ASCA Value

We partner with doctors and researchers who help us hone our expertise, by supplying us with the most up-to-date information so that the desires of our clients and the demands of competitive markets are fully satisfied. We spare no effort to improve our knowledge and skill base, and we take advantage of the synergy achieved among our scientific translation and documentation projects, to increase our capacity to handle ever broader domains in these fields.

Quality Assurance

ASCA relies on its own in-house system of quality control. Our meticulousness is comprehensive. We use specialized checklists to cross-check translated documents for omissions or errors and ensure appropriate use of terminology and consistency of wording, as well as proper integration of display rules and styles. Additional customized Quality Control is made to certain projects to provide total and continuous quality upgrades.

Reliable Teamwork

ASCA nurtures a wealth of enthusiastic human resources: translators, writers, linguists and proofreaders (including native English speakers), as well as DTP operators. The project manager (PM) leads and coordinates the various teams of translators, writers, and linguists, to optimize the quality of the important documents entrusted to us by our clients, so that maximum benefit is reliably delivered.
