Foreign Tongues

Foreign Tongues' have provided translation and interpreting services to the market research industry for more than twenty years. Whilst we are a relatively small company, our size and specialisation in the research sector allows us to adapt our translation service to fit each individual company's project, dependent on their needs. Rather than asking the client to work to another's strict 'corporate' methodology, with unfamiliar software packages, or extend project deadline to external delivery times, Foreign Tongues tailors its service to integrate with each client's workflow and practises, from proposal to completion, to provide the most efficient project co-ordination and service delivery.

A thorough understanding of the individual client's requirements for a given brief and preferred work methodology is paramount at Foreign Tongues. Our experience within the research sector has identified the need for immediacy of response to any request for information required by our clients to help support, or is key to, their client proposal any prolonged delay often making the difference between the winning or losing of a project. Foreign Tongues fulfils each client request with a comprehensive and detailed cost breakdown for each project within 20 minutes of receiving the client brief, as opposed to hours (or even days) from possible alternative translation service providers. This speed of response, and continued support throughout the proposal stage, provides our clients with a competitive edge, enabling them to answer any query raised by their client within moments.

Our speed of turnaround is deemed by many to be the best in the business. The research industry tells us they want the services Foreign Tongues provide and consider it indispensable to their needs.
