What are the advantages of LEFER TRADUCTIONS?

How do you convince specifiers and clients to use new products and adopt methods that shake up well-established habits? How do you make people feel confident and safe about the profitability and technical reliability of emerging solutions?

Effective communication can help.

You need to describe your products both online and offline effectively to make your offer known, expand your business outside your local marketsand win over industry experts whose native language is not English. English may be the global language, but research shows that people much prefer using their native language to make purchase decisions. THis is why it's so important to use professional linguists specializing in the building industry. Mastering a language is obviously a required skill for writing and translating efficiently, but on its own, it's not enough. And automated translation tools tend to standardize or indeed detract from your company's content.

I belong to various professional networks, with access to a reliable, dedicated team to deliver your translation projects. We can help you:
