Virtual Staffing, or why you should consider adopting outside knowledge

Think about the times when, although you had tens of options in your database, you couldn’t find one translator who suited the needs and budget for that particular project. The times when you realized you need to catch up on vendor management or when it was obvious you need an extra pair of eyes for that final QC check because other tasks were piling up. In short. the moments when the available resources, capabilities and know-how were simply not enough, and you felt your company can use an expansion in one direction or another.

itlocal brings you the ultimate solution to such problems: our virtual staffing service. What does that entail? In short, we can provide you with one or more of our in-house resources who will work for your company from our Bucharest office. These resources can cover different positions: Project manager, translator/editor, Vendor manager but also engineers which can be in charge of both graphics/DTP and also CAT tool developers.  It’s a simple idea but the benefits can have a major positive impact. The reason behind this is fairly straightforward: when choosing our virtual staffing program, you gain more than just one remote employee; you receive a whole package of complementary benefits, industry know-how and small perks that will increase the speed of your internal operations and let you focus on achieving a healthy growth.

Here’s a glimpse on some of the benefits:

  • Dedicated resource + other in-house resources (according to chosen plan) from our ISO 9001 and 17100 certified LSP with a decade of experience in the industry. We were lucky enough to start off in this business just as the major changes were happening and we successfully managed to ride on the technological wave which is now defining the industry.
  • Access to our rich resource database
  • Global reach across multiple time zones
  • COMPLETE TRANSPARENCY – it’s like paying a remote employee, but instead you receive added value from a whole team of professionals.
  • Auxiliary services: translation memory data base management; language alignment work; language engineering, maintenance, etc.
  • Lower translation cost with at least the same delivery quality as it could be obtained from a local resource
  • Back-up services and experience from a whole team of professionals

What we will do for you:

  • We will offer an experienced dedicated PM who will manage your translation projects/vetted translator or editor/skillful Vendor manager/talented DTP specialist/tool developer
  • We will get familiar with your ERP Platforms and also install on our PCs the CAT tools imposed by your needs
  • Enrich your resource pool with linguists selected from our database containing over 300+ vetted professional translators
