Nuestra historia

Fundada en 1999 en Easton, Pennsylvania, FCI - The Language Experts, es una pequeña empresa propiedad de mujeres orientada a atender las necesidades lingüísticas de clientes comerciales, gubernamentales y particulares de todo el mundo. FCI se creó tras observar la necesidad de aumentar y mejorar la comunicación. Tanto a nivel local como mundial, acercar a las personas de diferentes culturas y lenguas es una necesidad constante. Aunque vivan cerca, la distancia entre los individuos puede ser grande debido a la diversidad de orígenes lingüísticos y otras diferencias. Desde la fundación de FCI hace dos décadas, se ha establecido un proceso exclusivo de varios pasos diseñado para satisfacer las necesidades de nuestras comunidades y garantizar soluciones de traducción y localización accesibles y de la más alta calidad para todos.

Visión

Imaginamos un mundo en el que las diferencias culturales se celebren y valoren, y funcionemos como la amalgama que mantiene unida a la humanidad y el nexo que posibilite la comunicación.

Misión

Nos esforzamos por romper las barreras lingüísticas y crear la oportunidad de compartir la cultura y la comunicación a nivel mundial, independientemente del idioma o la procedencia.

Valores

Valoramos la diversidad, el trabajo en equipo, el intercambio cultural, la atención al cliente, las soluciones innovadoras, el crecimiento y los resultados de alta calidad.

Por qué lo hacemos

El arte de la traducción se utiliza para diferentes propósitos comunes a todos los sectores en todo el mundo. Entre los materiales que se traducen habitualmente se encuentran obras literarias, documentos jurídicos, historias clínicas, formularios empresariales, anuncios, cartas, documentos personales y mucho más. Debido a la existencia de más de 6000 lenguas, desde las vivas hasta las moribundas —así como los numerosos estados y niveles de vitalidad intermedios—, en combinación con cientos de dialectos y variaciones, los servicios de traducción son esenciales para permitir una comunicación y un entendimiento eficaces e inclusivos entre personas, países y culturas.

Nuestros servicios de traducción realizados por personas garantizan la autenticidad y prometen resultados completos y exhaustivos. No solo permitimos que las palabras se transfieran de una lengua a otra, sino que brindamos la posibilidad de compartir la cultura a nivel mundial.

Si necesita traducción de documentos, transcripción, traducción o grabación de audio o video, transcreación, localización, interpretación, revisión o corrección, o algo que no figure en esta lista, complete el formulario de nuestra página de contacto y nuestro equipo de soluciones le ayudará con todo gusto.
