This is our “two pair of eyes” option. It adds an additional safety net to those specially complex or sensitive texts by involving the use of two linguists. If you’re worried that your translation isn’t being checked by anyone on your side, choose this option – we translate, review with a second linguist and then perform an internal QA check before the document reaches you.
