Singapore, 17th April 2018 – In late 2017, LTi was invited by the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) to participate in a tender to be part of the Framework agreement for Translation Services for the whole of Singapore government.
The aim of the tender is to select qualified translation vendors based on a set of criteria set by MCI in consultation with the National Translation Committee for the purpose of providing improved translation quality procured by government agencies here in Singapore.
The requirement for the tender entails that the vendors have trained translators and vetters in English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil with relevant working experience. These translators and vetters must also be familiar with the language as used in local context, culture and customs.
To be part of this framework, potential translation vendors are evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Quality of work submitted. This includes knowledge of local context, accuracy, grammar & style and, last but not least attention to details.
- Track record and references (Punctuality, responsiveness, thoroughness and initiative)
- Price Competitiveness
After a meticulous round of evaluation, Lingua Technologies International was awarded the contract in early 2018. Since the award of the tender, Lingua Technologies International has provided translation, vetting and transcription services to the various government agencies such as Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners Board (TCMPB), Casino Regulatory Authority (CRA), Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC), Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Building and Construction Authority (BCA), National Environment Agency (NEA), Central Narcotics Bureau of Singapore (CNB) and more.
This is an official endorsement of the translation standard and quality that Lingua Technologies International has been delivering for the past two decades.
Lingua Technologies International staunch adherence to global translation standards since it’s inception in 1996 has brought success for the company and its good reputation that has spread beyond the shores of Singapore.
