Encrypted Translation

TBW Global operates the world’s most secure translation workbench, through our patented Highly Secure Translation Editor (HSTE).

Our patented CAT tool is a giant leap forward for file security – restricting linguistics to a secure interface. It prevents third parties from saving, printing or taking screenshots of confidential documents, giving clients peace of mind that their material is in safe hands. Moreover, an innovative auto delete function means documents are permanently erased after translation and therefore irretrievable.

Face to Face Interpreting

TBW Global provides support around the clock in excess of 300 languages and has more than 14,500 linguists situated across the globe. We deploy hundreds of linguists each day for defense assignments in some of the most troubled areas around the world.

We are trusted in providing a high quality of service each time. Our interpreters are available day or night, 365 days a year and can be booked by telephone or via our easy to use and secure online portal.

For peace of mind to our clients, every face-to-face interpreter has passed our rigorous recruitment and security clearance process, which also includes an Enhanced Disclosure and Baring Service check.

We only ever provide qualified linguists, whose skills have been thoroughly assessed and examined during the recruitment process. Employment of a linguist is subject to a signed confidentiality agreement and a comprehensive code of conduct.

I always look forward to the next exercise or rotation [of Civilians on the Battlefield]. It expands and stimulates my life. Sort of like an adventure-survival course. The unknown and the challenges are there, plus a chance to prove myself … The situations we act out are real in many parts of the world. It is fascinating to work with the military and I am trying to figure out the whys or how come strategies are executed in a particular way. Like a gigantic chess game. I would not want to miss it.

have conducted a few observations and have been seeing some quality teaching practice.

Also, we have just enjoyed the second round of learner presentations where we hosted a number of guests from across ITC and beyond. The comments we received were extremely positive, so the teachers must be doing a great job when I’m not sitting in the back of the class, too.

As a fundamental component to the success achieved, the role of the interpreter cannot go unmentioned or underappreciated. Hussain’s fire service knowledge was essential in ensure the correct interpretations were made, tireless efforts and cooperative nature was a great bridge across cultures. Hussain was an essential member of the team and is highly recommended for future interpreter roles.

A heroic effort to get that turned around so quickly, thanks both. 3.5 hours from request to response all in.
