MONCTON, NB – July 14, 2015 – Business and community leaders gathered at the Capitol Theatre in Moncton July 14 to celebrate the launch of AliancoDirect – a new direct-to-business, one-stop-shop, translation and language service across Atlantic Canada.
AliancoDirect is capitalizing on a significant economic development opportunity as a leader in the translation industry, constantly finding better ways to assist businesses and organizations in Atlantic Canada and beyond with its language services. The organization has done this with its improved customer contact service centre, the extension of its Translation Assistance Program (TAP) and the announcement of an industry first – the AliancoDirect Language Audit Service.
“AliancoDirect works with many highly qualified, highly experienced certified translators from across Atlantic Canada (including two from PEI) and we offer multilingual translations,” said Pauline Roy, president of Alianco. “What makes us unique is our commitment to customer service and to quality control – our intense revision process and our attention to detail. We constantly hear from our clients how much they appreciate the fact that we respect the integrity of their messaging. Precise language translation is crucial to effective communication, but it’s just as important to capture the proper dialect.”
She adds, “This relates very closely to regional economic development as quality translation is vital to those organizations focused on exporting or which need to communicate effectively to multilingual markets. You simply cannot sell into markets that you cannot communicate with effectively.”
Using the AliancoDirect custom-tailored project management system ensures that translation requests are not only accurate, but that the process is smooth and efficient. Part of that process is signing a non-disclosure agreement to ensure the complete confidentiality of client projects.
“Our goal is to be a superior resource to our clients – a one-stop-shop for language services – to help them communicate efficiently, effectively and professionally to their audiences. And, we’re able to do this better than ever with the launch of AliancoDirect – our extensive resource of certified translators, our new direct 1-844-4ALIANC number and online service, as well as our new, free Language Audit Service,” said Micheline Roy, executive director of AliancoDirect. “We also recognize that translation can be a significant investment and that’s why we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to extend the TAP program.”
The new Language Audit Service will help to assess how effective a business’ language services are. The service will be free of charge and clients will be provided with an audit report including recommendations.
The Translation Assistance Program (TAP) has been extended until Sept 30, 2015. The program, which is funded by ACOA, subsidizes translation costs for businesses that meet the criteria. Already, 300 businesses in Atlantic Canada have taken advantage of the program.
Alianco board member Bonnie Gallant, executive director of RDÉE Prince Edward Island, attended Monday’s launch.
