TERMINOLOGY & GLOSSARIES
For every field, and every time that a Client submits a consultancy request for the first time, a glossary is prepared with the help of experts in the Client’s field and research into the countries of destination. The glossaries, personalised for each Client and updated and developed with each new activity, together with the translated documents, constitute an archival patrimony for the Client, available for every new job, of whatever type and size.
