Our story

We have been a strong and trusted presence in Italy’s language services sector since 2001. After a number of years as part of a well-known international franchise, we began a new chapter in 2015, beginning with a radical process of analysis and transformation of our service. Why react to change when you can anticipate it?

The turning point

In the beginning was translation. In our early days there was a clear distinction between communicators and linguists. Then everything changed with the spread of the internet and social networks. The need arose for inter-disciplinary skills and “cross-pollination”. In 2013 we responded by innovating, drawing on the expertise of communications specialists and technology laboratories, and identifying the flaw in the obsolete and anachronistic DNA of traditional language services agencies. The result was a radical transformation of our service and working methods.

Our working methods

Contrary to common belief, the future does not lie in automatic translation. For those involved in multilingual communication, it lies in a perfect match of quality and innovation. We have designed and developed working methods that involve the client and guarantee total and effective contextualisation of texts.
