5 Reasons Why Bureau Works Is a Perfect Translation Backup Provider

You may already have a trusted translation provider you work with. We get it. However, just like having a generator in case of a power outage can come in handy, having a backup translation provider can be a smart choice too.

There are 5 main reasons why Bureau Works is such a great option as your provider for a rainy day.

Old School x Translation Platform

Reason # 1 - Other than the quotes you approve, it’s FREE!

This reason kind of speaks for itself. There are no hidden fees for platform access. You can quote as much as you would like and you will only pay for the projects that you sign off on.


With every change you make, with every term you add, we learn.

Reason # 2 - Quotes are ridiculously fast, nearly instant, to be accurate!

Bureau Works provides instant quotes in over 22 file extensions (To read more on the file extensions we support for instant quoting, click here). This means you don’t have to exchange two or three emails and then wait sometimes more than a day to hear back from your Project Manager. Knowing instantly how much your project will cost you saves you precious time and makes it easy to make quick and smart business decisions.

Create projects through our online templates or connectors.

Reason # 3 - It’s cost-effective and a great sanity check

Translations can become very expensive as you add content and languages to the mix. If you are in doubt about whether or trusted provider is quoting in the most effective way and want to have additional data points to make sure that what you are seeing is reasonable and fair, all the more reason to upload your files to our platform and instantly check whether the price and the turnaround time makes sense. At best, you’ll be able to make a better decision on which conditions best fit your needs. At worst, you’ll know that your trusted provider is fast, cost-effective, and reliable.

Never pay twice for the same string.

Reason # 4 - It’s easy to setup

Upload your Translation Memories and glossaries easily into our platform and download them at any time. This will ensure that our quotes leverage all your past translations stored in your translation memory and also will ensure that our linguists will adhere to the terminology that makes sense for your brand.

Leverage our online editor for in-country review or post-delivery changes.

Reason # 5 - It can enable things you haven’t imagined before
