Swindon-based translation agency, Syntacta, has been recognised as a key service for businesses trading, and looking to trade, internationally.
Syntacta was a finalist in the services category of the South West Business Insider International Trade Awards. Now in their second year, these awards recognize companies in the south west who represent the very best in overseas business success.
Translating over three million words a year for businesses looking to trade overseas, Syntacta helps businesses communicate across borders. Their work ranges from technical translations for specialist industries such as pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and engineering, to proofreading an existing translation to ensure accuracy and cultural briefings.
Krystyna Lenik, director (pictured), said: “Entering the international market can be a daunting prospect for many businesses due to the number of ‘unknowns.’ Good communication can make things easier and knowing your messages are not only being heard correctly, but are written and phrased in a way that people in your target country understand can help relieve one of those worries.
“Other countries have different ways of doing business too and so we can provide cultural briefings to customers to advise on local etiquette and customs, so that they don’t risk inadvertently offending their customers and so that business transactions can be conducted smoothly.”
Miri Thomas, South West Business Insider editor, said: “The sizes, markets and products of our shortlisted entries varies hugely; however, each of them has more than demonstrated a willingness to look beyond the easy and a determination to succeed overseas.”
Syntacta’s translators are all native speakers of the language they are translating into, to ensure accuracy and fluency. For more information on Syntacta, visit www.syntacta.co.uk.
