Who are our medical and pharmaceutical Somali translators?
All medical translation work is conducted by highly qualified Somali translators. We ensure that each individual project is undertaken by the most suitable translator whose educational and professional background matches the project in hand.
The performance of our translators is monitored based against key performance criteria: accuracy, consistency, knowledge of subject terminology, formatting and completeness. They are re-evaluated regularly to ensure the high standards are maintained.
With the exception of linguists covering languages with rare status, as a minimum, our translators:
- must have a relevant first degree, postgraduate qualification or corresponding qualification
- are able to demonstrate a number of years full-time work in an appropriate field.
We assign a project manager to every assignment to ensure the project runs smoothly and is delivered on time and within budget.
