Sustainability Translation Services
Sustainability decision-making criteria and reporting have evolved significantly over the last 20 years. It started with companies developing criteria to make environmentally sound decisions and reporting on the risks faced and activities undertaken to mitigate these risks both internally and externally. This evolved into sustainable development and corporate social responsibility, as companies shared what they were doing to obtain and maintain their “social licence to operate” in the communities and countries where they worked. This has now evolved into ESG reporting expectations of investors and government regulators.
Today, the demands and expectations for good sustainability reporting are continually increasing. The key to meeting these expectations is communicating with the stakeholders in their own language. Companies need to clearly communicate their goals and progress towards achieving them.
AZ World’s team has over 25 years of experience in sustainability translation and localization of documents related to environmental management, sustainable development, and governance activities in several different industry segments. Our work recognizes and respects the cultural, social, religious, and political environments for each document’s intended audience in order to “bridge the language divide around the world”.
AZ World provides a broad range of translation services, including technical sustainability translations of environmental impact assessments and sustainable development reports for domestic, multinational and global companies.
AZ World strives for quality results. We accomplish this by only utilizing the services of highly-qualified bilingual and bi-cultural, professional linguists who are native-speaking certified translators, editors/proofreaders, and technical editors of the target language for each sustainability translation. AZ World utilizes their knowledge of the language and subject matter expertise to produce the highest-quality translations.
Each sustainability translation project is localized to the region and the intended audience, conforming linguistically, culturally and accurately. Localization is the key to a high-quality translation and is essential for its success in “bridging the language divide around the world”.
Our sustainability translation services are further enhanced by our use of specialized translation software that incorporates a “translation memory”. Unique to each client, this memory is continually updated according to the client’s needs, and the unique characteristics of each project. Each project is therefore customized, comprehensive and complete. Consistency of style, lexicon, sentence structure and details are maintained from project to project, reducing costs and increasing the quality of each translation project.
Good orthography and grammar are elements that cannot be overlooked or considered lightly when a company’s reputation is at stake. At AZ World, we understand this and make it our mission to provide you with the most effective and efficient translation services possible.
