LOCALLY MINDED – INTERNATIONALLY FOCUSED…
Professional expertise working for you – project managers at your fingertips
Where it all started…
The company was started with one ideal in mind. Love what you do and do it well. With degrees in education, languages and linguistics the company’s directors worked as professional translators and interpreters for nearly a decade overseas before establishing TransNational Te Whakawhiti Whenua (by definition ‘spanning nations’). They worked in every part of the translation industry from SONY game-translation, financial institutions and global 500 companies; to interpreting and translating for international dignitaries, technical experts, and international businessmen. The company has grown to 12 locations nationwide with certified translations accepted by all New Zealand and Australian government departments.
“With 20 years of experience we have experienced every field of work both in interpreting and in written translation. Sometimes we would spend 3-4 hours of prep and research of our own time just to get it bang on. One day you could be interpreting about exporting milk powder to potential investors and the next it was the life of Van Gogh at an international conference. The one thing that has never changed, is that people always appreciate getting a flawless, professional service where they can see everything has just clicked for them.”
The same principles are applied to training our service team and project managers. We want them to understand every aspect of the job and understand our customers’ business to a high level. They can then perfectly match the skills and expertise of each translator or interpreter for the job. It means we can deliver exactly what is needed by offering the best in speed, quality and excellent service.
Our bilingual team are trained to understand and coordinate every aspect of your project. They work alongside translators, interpreters, graphic and web designers in over 24 languages. We understand exactly what you are looking for and can give you the right information instantly. If you have just one page to translate or an entire novel, subtitles for a DVD or need an interpreter in court, our bilingual staff are there every step of the way.
