Translation is a team effort

A good translation is the product of a close-knit and united team effort, where each player knows their role and the ultimate objective. At Lacrosse roles are separate and clearly defined.

  • Account Managers will get to know you and your needs, guide through each stage in the decision process and present you with a range of options to meet your turnaround, budget and other expectations.
  • Project Managers take care of the translation process itself, through selection of suitably-qualified and experienced translators, reviewers, copy editors and where necessary consultants. They will set up your projects in an efficient and agile way, using the latest CAT tools with all available reference materials and guidelines, monitoring each stage of the process to ensure that your deadlines and expectations are met.

Cooperation, the right technologies and open communication is the key to successful execution of your translations; whether you need a fast, same day service, or when it comes to complex multi-lingual long-term projects.
