Then I thought it would be unfair to blame a business or an organisation for not implementing something they aren’t familiar with. Let’s face it. To most people terminology management sounds as exciting as a quarterly VAT return. But just like bookkeeping, terminology management often comes to the foreground when things go wrong. However, too often organisations overlook it or see it as an additional cost because they don’t quite understand what it is and/or how they can benefit...

I needed Mastermind Translations team’s help with an urgent translation. I didn’t expect them to be able to complete it with such excellent precision and in such a short time. I’ll now take the translated document to the Embassy, and tell all my colleagues in Jakarta about their utmost professionalism. Thank you very much for your help!”

The translation was excellent in every respect and the quality of the customer service and prompt contact were unparalleled. The offer also represented a very good value for money. In my opinion, it’s definitely worth paying more for a better quality service. You can then be sure your document is translated by a professional medical translator. This is especially important when you’re dealing with medical documentation where a tiny detail can make a huge difference. Once again,...
