Translation and Interpreting


Many years ago, Willy Brandt, former West German Chancellor, reportedly said: "If I'm selling to you, I speak your language.† If I'm buying, dann muessen Sie Deutsch sprechen (Translation: then you must speak German)."† Indeed globalization makes so much more sense with localization, which in turn starts with using your customerís language.†


While working with companies in Asia, Europe and North America, from time to time, we find companies either do not market their products or/and services in their customersí language/s, or have poor and unprofessional translation and interpreting.† This reflects badly on those companies and by all means is costly.† In an attempt to salvage such situations, companies often approach us for help in the midst of our consulting work.† To them, Olive Kan Global is a rare find: international business and trade experience, fields of expertise, coupled with our teamís professional training and experience in translation and interpreting.† We are frequently invited to proofread translations, and help interview/hire/evaluate translators and interpreters.† In response to our clientsí request, we have therefore added translation and interpreting to our line of services.† This allows us to provide value-added service to our clients while saving their money at the same time.†
