Sales & marketing
Our highly qualified team of business consultants and account managers are the first people you will speak to at translate plus. They make sure you receive the tailored approach you are looking for in a cost-effective way. They each specialise in certain industry verticals, so you are guaranteed to speak with someone who knows your sector inside out. And they dress rather well, too! When it comes to marketing, we ensure the smooth-running of regular industry events, we keep our web, social media and PR presence up-to-date, and we create case studies, fact sheets, brochures and other documentation on an ongoing basis.
Our project management teams represent the central point of our service offering, always going the extra mile, making sure our clients receive the highest quality service and results. What they don’t know about managing projects isn’t worth knowing! Our project managers are friendly, professional and extremely organised and all have a strong linguistic background coupled with a high level of technical knowledge. Our in-house localisation engineering, QA (quality assurance), DTP (desktop publishing), linguistic resources and translator teams work closely with our project managers for the best possible results.
IT support & development
Our fantastic in-house developers ensure our clients receive truly bespoke technical solutions, no matter how challenging or ground-breaking they may need to be. They are the brains behind the regular enhancements you will see within i plus, our translation management system, as well as working on internal development tasks which often end up as industry-leading solutions. Backed up by solid IT infrastructure and desktop support, we are at the cutting edge of localisation technology.
Keeping a clear overview of finances is essential to running a sustainable and efficient business. Across credit control, accounts payable and accounts receivable functions, we use our internally developed applications and industry-standard accounting software to ensure invoices are issued in line with our clients' requirements, that suppliers are paid on time, and that any queries are handled promptly and professionally. Staff payroll, pensions administration and bank reconciliation are just some of the other responsibilities which our accounts team handle smoothly on a day-to-day basis.
HR & administration
Our smallest – though hugely important! – team ensures that translate plus runs smoothly as a professional workplace in line with laws and regulations as well as the requirements of the ISO 9001 and ISO 17000 standards. From hiring the best possible talent and organising our company away-weekends to delivering ongoing training and keeping us all stocked up on fresh fruit, they have a positive impact on all areas of the business.
