“We have partnered with Sandberg for over ten years. When we first introduced memoQ, Sandberg were an exciting, independently-thinking company innovating ways for a translation production company to benefit from technology. Whilst many LSPs would use whatever technology their customers suggested, Sandberg made extensive use of memoQ’s APIs to integrate our tool with their own Nexus system, creating an infrastructure that provides automation not only in project management but also for data/resource management. And the interesting thing is that their fresh attitude to new technology is still there today. Sandberg as a company gives a lot back to the translation industry e.g. via their involvement in standards development, and we at memoQ are very honoured to be working with them.”
Peter Reynolds, Member of Board, memoQ Translation Technologies
“I have worked as a freelancer for Sandberg since 2006 and have witnessed first hand how the company has expanded and taken on new technologies and approaches.
I have always enjoyed working for them: the PMs are very responsive and friendly, and you are given the room and tools to develop your skills as a translator. The amount of language and technology support available is far superior to anything I have experienced elsewhere. The company always pays on time and rarely haggles on rates once these have been set.
One of the more recent changes is the use of MT. The current MT engines are pretty refined, which means post-editing can be as enjoyable as translating. Despite all the changes in the last 12 years, the company is still great to work for and has not lost the personal but expert touch which really set it apart when I started.”

“The Master’s Programme in Translation and Interpreting at the University of Helsinki has worked together with Sandberg Translation Partners Ltd since 2013. This partnership helps us bridge the gap between academic education and the commercial world and provides our students with access to internships and first-rate knowledge of the translation industry. The collaboration began with a project management workshop and has evolved into a five-credit, three-week Introduction to the Translation Industry course, an invaluable part of our vocational module. Sandberg’s willingness to openly share their knowledge and best practices with our students is really remarkable. In addition to partaking in the teaching, we also value Sandberg’s role in providing our recent graduates with quick access to employment in the field. We look forward to continuing this academic collaboration, improving the module with each iteration.”
