The World's largest hostel booking site translated into 18 languages.
Amazing technology, simple and easy processes, fast turnaround and great prices are all things Straker offers for our clients. But nothing beats our World leading customer service which sets the highest of bars for the translation industry. We offer 24/7 customer support (and we're not just talking about having a web site running with a form on it) from our 2 major global production centers (one in Australasia and one in Barcelona). Our call centre staff can speak over 12 languages and ensure you can log on to our customer portal, email, web chat or phone us at any time to get an update on your project or request changes. Our team work tirelessly to make sure nothing goes wrong and you get your project when or before it is due.
Over the past few years we have developed and refined our amazing 'Transl8' translation platform, enabling us to deliver the fastest translations available and to your specified quality level. You will get a delivery timeframe in our quote and we ensure we get it to you when it is due. We support over 80 languages and have more than 5,000 registered and validated translators available.
With the increase in content volumes, speed to market and variable translation types required it is now more important than ever to map the cost of your translation services to the task required. It’s also critical to ensure that as translation assets are created they are able to be reused to lower the cost of ongoing projects. Our ability to offer per hour translation rates and our integrated translation workbench and memory tools ensure we can provide the best-value translation service available.
There is no hiding that our technology platform gives us our competitive advantage. From a base of 8 years of development of our multilingual CMS we have added a further 2 years of concentrated work we have built a powerful translation platform that enables our clients to speed up, simplify and lower the cost of getting translations completed.
Straker have been in business since 1999 and have served over 10,000 clients and many of them leading global brands. With proven scalability and production capacity and systems built up over many years you are guaranteed the highest quality of service, delivery and translations.
One of the most interesting things we have found is that there no direct correlation between translator speed and quality. Our fastest translators can produce the same high quality as a slower translator. We use our advanced testing and auditing systems to naturally select the fastest and most accurate translators for our clients.
EN:15038 - EUROPEAN STANDARD FOR TRANSLATION QUALITY
We are certified to EN 15038, the global standard for the translation industry and the benchmark for translation quality. Our last audit to retain EN 15038 certification was successfully completed by global certification body VNZ in January 2013. For more information on the standard see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EN_15038.
At Straker we have developed and documented a quality management system to manage the company’s global translation service that complies with the European Standard and ISO9001:2008.
Over 30% of the cost of translations services can be in the import, export and formatting of content. At Straker we make things easy by having tools to easily import and export content from any format including InDesign, XML, MS Office Documents and many others. We also have staff to handle even the trickiest of file layouts and foreign character font issues. We also have a powerful API to automate translation workflows, the ability to build customer machine translation engines for an enterprise and all all projects have the terminology and translation memory stored in our Transl8 platform for future reuse.

I just got back from a workshop where I used the training material your team translated into Mandarin. The translation is FANTASTIC! This was the first time I reached out to an online translation service. I didn't know what to expect and was admittedly skeptical of the process. Your team blew me away with prompt response and the platform itself was incredibly easy to use. I'm very impressed and delighted with the entire experience. You saved me a ton of time, stress, and made me look great during the workshop – all of this within 24 hours! Thank you so much!
