“We have worked with Surrey Translation Bureau (STB) for several years now whenever our in-house translation team needs additional support. STB always provide an efficient, first-class service with projects delivered on-time every time. The translations are always of a very high quality across many different document types. It’s a very successful partnership and we value our cooperation with STB enormously.”

Laying down the foundation

Surrey Translation Bureau (STB) started working with Schueco UK Ltd in July 2018. We have gradually progressed from translating small press releases to bigger presentations as well as other marketing and technical documents in recent years. The frequency of the projects sent by the client has also increased. We mainly provide Schueco with translation from German to English.

Building a strong partnership

Due to the specialised nature of the texts we translate for Schueco, we have put together a dedicated team of linguists who understand the specialist terminology used in the industry and who have become familiar with the client’s expectations in terms of style. Schueco also provided us with their own style guide and a glossary of terms, which also helps to ensure consistency across projects. The client is extremely receptive and responsive to our queries, ranging from technical to operational subjects, which means the translations we undertake are always delivered to a high standard.

“I thoroughly enjoy working with the entire team at Schueco. Their flexibility, professionalism and willingness to assist in any way they can truly means that we are able to deliver the best quality translation every time.”
