Capita – second fishiest outsourcing firm

outsourcingWell we’re almost a year on following endless delays, cancellations, judicial collapses…and the recruitment of various species of the animal kingdom instead of fully qualified interpreters. While Capita Translation and Interpreting (formerly Applied Language Solutions) didn’t make it to the top spot as fishiest outsourcing firm, they did come an impressive second place.

If you require a professionally qualified and specialist interpreter for your outsourcing assignment, Atlas can help you find somebody suited to your needs. Alternatively, if you only require an interpreter’s services for a limited time and do not require them to be present at your location, then our 24-7 telephone interpreting service could be the perfect option for you to reduce costs. Setting up an account is free of charge and enables you to use this flexible service as and when you wish with no hidden charges. Why not give us a call?!
