The United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) coordinates the UN's environmental actions, promoting sustainable advances for the global environment, particularly in developing countries. Its prominent roles include assessing ecological conditions and trends in different regions. Today Translations is a long-standing provider of translation services for the UNEP and their sister initiative, The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB).
Today Translations commissioned to translate the Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity for Local and Regional Policy Makers report, one of the most significant UN-backed environmental statements of the last decade. The report, which spans hundreds of thousands of words, needed to be translated into Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish. Because, as the title suggests, this was to distributing among leading policymakers, quality and timely delivery were of the highest order.
Today Translations brought together a pool of 15 different professional translators, proofreaders and typesetters. At the same time, some linguists were using as possible to keep client costs as low as possible. However, this meant that the final translated products (typesetting included) were delivering two months later.
Our project management and accounts team were more or less in constant communication with the client and the translators throughout the project's scope.
All translations were fully typeset and delivered on time and to the clients satisfaction. Since then, Today Translations has been assigning several further publications for translation.
