AfroLingo is on The Move!

An Important Announcement: We are Expanding!

The team here at AfroLingo are committed to delivering translation services of the highest possible quality. In addition, in order to continue doing so, there are some big plans afoot – exciting news that we just cannot keep to ourselves any longer.

Therefore – drumroll please – it gives us great pleasure to announce that we will shortly be opening a new office in Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi.

A capital idea

The opening of our new Nairobi office will provide endless advantages for both our company, as well as new and existing clients. For example, we will be able to reach a wider market and you can expect even more of the same high quality translation, interpretation and localization. In addition, with a greater number of professional translators on hand, it will be even easier to achieve your business goals.

From agriculture and education right through to the media and medical industries (and everything in between), we specialize in a broad range of translation services, brought to you by a team of friendly professionals in their native African languages. Opening a new office will enable us to offer you a wider range of possibilities, in languages ranging from Afrikaans to Zulu.

Opening new doors for everyone

As well as the new office in Nairobi, our plan is to expand into more African countries, enabling a wider client base and allowing us to forge valuable new relationships with local businesses – a win-win situation which we’re sure will open doors in many ways.

 

We offer nothing but the best

By expanding. We are also giving more businesses the opportunity to experience our unique way of working. Sure, there might be other African translation companies around that are ready to work with you at the drop of a hat but how many do you know that can offer on-time delivery of work (we never miss a deadline: fact), complete confidentiality, work-class professionalism, fully trained experts in translation, attention to detail and a finger that’s always on the pulse when it comes to new software and technology trends? By choosing AfroLingo, you are choosing the best. We believe Africa deserves the best and that is exactly why we plan to make our presence known throughout the land.

Exciting times ahead

What makes our announcement even more exciting though is the fact that we have experienced huge success in such a short space of time – and by opening new offices, this success will be built on and given the opportunity to flourish in further African countries.

So there you have it! The beans have been spilled, the (big) cat’s out of the bag and it’s time for us to make our debut in Africa’s capital city of Safari, Nairobi. We will be back with news of our subsequent new office plans as soon as they are in place. In the meantime, keep visiting our blog for updates on all the latest news and we look forward to opening our new doors to you very soon.

AfroLingo is delighted to announce that they have gained the prestigious ISO 17100 Certification. A company that aims to become the finest translation and interpretation agency in South Africa, AfroLingo dedicates itself to achieving nothing less than customer satisfaction.

The ISO 17100 Certification affirms that AfroLingo meets the internationally recognized standard that has been set for companies within the translation industry, covering a range of practices that have been deemed fundamental when it comes to providing a translation service. By having this certification, AfroLingo has officially established itself as a high-quality translation company that follows certain steps in order to ensure that the client receives a service that adheres to best practice protocol.

In order to achieve the certification, AfroLingo had to meet certain criteria and follow three steps:

The company was given a rundown of areas where they don’t comply, as well as recommendations in order to improve and meet these requirements.

2-   Writing of Documentation

The company then has documentation compiled in which non-negotiable procedures are outlined and teamed up with current business procedures.

3-   Presentation of Certification

Once the requirements laid out were met, documentation and certification is then granted.

Business Development manager Ahmed Hamdy said: “We have prided ourselves on our premium service that we offer, and gaining this certification has not only given us a more reputable and prestigious accreditation, but helped to affirm that we were operating at a very high-standard. “We are very proud that we can say we have the ISO 17100 Certification and hope it helps clients to instil even more trust into AfroLingo by knowing we are recognised internationally as leading translation service providers.”
