Quarterly newsletter

Winter 2017 Edition
News | Projects | Technology | International Business | Did you know...?        



It seems like yesterday when we decided to introduce the necessary changes in our company management in accordance with ISO-9001, but with our most recent renewal in December it has already been three years. This year we will commence our adaptation to the new version of ISO-9001, which will be compulsory for all companies from 2018.

In this newsletter we will present an amazing tool which enables the creation of bilingual databases based on the material already translated by the company without using a translation tool. Without a doubt this tool will be standard in current alignment systems.
