Time is of the essence! Translating on tight deadlines
People are waiting - important decisions can’t be made without the right information. High volumes, very tight deadlines and complex processes: a challenge CLS revels in meeting every day.
The project at a glance
The client’s position: Zürcher Kantonalbank provides analyst reports on a wide range of companies to its institutional investors and private clients. These arrive in German and early every morning they all need to be translated into English.
The job requirements: Very tight deadlines and fast turn-around times. It also means specialist translation of technical financial language. In addition, due to the complexity of the project and the number of files and different languages, organisation is crucial.
Getting it done: CLS has the resources to meet the challenge. A dedicated team of specialist translators and project management has been assembled to successfully take care of all the client’s requirements. In addition, at the project’s start, CLS’s IT experts were brought in to set up Argus, a file-handling software that is fundamental to the success of the project.
