If you’re in the translation and localization industry, we know just how difficult it can be to find professional reliable translators who consistently deliver high quality work and are a delight to deal with.
TAGS – Language Solutions (let’s call it TAGS for short, OK?) is a Portuguese boutique translation agency and might just be the perfect Single Language Vendor for your European Portuguese needs.
We are firm believers in the mother tongue principle and therefore only translate into our native language:
Our source languages are English, German, French and Spanish.
Read on for just some of the reasons why you should work with us.
With a team of two in-house linguists, we can offer an extra proofreading step after the usual translation and editing process. Our clients are usually big fans of this service as it saves time and takes some of the load off project managers. During busier times or for larger volumes we rely on a solid network of trusted translators and editors. But please note that we don't have a large pool of translators. We don't have a recruitment procedure in place, but instead only work with qualified translators whom we know personally and share our values.
We understand how important it is to get a speedy reply to a job enquiry and not be left hanging. We do everything we can to respond to all enquires as quickly as we can, especially if we can’t accept them. Our official office hours are from 9am to 5.30pm CET on weekdays. However, if you’re elsewhere in the world you normally can reach us by phone or email at a time that works for both you and us.
Whether it’s working with different client portals, assignment and delivery methods, linguistic and technical instructions, invoicing methods or quality management tools, we can always adapt to your needs. We work with all the main CAT tools, but we’re more than happy to take the time to get to grips with any customer-specific tools. We also love mixing things up, switching between different types of task and subject areas.
We’re always up to the minute with current market trends. Our rates are competitive, but we never compromise on quality. For details about our rates, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
There’s never a dull day at TAGS. Our downtime is spent learning new skills and tools, improving our working languages and researching our subject fields. We try to take part on trainings offered by clients as much as we can, but we also regularly attend training courses as part of our continuous professional development.
