Hands-on Cases
Unparalleled Strengths
  • Translating demands a brain work of concentrated professionalism nature. The persistently dependable and quality translations are always built on close collaboration between a stable, high caliber and disciplined in-house linguist team, an experienced project management team and DTP professionals.
  • Our continuous development is underpinned by innovations in every aspect, be it management innovation, process innovation, or business innovation, which are also what the management of the Linguist Team highly values in daily work.
  • We attach greater importance to every translation assignment than our clients from keeping confidentiality for clients, helping clients identify problems in the source files to seeking advice from clients (if necessary). We understand that a great concern over translation quality represents the supreme respect towards our clients.
  • We do translating, not a deal! Since our inception in January 2003, the Linguist Team at PracTrans has been committed to a lifetime pursuit, i.e., keeping away from fickleness, accumulating steadily and becoming dignified “craftsmen” in translating field.
  • Thanks to our complete staffing and 16 years of practice, we have put in place a set of integrated and pragmatic workflow and empowered ourselves to deliver translations above-and-beyond the industrial average standard.
  • Our Native Translations are jointly performed by Chinese linguists and the native speakers of the target languages, for example we have British and American professionals, old China hands, fluent in Chinese, translating from Chinese to 腾讯分分彩新奇趣.
  • All associates at PracTrans undertake to observe the philosophy that for the tasks within our capacity, we will spare no pains to ensure no errors; regarding any task that goes beyond our competence, we will, by no means, shy away from our weakness; rather, we will seek assistance both internally and externally to see the problems are properly solved at last.
  • Keeping secrets for our clients is part and parcel of our work. We organize independent project team for every client. Information within each project team is kept strictly confidential from those outside. Without authorization, any staff outside the team has no right to access the confidential information of the clients. All employees are required to sign the Employee Non-disclosure Agreement when joining PracTrans, and we enter into the Translation Non-disclosure Agreement with the clients. Together, these steps better ensure the safety of clients’ information legally.
