Novoterm Translation was launched in 1996. The idea of the founders was a simple one: to ensure that the clients’ target groups could get important information in their own language. This mission is no less relevant today than it was 20 or so years ago, even though more and more people speak a foreign language these days.
Why is it so important? Quite simply because people have the best chance of understanding information if it’s written in their own language. When reading information in a foreign language there is always a risk of missing nuances, subtext or cultural references. Many people understand the actual content of a text written in a foreign language that they speak. But why risk the message being lost in a rough interpretation or translation? As long as today’s language diversity and the need for people to communicate with each other exist, there will always be a need for translation services.
This is the fundamental reason for Novoterm’s existence and growth over almost a quarter of a century. There are currently ten of us working at our office in Stockholm and we all speak one or more languages in addition to our native language, which in most cases is Swedish. We have a well-established network of around one hundred carefully selected translators – our international colleagues. We are a close-knit family and we pay particular attention to maintaining a great relationship with our translators – we understand what an incredibly important asset they are. We are proud to say that many of them have worked with us for a very long time – several from the start.
For more than 20 years we have delivered high-quality translations in most fields and subject areas. Today we work closely with translators in 40 different languages and language variations. We are also highly skilled at language editing/proofreading and can offer these services in most of our translation languages as well. You can count on us to always do our utmost to meet your needs as well as our own standards, and to deliver the very best quality. Most of our clients come back to us year after year – and we’re proud of that.
