Organization Overview

Conversis is a provider of globalisation, internationalisation, localisation and translation services. We do business in more than 50 countries worldwide and work in more than 70 different languages. When meaning matters, multinational companies use Conversis. At Conversis, translation is more than just our bread and butter; it's our milk and honey too..

We're passionate about the language translation service we provide and we're passionate about meaning. But we are also humble. We understand that translation and localisation is usually just a small part of a much larger project for our clients. Our ability to recognise and understand where we fit into our clients' projects and business strategy is critical.

We like to say we have five major selling points. This is what they are:

1. When you deal with us, you're dealing with a business-savvy partner. We will always consider your larger project and factor that into our planning. That means we take deadlines, accuracy and quality seriously.

2. We're big enough to cope with volume but small enough to be flexible and reactive to your needs. We tailor each project to your unique needs by designing a process that works seamlessly with your company's processes and procedures.

3. We get close to you. We understand the vast majority of our clients are not localisation experts. That's our job. We get our highly experienced project managers as close to the client as possible so they can fully understand the client's business and their specific needs. This creates transparency on our side as well.

4. Return on investment. We take this seriously. And it doesn't just mean doing our job well. We could do a technically perfect translation that does nothing to promote or sell your product. If that happens, we have failed. Instead, together we take your product or marketing material and focus on how we can best make that work in the target market.

5. An unrivalled network of experts. We have a worldwide database of individual experts we can draw on. For each project, we identify appropriate translators with experience in the relevant discipline and industry. We structure our project management resources so that they have vertical industry experience and we keep our engineering and desktop publishing resources in-house so that technical challenges are managed within the Conversis team.
