Comms Multilingual was founded in February 2003 by Sue Orchard with the aim of providing quality translation and related services to businesses and other organisations.
Today, Comms Multilingual is a team of around 14 and a network of over 2,000 translators who provide specialist multilingual translation services, as well as localisation and adaptation of texts for clients around the world.
We believe in working closely with our clients to develop a strong partnership for the long term. Our translation agency is different to many, in that we assign a dedicated Project Manager to run the projects for each client and we work closely with our clients to become familiar with their strategy, ambitions and the way they like to work. We pride ourselves on a very high return rate for clients. Additionally, a lot of our new business comes from referrals, which we believe is testament to the way we do things.
About Our Clients
Comms has a strong base of clients from many different types of organisation in the UK, Europe, USA, Canada and Australia. Psychometrics, Human Resources, Professional Certifications, Training & e-Learning, Advertising and Marketing, IT, Software and Mobile Apps, Life Sciences, Professional Associations and Web Design are just some of the areas in which our clients work.
Comms Multilingual’s Translation Services
Comms Multilingual offers a wide range of services, including translation, transcreation, editing and proofreading, SME review, cognitive debriefing, typesetting, voice-overs, websites and multimedia in over 100 languages. Some of the more unusual languages that Comms Multilingual translates into are Wolof (the most widely spoken language in Senegal), Maori (New Zealand) and Hiligaynon (The Philippines).
We use techniques developed in-house to deliver a high quality product and an excellent customer experience, and leverage industry-standard tools such as Plunet for Project Management and memoQ as our primary translation management system (TMS).
Since 2007, we have been based out of our Head Office in Epsom, UK (just outside of London). Our sales, administration and operations departments are all located here.
About Our Translators
Our linguists are all native speakers and will invariably have extensive experience of the subject area in which they are translating. We always test and review them prior to working with them, and we require our multilingual translators to meet specific qualification criteria for working with us.
Our project managers are trained to select the best multilingual translator from our database for each project, based on the subject matter in question and the translator’s skillset. You can thus be sure of the quality of both our, and their, translation work.
Professional Accreditations and Associations
Comms Multilingual is a member of the Association of Translation Companies and the Association of Test Publishers. We are also certified under ISO 17100:2015, the ISO standard for translation, which underlines our commitment to quality.
