Who we are
TRADESENDE is a translation service without the middlemen. We are not a translation agency: we are translators. This benefits translation cost and quality. We offer the most competitive rates on the market because we do not charge for project management. We offer the highest quality because we are directly responsible for our own work.
TRADESENDE's founding members have created an international network of collaborators. Our working method combines the benefits of working with an agency (response capacity) with the advantages of using independent professionals (price/quality).
TRADESENDE's founding members are:
