Ubiqus acquires legal and financial translation company

Legal and Financial Translation Specialists 15.1.09

We are pleased to announce that Ubiqus UK has acquired a specialist legal and financial translation company.

The translation company -- serving clients as 101 Business Translation in the UK and as Tectrad in France and Italy -- has a presence in the UK and in France and has been producing translation for law firms and corporations throughout Europe for two decades.

The new acquisition improves Ubiqus's capacity to translate high-risk legal and financial documents, including:
  • M&A documents
  • Contracts
  • Shareholders' agreements
  • Prospectuses
  • Annual reports
  • Financial statements
  • Regulatory statements
  • Corporate communications
101 Business Translation and Tectrad focus on translation of high-risk legal and financial documents. A specialist legal translator first translates the document. Then it is proofread by not one but two editors. Finally, it is typeset in the format required by the client.

The past growth of Tectrad and 101 Business Translation is premised on the fact that no-one can really afford to re-do a bad translation. After all, time is money -- and the time required to correct a poor language translation is considerable. With a strong quality control process supporting specialist translators, Tectrad and 101 Business Translation have been able to meet and surpass customer expectations.

Ubiqus managing director Laurent Decaudaveine said, "Ubiqus is delighted to welcome 101 Business Translation clients. We believe that they will benefit from what we at Ubiqus have to offer -- and we believe that Ubiqus's clients will benefit from the added expertise that 101 Business Translation brings to us."
