Despite a year fraught with difficulty, we have managed to achieve our pre-set goals while offering service that is always punctual and efficient. Resilient, ever ready to tackle new challenges and a constant workflow, just as in 2020, we have maintained a high position in the European industry ranking.
Again in 2021, CSA Research has included Arkadia among the top 20 translation agencies of southern Europe. This is an extremely important and prestigious recognition, which confirms the strong and established synergy between our team and clients who choose to use our services.
The CSA Research team (CSA, acronym of Common Sense Advisory) uses established methods to guarantee research figures that are totally independent and reliable about suppliers of language services, technology, global businesses and investors. CSA publishes updated reports and compiles a classification of the most technological and efficient language service providers.
The ranking of top language service providers, put together by CSA, is based on data of 2020. The CSA Research team analyses and processes the data collected. For the past 17 years, the researchers have studied the language sector, and Arkadia figures among the top 20 in this field, a positioning which makes us particularly proud of the work carried out by our team.
Arkadia has served as a point of reference in the world of translation/interpreting in all global languages since 1999: more than twenty years of success, with the awareness that ‘usability’ of content is essential in any social or professional context.
From 1999 to the present day, the translation sector has changed radically: the global digital transformation has allowed us to satisfy (according to our full potential) the requests made by companies and organisations worldwide, improving the experience of customers and interlocutors, promptly responding to the communicative needs of a world which is increasingly globalised. Words Connecting Worlds is not a mere advertising slogan; it is a philosophy in which we truly believe.
Over the past year, we have seen an increase in the demand for translation in the legal and financial fields, thanks to our team’s transversal skills and strong translation experience in these two sectors. A financial report, for example, is a highly sensitive and complex process for a company, subject to very specific and rigid rules. For this reason, when a document of this type is being drafted, edited or translated, there is no room for error and/or inaccuracies.
A financial report is always deposited with the national business register in whichever country the company is based, but the document must also be completely accessible to foreign investors or bankers. This is why it is not enough to simply translate a text; it is also necessary to be well prepared and experienced in legal and financial fields.
As we open up to the global market, more and more Italian companies need perfect translations or edits of corporate governance documents in order to improve their transparency towards Italian and foreign investors; it is clear that an investor is more likely to finance a project submitted by a well-managed company.
The Italian businesses, multinationals, and companies listed on the Stock Exchange which have chosen Arkadia to assist them with services of this type have all been fully satisfied in their requirements for clarity, legality and maximum transparency; this is why today we provide translations for 70% of FTSE companies in the Italian Stock Exchange.
In 2015, Arkadia opened a new office in Brussels, the heart of the EU institutions. The increase in human resources, technology used and participation of specialists in the fields of legal and financial translations has driven the huge impetus towards Arkadia’s development and expansion.
The future is full of challenges: this is why it is essential today to have highly skilled communicators and translators by your side to support you.
