The challenge

It takes high-quality translations to establish the young platform rebelle.com as an international online marketplace. Website content and numerous article and brand descriptions need to be translated into English and Dutch. The translators must have specific expertise in the fashion and marketing sectors to handle these tasks. There is also legal content like the terms and conditions, and also the privacy policy, that specialist require translators with experience in this area. The website content is kept up to date at all times. This kind of update or new content requires quick and accurate translation by the language service provider. Flexibility, precision and speed are key to the entire translation process, especially when the customer has its sights set on foreign markets.
