Job Description

OUR STORY

First established in 2015 in the United Kingdom, Pursuit Translations GmbH has won the trust of businesses and organisations throughout Europe (Puma, Publicis, Sub Sports) and the United States (Google, Amazon).

OUR VISION

Translation is one of the oldest and most far-reaching industries in the world. It is dynamic, progressive, and extremely competitive.

For Pursuit, translation is not a mathematical equation. It is an art-form; the recreation of a text in another language requires perfect mastery of the mother tongue and a deep understanding of the second language. We undertake thorough research and meticulous terminology analyses, always in the pursuit of excellence.

OUR STRATEGY

The world has never been smaller. An estimated 3.2 billion people connect and trade with each other via the internet, rendering the need for translation greater than ever.

We combine an ancient industry with modern technology, in order to provide our clients with the highest quality work in a timely fashion.

Our pursuit of excellence means integrated streamlining technology, which includes accessible training for linguists, efficient project management, and straightforward communication within our language teams.
