My name is Ronald To and I am the Associate Director (Vendor Relationship and Quality) of an LSP based in Hong Kong called Mind Your Language (MYL). We are currently looking for English to Simplified Chinese Translators for a large project from one of our Financial Client. Please kindly see the information for this project below and let me know if you are interested to work with us.
Client Background: Our client is a global leader in producing equity and fund research and is looking to expand their presence in Asia by providing translation of select equity research reports.
Project Background: The Client produces research reports on a large number of stocks globally. Their analysts produce the reports in English a day or two after the company reports earnings and the requirement is for select reports to be translated in Simplified Chinese within 1-2 working days after the English.
Volume and Turnaround Time Requirements: We are currently producing 100 reports per quarter or just under 100,000 words of translation per quarter. The Client is expecting reports to be returned in 1-2 working days after receipt (i.e. a report picked up at 9am on Monday would be returned by 9am or 5pm on Tuesday). We are looking for more than one vendor/translator to do this project.
We are trying to look for vendor/translator who is able to:
. Deliver 2K+ words within one working day without advance notice (first choice)
. Deliver 3,000 to 4,000 words in 2 working days without advance notice (second choice if the vendor/translator not able to deliver 2K+ words in one working day)
. Must be able to apply a TM and TB
. Updating the TM and TB is not essential, we will provide updated resources at regular intervals
