Project Management at a translation agency

How do we find the best person for your job? Introducing Pedro.

Project Management at a translation agency – since 1991!

Back in 1991 we had files and files of application forms and CVs, but as the company grew we realised we needed a searchable database to enable us to quickly choose the best person for each job. We looked at many options, but nothing available off the shelf did exactly what we wanted.

So we built our own complete project management system, called β€˜Pedro’. Pedro allows us to keep track of all our suppliers and our client work, giving our project managers everything they need at their fingertips.

Pedro contains details of over 4000 approved freelance suppliers and allows us to search according to language (including regional variations), location, and specialisms, to find the most suitable supplier for your requirements.

We only work with suppliers with a proven track record within the industry and their area of expertise. To ensure quality, all suppliers are selected in accordance with our BS EN ISO 9001:2015 for quality management and the ISO 17100:2015 for translation services.

As an extensive database, Pedro allows us to search quickly and efficiently to cover more than 340 languages.

We use Pedro to find support services such as design and layout, brand-checking, interpreting (inc. telephone), transcription, voiceover, cultural training and much more.

It is worth mentioning that at the time of writing we have in excess of 4000 approved suppliers, but we also have more than 6000 who have not been approved because they have not met our requirements.

Call us on 01727 812 725 to let us know what you need and we can help. Send us an email to team@atlas-translations.co.uk. We respond quickly to all enquiries. Or use the little icons here on the website for live chat (it really is one of us) or to request a call back within 27 seconds.

Atlas have been translating (policy documents) for us into several languages since 2004. They are friendly and efficient and have always provided accurate and cost-effective translations well within the agreed deadlines.

The translator did an impeccable job. The translation notes were not only helpful but showed a tremendous dedication to the task and outstanding professionalism all around. A very special thank you to Atlas.

I was particularly impressed with the speed in which you turned the work around, and the quality of the work was excellent. Many thanks. It was a pleasure working with you.

Atlas provided another high-quality French translation of one of our policy briefs. They respond quickly to our needs and delivered a document that we were confident to send straight to printing and distribution. We’re happy to include Atlas as one of our trusted partners.
