Knowing how to choose the right translation company can be a daunting task, especially bearing in mind that the company you choose will be responsible for bridging the gap between your company’s communication and the outside world.
As we can clearly see in any basic web search, translation companies are ever more ubiquitous. Whether stemming from increased international operations of companies or the needs of individuals to translate their documents for a wide variety of purposes, translation has become part of our corporate day-to-day activities. Vis-à-vis this scenario, the best path for you is to select a translation company that is properly qualified and specialized in your area of business.
We developed this article exploring three key aspects involved in the search for an outstanding translation company, namely: Leadership, Experience, and Differentiators.
Based on these three points, you can rest assured that BTS is the right choice for you.
Please bear with us until the end of the text, and you will be able to come to a decision about one of the best translation agencies in Brazil.
Current scenario of translation agencies on the Brazilian market
In the first place, we’d like to demonstrate that – when searching for a translation agency – you’re going to come across all kinds of services and translators, all kinds of prices, and all kinds of promises of quality. However, we know that not all that glitters is gold; when the final translation is delivered, if it is subpar, the company that hired the service may even run the risk of incurring a loss or otherwise be harmed.
To begin with, companies that actually specialize in corporate translations are scarce on the market, forcing businesses that seek translation services to request such services from non-specialized agencies that simply translate everything: from processes for obtaining citizenship to student exchange documents. There’s certainly nothing wrong with these services, or with such agencies. Nonetheless, as a translation company specializing in the corporate market – which exclusively serves Businesses – we know that the day-to-day routines, the demands, the deadlines and even a company’s own documents are very different and often necessitate completely different experience and parlance.
Not only that, but the majority of conventional translation agencies resort to non-specialized freelance translators, which can compromise (and seriously) the quality of the translation.
As we said previously, we will begin by stressing the point of leadership!
To be at the forefront of a market as big as the translation market, it’s necessary to have attributes that differentiate and qualify us as a translation company. We list some of these characteristic below, which can help you find a market-leading translation company:
– More than 20 years’ experience!
We’ve earmarked a section to look further into BTS’s experience in business translation. But, just to give you a better idea of who we are: we started out back in 1995, with the goal of being the number-one option in translation services for companies. And our goal remains the same to this very day!
– Specializing in the area of corporate translation
Our name conveys our very purpose: BTS (Business Translation Services) specializes in translations for businesses! We believe that when you have a sharp focus, you can concentrate your strength on being the best. And our focus is precisely on fulfilling your company’s translation needs, following a completely different work flow from that of a translation agency
geared toward individuals.
– Consultative client service
Because we know the true value of service, BTS has developed a consultative service team. So, when you contact us, you’ll receive consultative client service whereby we discuss the project, your specific needs, and how best to serve you in a personalized way.
– Ongoing training of our professionals
Offering a highly qualified team of translators guarantees the success of a market-leading translation agency! BTS fully understands this point, so we train our employees on an ongoing basis, through refresher courses. We work with the best; therefore, we know that our greatest asset is people.
– Flexible client service channels
After so many years in business and so many projects delivered to our clients, we’ve been able to gain an in-depth understanding of their needs. Therefore, we know that being able to serve our clients in different and wide-ranging ways is the pathway toward offering convenience and speed. This is why we offer client service and price quotes through our website (with the online quote tool that allows you to attach the documents that you need to get translated), via messaging (e.g. WhatsApp), by phone, by email, and even in person. Thus, our clients can feel free to talk to us whenever and wherever they feel most comfortable.
Understanding why leadership makes a world of difference, now we’re going to talk a bit about our second point: Experience!
With 25 years of experience on the translation market, we’ve been through countless situations and learned important lessons from them. Perhaps part of what a company can offer can be acquired with good investments. However, certain assets only come with time and experience. Below we list some of them, so you can see how important this path has been for us.
– Clients and projects of all sizes
We’ve already had to organize our team of translators and reviewers to carry out high-volume and detailed projects, which required work performed perfectly and swiftly in order to meet tight deadlines.
– Assembling a skilled and experienced team
Consolidating a strong team takes time, especially one made up of highly qualified and reliable professionals with sufficient experience to add value and enrich translation in specific areas. We always give preference to professionals with a strong command of the language, culture, and area of expertise regarding the specific translation at hand.
– Transparency about the way we work
On our website, you can check out several cases that demonstrate and exemplify the countless challenging situations where we’ve been successful. We’re constantly improving our processes to make them more effective, and to make life easier for our partners! This macro-vision in order to develop strategies for optimal solutions is the fruit of many years of performing top-notch work.
– Solutions in all types of translation
Only a translation company with years of experience is properly suited to work with different types of translation – such as certified, technical, simultaneous (among others) – without relinquishing quality.
– Relationship with our clients
With so many projects carried out and so many partnerships forged with clients, we’ve managed to create genuine empathy in order to provide consultative service and, jointly with our clients, to reach the best solution for their translation needs.
– Improvements in the translation process
Through extensive practice, we’ve been able to improve our translation process, not only with qualified professionals, but with the latest technology as well. Over the years, we’ve built a huge repository of translated words, developing a vast and wide-ranging terminological bank.
– Technology with a human touch
Surely, technology is nothing without human specialization. Accordingly, we invest in continuous refresher training for our translators. Offering translations in six languages, BTS always encourages its translators to keep up-to-date and continue to evolve in their careers.
– Experience and excellence
We’ve built our history slowly and painstakingly, consolidating our bases with excellence and developing a way of providing services whereby our clients become our partners. We invest in state-of-the-art technology and qualified professionals. BTS – Business Translation Services has developed a concept in a translation company that combines experience with excellence, and is deeply concerned with delivering the best for our clients and their businesses.

– More than just professionals, we are specialists!
No technology can outperform the specialization and development of the human mind. Accordingly, we’ve assembled a team of translators who are much more than just language experts. Our professionals have specific backgrounds and work in a wide array of fields. For instance, we have former financial market executives who perform specialized translations in this area, and lawyers who translate legal texts, among other examples.
– Various areas of specialization
A remarkable translation company needs to know how to navigate through diverse areas of business. Therefore, BTS offers translation services in various fields of specialization, such as: Business, Financial, Technical and Engineering, Information Technology (IT), Telecommunications, Legal, Insurance, Medical and Pharmaceutical, among others.
– End-to-end service
Client service is essential for establishing a relationship of trust. Accordingly, we’ve created a service network that functions like a veritable consulting firm. This means that, after contacting our team, the client receives consultative service to obtain the best solution for their specific translation project. Aside from this consultative service, what also sets us apart is our extremely swift response to the client with a price quote, and we carefully handle their project from end to end. Once the translation project is approved, a project manager will be assigned and will attend to all stages of the process, without overlooking any detail whatsoever.
