General Questions

1. wHAT IS FIDUS?

NO, we would never use google translate. Google translate + other translation tools are very handy for people who needs a quick translation to get a general idea of a sentence, segment etc. However, we would never recommend them for companies that aim at international growth.

2. What makes you different from other linguistic agencies?

Yes, you can. All our translators sign a non-disclosure agreement before starting to work with us. Discretion and confidentiality are our core values.

3. Do you work with companies or privates?

You can send us an estimated word count, or you can just send us the document and one of our project managers will count them for you. Please note that a full A4 page contains about 250 words.

The client chooses the easiest method, email, post are the most common, and in any format, and non-priority delivery is included in the final price.

No, your project manager will help you and guide you through all the translation steps. They are in charge of the preparation, managing and supervising of your documents. They will not translate the documents, but they will be responsible of the final check.
