QUALIFICATIONS AND AWARDS

We are a team with excellent qualifications and a commitment to CPD. We know that being a translator takes much more than just being a good linguist, and we recognise the many hats that people in our profession wear. They have to be superb writers and skilled researchers, have a keen eye for detail, demonstrate sound knowledge of their specialisms and manage their work efficiently.

That’s why we have an ongoing programme of CPD and qualification-building baked into our everyday practices. We ensure that our team is given regular opportunities to review client requirements and participate in professional development events on writing skills, subject knowledge and translation software. We also hold regular LKTeam Days in which the team gathers together for a day of training and exercise, and we extend some of these to include our freelance partners. Here are some of the qualifications we’ve gained and the responsibilities we hold within the profession:

 

  • Undergraduate degrees in languages and MA degrees in translation (held by all our translation team members)
  • Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (MITI) status, an exam-assessed qualification from the UK’s main professional body for translators (held by the majority of our team members)
  • Corporate Membership of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting
  • Membership of the Association of Translation Companies
  • Positions on committees within the Institute of Translation and Interpreting: the Professional Development Committee and Scottish Network Committee
  • Participation in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme
  • Regular talks and panel discussions as part of Manchester’s Business Growth Hub, events hosted by Rochdale Development Agency and various industry conferences
