Project Overview

  • Client – Alpha Grid, creates media content that needs to be translated for their global clients in a multitude of languages.
  • Collaboration – Having had unpleasant translation experiences in the past, the company needed a locally based, German financial expert to translate financial content. Our team sourced the perfect translator to get the job done.
  • Our Approach – We carefully selected a translator who was a native German speaker and also fluent in English. A successful complementary translation sample was executed for the benefit of Alpha Grid as well as the translator. Translate By Humans (TBH) soon became Alpha Grid’s preferred company for language services!
