On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR (UE) 2016/679] came into effect, and Arkadia Translations was certainly not caught unprepared. To tackle the ever-increasing requests to translate documents relating to this regulation’s scope of application, Arkadia has decided to assist its clients with a team of translators specialising in privacy, in order to make the jump into the era of transparency in digitalisation as painless as possible.
But we are getting ahead of ourselves: what is the GDPR, and who does it apply to?
The new personal data protection regulation aims to strengthen and harmonise data protection for citizens and residents in the European Union, offering greater protection to natural persons and making businesses more accountable for the use of personal data.
Data protection occupies a frontline position in company processes, having a significant impact on managing the personal information of clients, suppliers, partners and also employees.
The Regulation not only applies to large companies (social network platforms, multinationals, the public sector and those in the banking and insurance world), but also small and medium-sized enterprises that in recent years, thanks to the dramatic cut in technology costs, have begun to process and often create profiles from large quantities of data.
Arkadia Translations, a translation and interpreting company with UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 certification that specialises in legal, financial, marketing and corporate fields, has launched a resource selection, sector specialisation and innovation process for its own technologically advanced and assisted translation systems for translating documents relating to privacy, company law, technical and procedural matters, computer security, lead generation and the employment law sector. Arkadia translates on a daily basis in all official EU languages, as well as in the major non-European languages.
To internationalise your processes in accordance with the GDPR, or simply for further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
