Six Continents is an active member of the largest translation industry organisations in the world.
These professional bodies aim to represent translation agencies and to promote the image of the industry among customers, by promoting organisation and professionalism in our business.
Gaëtan Chretiennot, founder and director of Six Continents, is regularly asked by them to share his experience and vision as a speaker.
Six Continents is also the representative French translation company in the European Eulogia alliance. Founded in 1994, this alliance of 22 translation agencies now has over 25 years of history.
Eulogia members have to prove their credentials, as the alliance only accepts one member from each country!
To be selected, each agency has to command a sound reputation and focus on outstanding service quality in order to uphold the reputation of the alliance.
Eulogia aims to improve the sharing of knowledge, experience and expertise in the language business and therefore enable its members to collaborate closely within the translation industry.
ESSENTIAL TECHNOLOGY PLAYERS
Backed by our network including major technology players in translation, such as SDL, Kilgray and XTRF, we have a permanent and unmatched edge, giving you the guarantee of the highest level of performance in our translation services.
XTRF is the most advanced and most efficient solution for secure collaborative project management. This platform enables us to receive and instantaneously process your order, making us as responsive as you expect.
In addition, the processing pathway of translation projects is closely tracked and every step recorded and logged, meeting the strictest translation quality standards. You could even track the progress of your own project in real time.
Memsource, Trados Studio and memoQ provide the most ergonomic and efficient working environments for translators and reviewers.
We convert your translation expenditure into investment: every sentence we translate is stored in your latest-generation translation memory. Your documents become more consistent and you do not have to pay twice to translate the same sentence.
Having leading-edge systems would amount to nothing if we did not have experience in using them. Six Continents is certified for each of these solutions.
