Poised midway between Tokyo and London, San Francisco is ideally placed as a center of global business. Historically the primary port for Pacific trade, nearly 30% of West Coast trading is done through its Bay Area facilities, and much of this trade is international.
With the Chinese economy slowing down in recent years, more companies are turning westwards for new business opportunities in Europe, and expansion on a global scale. As of 2016, California was rated the sixth largest economy in the world, with huge market sectors such as technology and tourism backed up by solid financial institutions.
Ever since the 1848 Gold Rush, San Francisco has been at the center of a vast growth of international investment. It is a city of world commerce, which is renowned as a hub for the development of emerging global markets. This vibrant economy attracts and supports a wide range of industries: the city's long-term growth strategy is focused on several key sectors, in particular the environmental and 'clean' technologies, life sciences and biotech. It has a solid infrastructure to support the expansion of professional services and international business.
San Francisco is perhaps unique in its collaboration between its academic research facilities and its industries, promoting innovation and with massive regional job growth predicted by 2020. Under the recent local government administration, overall unemployment in the city has dropped from 10% to 2.95% since 2010, and many multinational companies such as Gap, Levi Strauss, Uber and Twitter have bases here.
The San Francisco Center for Economic Development (SFCED) offers many incentives for new business in the city, and particularly for companies involved in producing alternative energies and clean power. Local government in San Francisco also has a dedicated business portal which offers every help and assistance in setting up a new business here, including helpful Starter Kits which suggest specific target areas in which you might be interested.
What they do not have, however, are translation services for international business, and this is where Teck Language Solutions is on hand to deliver all the additional assistance you may need in conducting global business in San Francisco.
Features of our translation services
To conduct your business successfully, both in the Bay Area and around the world, all your transactions must be precise to the letter, and it is essential that correct documentation is also available in any language you might need to complete these transactions smoothly. For this you will need a professional translation service, such as Teck Language Solutions.
Our team of dedicated professional translators will not only transcribe your documents from your base language to your target languages, but they will also take into account all the relevant aspects of your business – and the fine details which those documents reflect. In Europe, for example, the language used for technical documentation and operating manuals is closely regulated across all EU member states, so if your business is in these sectors, you are legally obliged to provide your European customers with professionally translated texts.
At Teck Language Solutions we are thoroughly trained in all types of business documentation, including technical, legal, financial or other areas such as biomedical. Our expert linguists work with the latest technology so as to produce the best possible translations for you at the lowest possible cost. We are fully experienced in marketing terminologies and have wide experience of translating documents for multiple language markets.
We work to the official standards set by the American Translators Association and the European standard EN 15038 (old) / EN ISO 17100 (new), which ensure that only professional native-speaking translators are used, with many years of experience and areas of expertise. Quality is strictly controlled, both by human and software-based methods, which combine orthographical criteria with careful checks for completeness of meaning, consistent use of terminology and correct layout.
This is critically important in relation to pharmaceutical and medical texts, since these documents will have a direct impact on human life, and so a scrupulous and conscientious translation of such texts is crucial. If your business is in one of the fast-growing biomedical industries, we can be of immediate service to you.
At Teck Language Solutions we have many years of experience in translating such texts, working in numerous European countries in close connection with professional organizations such as medical chambers, hospitals and insurance companies. These long-term collaborations with our trusted translators offer excellent proof that our agency provides pharmaceutical and medical translations of the very highest standard.
We also recognize that the internet is one of today's essential marketing tools, particularly when targeting multiple language markets, where numerous factors include not only technical realization, but SEO and individual cultural characteristics, a complex challenge that experienced professionals can make simple for you. We can work with both static and dynamic web content, and for your convenience can also work directly in CMS systems.
Wherever your customers are located, Teck Language Solutions has a professional translator ready and able to meet your needs.
German Translations for San Francisco businesses
Your German-speaking clients and business partners might already speak fluent English, but the EU rules governing technical documentation require that such documents are provided in the native language of each European market. If your business deals in any kind of hardware or technology, you are legally obliged to provide your customers in German-speaking countries with professionally translated German-language documentation.
In order to achieve maximum impact in these markets, you must be capable of communicating with potential customers directly, in their own language, especially in the more conservative regions. You will reach people in Austria, Switzerland and some of the federal states in Southern Germany far more easily with professionally translated marketing materials, taking into account any local dialect variants which might pertain there.
We also offer German to English translations which could help in developing local business; in recent years several German companies have invested their business in San Francisco, including Roche, Lufthansa and BMW.
Italian Translation Services for San Francisco
The Italian-American Community has formed an integral part of the cultural and economic life of the San Francisco Bay Area since the 1800s, so establishing a business connection with Italy or with local Italian businesses could not be easier. Teck Language Solutions can provide first-class professional Italian translators for all types of commercial and professional transactions, who are experienced in every aspect of business, including financial, legal and marketing texts.
As well as these human professionals, we use Computer Assisted Translation tools which enable editing in most of the common file types and office applications. We offer discounts on the type of texts that are repetitive in nature, and employ term banks to ensure up-to-date accuracy of technical and trade terminology. With regard to the EU regulations governing technical and instruction manuals, such precision is essential for securing your Italian markets.
Professional Spanish translations for your company in San Francisco
San Francisco was, like many other cities in California, founded around a Spanish mission and fort, so Spanish would have been its first language. Still the second-most widely spoken language in the world, Spanish is spoken in so many different countries that the language itself has diversified.
For this reason, we offer specialist translators for both American and European Spanish, as we recognize how important it is to have precise translations for your specific target audience. Our native-speaking translators ensure that any subtle differences between the two language variants are pinpointed in your translation, making your texts absolutely authentic for your prospective customers.
Hungarian Translators for San Francisco
There has been a Hungarian community in San Francisco for well over a hundred years, and many business opportunities exist here. San Francisco and Budapest-based software company Prezi, for example, has a thriving business in the area, and the potential for garnering new business relationships with Hungary can be increased greatly with the translation support provided by Teck Language Solutions.
Hungarian is one of the least common languages of the European Union member states, so our team of native language professional translators offers a range of services to assist companies seeking new business opportunities there, together with all the latest software required to provide faultless translations.
