Our expertise at your service
Excellent project management
No matter what the type, size or number of languages of your project, successful translation and interpreting starts with excellent project management, which involves more than just overseeing your project from start to finish.
At Birdwell Translation & Technology, our project managers work very closely with you to understand your needs and to ensure that your objectives are achieved.
They develop long-term relationships with our clients, helping them improve quality and reduce costs.
Languages, cultures and technology: that’s what we’re all about at Birdwell Translation & Technology. Our role is to enable you to communicate effectively in multilingual, multicultural and multi-technology situations.
Our project managers and linguists use many different professional tools to handle your multilingual content in wide-ranging files and formats.
Our online client portal provides a secure, simple, accessible and easy-to-use extranet making it possible to track the status of each project along with the project’s financial information.
Excellent translators and interpreters
We are proud of our team of professional translators, editors and interpreters. Not only do they have an excellent command of both their mother tongue and a foreign language, they also have in-depth knowledge of a particular industry. Our network includes subject matter experts (SMEs) in a range of technical fields. We value the time and experience our linguists invest in our clients’ projects and we appreciate our long–standing relationships we have developed over the years!
