How does 1TL work?

1TL is a 24/7 online translation agency. Our innovative system enables us to provide both customers and translators with a more transparent and flexible service. We emphasize three main criteria: quality, speed and cost efficiency.

The translation process begins as soon as the customer places the order. As soon as the order is activated, a suitably qualified, available translator accepts the assignment and proceeds to translate. Our online software means that the customer can track the progress of the translation.

After the translation, if the customer opts to have the text proofread, it is passed onto a senior translator who checks the text for errors and makes any necessary corrections. After the proofreading phase, the document is passed onto quality control where the final checks are carried out. If we are satisfied that the translation meets our quality standards, it is delivered to the customer.


1TL is operated by 1TL Translators Inc.
