Rosetta Translation Shanghai, First Foreign-owned Shanghai Translation Agency Celebrates Third Anniversary

Share Article

When Rosetta Translation Shanghai started its operations in 2008, it was the first wholly foreign-owned translation agency in the city. It is now celebrating its third anniversary, and going from strength to strength.

Rosetta Translation (Shanghai) Limited, the first wholly foreign-owned translation agency in Shanghai, is celebrating its third anniversary this year and is going from strength to strength.

Today, the Shanghai office of Rosetta Translation can look back on three increasingly successful years, with rapidly increasing turnover and a fast-growing base of satisfied customers. Jo Liu, manager of the Shanghai office, proudly explains that “the secret of our success, and the way we distinguish ourselves from our local competitors, is very simple: we deliver the consistent quality of translations and level of customer service that multinationals are used to from Western translation agencies.”

Eric Fixmer, managing director of Rosetta Translation, the parent company, remembers how “at the start, the majority of our customers were other foreign-owned companies. In many cases, their headquarters were already loyal customers of our translation and interpreting services, and as a consequence they needed little persuasion to also use our services here in Shanghai.

The most exciting development has been with local companies. We have won over an increasing number of them, because we have gradually managed to convince them that our higher quality translation services are in fact a good investment for them to make. It can translate directly into the bottom line, for example because professional foreign language marketing material makes a much better impression.”

Unsurprisingly, the majority of Rosetta Shanghai’s assignments are in English-Chinese and Chinese-English translation, and a substantial part of work can be described as technical translation, such as the translation of technical documentation or user manuals.

Rosetta Shanghai also has a successful interpreting department, providing interpreting services throughout China and beyond. One of its key advantages over local translation agencies lies in the provision of quality translation services between European languages, such as between English and for example, French, German or Spanish. For these types of translations, it benefits greatly from the extensive expertise of the company’s London headquarters.
