It used to be that the translation industry was confined to computerised language processing and placed within the information technology industry. This is no longer the case. The translation market is growing at a strong pace. More and more companies are connecting with each other globally and the need for language translation has increased considerably.
What makes McFelder Translations different?
Since it was founded in 2004, McFelder Translations has established a strong position in the global market and continues to grow its client base year on year. However, a common question is ‘what makes McFelder different?’
Fiona Feldermann, Managing Director, believes that client data security is key, and it is because the team at McFelder understands the advantages of a seamless supply chain that the company is uniquely placed to provide the confidence demanded by clients. By implementing a secure workflow with zero risk gaps where clients’ files are not sent directly to the translators.
Client data security is key
Clients often require the translation of documents which may contain highly classified information. For example, confidential and sensitive documentation relating to mergers & acquisitions, due diligence, new product launches, business closures, etc.
The translators, who have all passed our rigorous selection tests and screening processes, work in a secure environment and translate our clients’ documents via McFelder’s online platform without ever leaving our protected server environment.
‘In the typical translation workflow used by most language service providers, any classified client information could end up being sent out to external translators without control. They could even be manipulated or forwarded to other people. The risk of a security breach is very high, especially in the case of complex multilingual projects where a high number of external translators and revisers form part of the project team. All client translations and sensitive information must be protected from unauthorized access to safeguard the privacy or security of their organisation. Yes, it is true that documents can be password protected however McFelder offers a stronger solution.’
