The demand for talented linguists has never been greater than it is right now. 21st-century transportation and communication links have increased the reach and ambition of British businesses. We can now travel to any part of the world in less than a day, and communicate with anyone, anywhere, almost instantaneously. The result is that even small enterprises are exporting their products and creating international links that allow them to grow their businesses overseas.
The language barrier is one of the few problems technology is yet to solve. Yes, you can put a sentence or two into Google translate and send a message around the world, but how much confidence can you really have in a system that does not account for the syntax or nuances of language? A Chinese furniture manufacturer trusted such software to translate the labels on its products from Chinese to English, and inadvertently created the first ever leather sofa to contain a racial slur!
The solution is to hire talented linguists so you can enter new markets with confidence, and that’s where we can help!
Your Next Great Language Job…
Identifying, screening and hiring applicants with the linguistic skills businesses need to succeed overseas can be a challenge for conventional recruiters. Many corporate recruiters lack the linguistic expertise and experience they need to assess the skills of the applicants they are placing. The result can be marketing messages, website copy, product descriptions and corporate communications that lack the clarity and concision you need.
The truth is, to be completely confident in a candidate’s language skills, you have to be a linguist yourself. At Linguistica Recruitment, all our candidates undergo comprehensive written and spoken language tests to make sure their language skills (both English and their second language) are up to the job.
This approach has created an enviable track record of placing talented multilingual staff in a diverse range of marketing, communications, customer services, interpreting, logistics, legal, market research and finance roles. And now we’re ready to help you.
