We enjoy working with all our translators and endeavor to provide them with a wonderful and fulfilling work experience. Here is what some of our translators have to say about their experience working with us.
Working with Ulatus has brought me to discover very interesting authors and get insights into current academic textx and approaches. Payments are regularly made and there is always someone ready to answer my queries as I work for technical or other issues. I am generally very satisfied of this collaboration.
It has been a pleasure to work with Ulatus for more than a year. I truely appreciate the way they treat their translators. Professionalism is what I perfectly see in this company. I usually receive good amonut of work every month and the payments are made timely. You feel like all the staff recognize and respect you. I have also got great feedback so I could improved my skills tremendously. The most interesting part is that all the projects cover my expertise (also interest) areas. I am really honored to have the opportunity to work with Ulatus as a freelance translator.
Working for ULATUS has been a unique and highly rewarding experience. I´ve been with them as a freelance En >< Sp Remote Simultaneous Interpreter since 2020, and it´s been one of the best opportunities I´ve ever had interpreting for international agencies. All my assignments are very well scheduled and organized by the amazing team of Project Managers and Accounting group of professionals at ULATUS. Besides this, they have given me the great opportunity to share the translation booth with an extraordinary world class interpreter and we have become not only a great team, but also excellent friends. Thank you ULATUS… It's an honor and a pleasure to be part of the ULATUS family!
I have been working as an Interpreter for Ulatus since 2021, and I think it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. The team that assigns the events is great, very organized and always trying to make sure that the interpreters have the material available and on time. Ulatus has given me the opportunity to participate in events of great importance in the socio-economic field. With them I have interpreted for prestigious international agencies. In addition, I have had the luck to meet a professional with an outstanding career, who has become not only my booth partner in most events, but also my friend. Grateful and happy to belong to the Ulatus family.
I have been working with Ulatus for over one year. They have a streamlined system for assigning projects and processing payments. Another plus is the steady flow of work in the field of expertise chosen by the translator. I look forward to working with them for many years to come.

I love translating for Ulatus. Their systems for assigning/delivering projects are very simple and efficient, as is the payment and invoicing method. The content of the texts is usually very interesting, and I have been receiving constant work for quite some time now. Also, the project management team is very friendly and helpful, they always answer any questions I may have promptly. Overall, it is a great experience.
I have been working with Ulatus about five years. As a freelance translator, I believe Ulatus is a quite professional translation company, whose staff members are good in communication with the translators. I can be given enough support and detailed explanation whenever I have queries. Their staff are friendly and efficient and they provide me with the necessary information for my finishing the assignment. I have received monthly newsletters which are very informative about translation. The important is their payment for translation fee is made on time. I am enjoying working with Ulatus and I wish I can receive more assignments from Ulatus and hope to maintain our business relationship.
It is a great pleasure working with Ulatus. The Project Management Team is very helpful when making scheduling arrangements, and they are quick to respond when I have questions or encounter a problem. At this point, I have been working for Ulatus for ten months. In this time, I have been assigned a steady amount of work in my area of expertise, payments have been on schedule, and I have developed my translation skills and knowledge, both through the work I do and the online seminars the company provides. Also, I feel respected and heard when voicing my opinions regarding work experiences through surveys. I hope to continue working with Ulatus for many years to come.

Sworn Translator, Two-year Graduate Degree in English, 3+ years Exp.
I'm generally very pleased to work with Ulatus. The Project Management Team is very understanding when rearranging deadlines or delivering the file to another linguist. Communication is very straightforward and I believe that's the key for a good working environment. Regarding payment, I've always received payment on time and this is very important to mention because as a Freelancer working on the other side of the globe it's very difficult to trust at first. But after almost four years working with Ulatus I feel calm because I know I can trust them on that aspect.
BA Hons Spanish and European Studies with Translation Studies, 15+ years Exp.
I like the simplicity of working with them. Too many organisations complicate things with project platforms and invoice platforms which causes delays and frustration. I like that Ulatus keeps things simple and professional I know what to expect from them.
Bachelor's degree in technical, scientific and literary translation, 3+ years Exp.
Ulatus has set up a team of highly professional linguists. I've been working with Ulatus for 3 years now, and it's a pleasure to work with them. Communication is always polite and dynamic, and the project managers are always there to answer our questions. I always receive a consistent amount of work which matches my areas of expertise (and interest as well).
Bachelor's degree in marketing, Master’s Degree in TESOL, 8+ years Exp.
Working with Ulatus is a pleasure. The company management always conducts itself with the utmost professionalism. The project managers are polite, courteous and highly responsive to any issues that may arise within the course of a translation project, which is very valuable in this industry. The company has tremendous quality control and really cares about delivering a quality product. The payment system is consistent and punctual, so you never have to worry about getting paid. But the best thing about Ulatus is the steady stream of work. They do their absolute best to make sure that all their translators receive consistent projects to work on. At Ulatus it's a family environment, and this makes for a tremendous partnership.
B.A. Degree in English, 3+ years Exp.
As a long-time employee of Ulatus, what I feel most about our company is its stability. I am a single mother. Divorce came with family accidents, my parents and close relatives passed away one after another. I had to bring up the baby totally alone all by myself. It was impossible for me for the first three years after she was born. Housework already gave me sleepless nights. I couldn't work at all. Despite of Ulatus’s generous salary, steady stream of assignments and ample delivery time, it was just impossible for me to go back to work. I vanished. I thought my career was over. A job performance like mine is grounds for firing in most companies. But to my greatest surprise, during my three years’ absence without explanation, my colleagues sent me one email per month asking my availability to work. For three years without fail, they sent me well-wishes every holiday. Not only that, three years later, as soon as I was able to resume work I asked my manager for a salary increase. He readily agreed. During the years when I was unable to work and had no income, this kind of persistence and unfailing support from Ulatus was the greatest spiritual comfort and the best humanitarian aid I ever received. Now that my child is six years old, she is healthy and happy, I can easily work from home while taking care of her. Looking back, I am always grateful to Ulatus. I will definitely provide the best translation service and repay my company with the best loyalty.
Bachelors in English language, 3+ years Exp.

I look forward to working with Ulatus for many years to come.

Bachelor of English Literature, 5 years Exp.
I want to share my experience with the Ulatus team. I have been working as an “in-house” translator for over 10 years; therefore, in a way I can say that I am an experienced translator. However, to tell you the truth, as most in-house translators know, one is exempted from the severe and serious environment which almost every freelancer faces. However, for a couple of reasons, I decided to work as a freelancer. Recently, thanks to the luck, I have several regular clients, including Ulatus. The job requirements are different from the in-house job. Actually, I’m still in the process of managing multiple jobs when I’m doing the task they offer me

The payment process is easy to follow and efficient, and the feedback provided by them helps me grow as a translator. I look forward to working with Ulatus for many years to come.

I have been working on a large amount of translation assignments with ULATUS for many years, taking a stance of placing importance on what an author is trying to speak. It goes without saying that we, translators, have to translate original languages into their corresponding target languages taking the background information into consideration so that readers may easily understand the contents. However, it is very difficult for us to translate original manuscripts just as intended by the authors. To address this issue, I make efforts to examine information related to the manuscripts wherever possible. Both ULATUS and the clients are willing to cooperate with my efforts, which provides me with the working environment best suited for translation. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to ULATUS and the clients for many kind considerations.
Great agency, Kind PM, On-time payment. I would be delighted to work again with them.
I have been a member of the Ulatus translation team over a number of years. The team here at Ulatus is highly efficient, streamlined, and dedicated to customer satisfaction. The project management team coordinates closely with each translator in their respective field of expertise, and all stakeholders work seamlessly in providing a quality work product on a consistent basis. I highly value the Ulatus team as well as my longtime experience with the team thus far.
I started working with Ulatus in 2020. As I am a biologist with a master's degree in biochemistry, the assignments I receive are related to my field of expertise, which not only makes my work exciting but also guarantees the production of a good translation product. In addition, everything works smoothly with every team in Ulatus. Communication is easy; project managers are really nice, efficient and always willing to help; payments are made on time; constant evaluation and the offer of webinars in different areas contribute to our growth as linguists. I really enjoy working with Ulatus!
I have worked in a project with Ulatus and it has been a pleasure. The project perfectly matched my areas of expertise and I felt very comfortable with the subject. The PMs and everyone working in Ulatus were very helpful and respectful. I always received feedback from them and I think that is something very valuable. I would really like to continue working with Ulatus in the future!
As a new starter in this industry, I realized that there were two issues that I felt discouraged and demoralized about when dealing with LSPs: "rejection" email and "one-sided communication" without knowing the linguists' workload and schedule.
Nothing is more demotivating than the inconsiderable and "dry" rejection emails. Because simply, the email is saying that "You are not good enough" after completing lengthy education and training. If the reason for rejection is simple spelling and grammar errors, it is evident that the candidates are not good enough. However, there are no significant errors, but those candidates are rejected without reason or explanation. Some LSPs kindly provide feedback so we can learn and improve our skills, but not many LSPs allow us to discuss and present our reasons for styles and word choices. Nonetheless But Ulatus does. I still remember the email from the QM team about the translation test done:
"Feedback sharing is a two-way process, where you have equal rights to defend the work done by you in case you don't agree with the client's comments."
Mossop et al. (2020) also addressed that when revisions are done for the contractors, feedback will help them avoid errors in the future, and the revisor helps translators achieve acceptable quality. If the applicant is given no input or opportunity to discuss, the consequence is to leave a bitter experience of rejection, and any chance for improvement is merely abandoned. Ulatus demonstrated the value of feedback and promoted two-way communication to look after both client and linguist, encouraging further growth and improvement as a professional translator.
During the review process of the translation test initiated by the client, Ulatus did not simply present test results and feedback. But they encourage me to review, reflect and defend if my choice is warranted. From this experience, I could check my strengths and weaknesses to understand better how and what I need to improve in future training and practice. I did not feel rejected, yet gain more confidence and motivation. Ulatus demonstrated the value of feedback and promoted two-way communication to look after both client and linguist, encouraging further growth and improvement as a professional translator.
Most LSPs send jobs via email without knowing our availability. Indeed, we can say, "Unfortunately, I am not available". However, it does not mean we are always available; I feel this wastes time and resources on both sides. Ulatus checks the availability monthly and ensures the contractor's workload and schedule. Nevertheless, most freelancers have more flexible working hours than in-house translators. We have other commitments within our professional capacity and private life. And Ulatus only assign accordingly to the schedule determined and acknowledged by both parties by the monthly survey. Because of this small communication enable us to schedule assignment better, and keep an optimal work-and-life balance.
Building a relationship between LSP and the contractor is paramount to delivering quality work and making a win-win relationship. As a freelancer, we are constantly seeking longer commitments and relationships. Ulatus genuinely understands the value of a good relationship because they understand what looking after contract means and what exactly LSP and the contractor need to do. I am still new to this industry and a newbie in the Ulatus family. However, there are several reasons why they became one of the global leaders of the language solution industry; One of the most significant ones is they understand how to look after the contractor and are fully aware of their care's value and positive consequences.

The communication was always clear and polite and I really appreciate that. It is one of the companies I am most proud of working for.
I always find Ulatus project managers to be polite, timely, and kind in their communications with me. It's a pleasure to work with them.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ulatus for about a decade and in that time I’ve worked with a handful of project managers who have all been consistently supportive and wonderful to work with. Ulatus has a strong and diverse client base and I love the linguistic challenges in translating within my area of expertise. I look forward to continue working with Ulatus for many years to come.

I worked just a few times in interpreting assignments with ULATUS and I’d love to work more frequently with you.
I've been working with numerous translation agencies worldwide for over 20 years, and with Ulatus for several years now. What I appreciate most about Ulatus is that it strives to meet not only client satisfaction (which obviously all translation agencies do) but it also seeks to make sure that those working with Ulatus feel appreciated, assisted if necessary and correctly retributed. No mean feat, considering that the vast majority of agencies give priority exclusively to clients. A win-win situation that makes Ulatus a successful, professional and highly reliable company...
I have been working with Ulatus for more than 4 years. As times goes by, the number of projects have been increasing, which proves a great confidence in my work, my compliance with deadlines and my commitment. The PMs have always been very kind, always willing to assist and be there for me. The company has evolved, and is now working on new platforms and with CAT tools that ensure uniformity and excellence in quality. Payments are always on time, which helps me plan my finances in advance. I am very grateful to be part of the Ulatus' community of linguists.

Thanks to Ulatus providing me with a steady stream of work, I have had many opportunities to improve my skills and grow as a freelance translator. Whenever I have any questions, they answer quickly and are very professional and flexible. Their system of assigning jobs is efficient, and they are reliable in their payments."

Ulatus has reasonable and flexible deadlines. Ulatus provided excellent support. Ulatus paid on time and in full. Ulatus has professional, friendly, understanding and honest project managers. I have been working with Ulatus continuously for over three years. Ulatus can best be characterized, in my opinion, by the professional manner of its staff, or managers… quick response, clear communications, rigid project control (with flexibility, where needed), and most of all, their candid and accessible characters. Our relationship is a good example of building a trust in-between through professional communication despite the fact that we are physically thousands of kilometres away from each other.

Working for Ulatus has been a wonderful and rewarding experience from day one. The professional, process-oriented approach to achieving quality translation at Ulatus resonates with my individual approach to translation and the feedback provided has helped me hone my translation skills. The project management team is accommodating and open to suggestions, always willing to provide prompt and timely support whenever required. There is a regular flow of assignments and payments are always on time. I look forward to continue working with Ulatus and contribute to the challenging task of contextually accurate transfer of meaning.

I have been very impressed with the degree of professionalism shown in all communications with the staff of Crimson Interactive Pvt. Ltd. (Ulatus). They have always been prompt and courteous in their replies. I have been offered a large volume of translation assignments spanning a variety of fields. While existing obligations have prevented me from accepting some of these assignments, I look forward to working with Crimson Interactive Pvt. Ltd. (UIatus) in the future.

Although it has been just over two months, I enjoy working with the Ulatus team in India. The Ulatus team in India is very professional, particularly, in terms of communication. Their requests are clear, and they provide prompt responses; for example, in cases of cancellation of assignments, which is very crucial. I am very impressed with their systematic procedures for delivery, feedback, and payment as a whole.

I am a translation checker for Ulatus and would like to say that overall I am impressed with the high degree of professionalism and courtesy that Ulatus brings to the freelance marketplace. My on-boarding process was very organized. Assignments are in-tune with my area of specialization. Feedback is quick and clear. And the flexibility is particularly helpful for people like me who juggle multiple projects. I never felt an assignment being pushed on me; if scheduling doesn’t allow me to take on a task I just tell the team and it’s sourced to someone else of equal capability, no muss no fuss. With Ulatus, you feel like you’re working “with” them, not “for” them.

Ulatus is one of the leading translation companies in India and Japan. They have regularly offered me translation opportunities. However, I decline taking up work if I’m busy, and they do not push me further. Once I take up work, they promptly reply to any query I have regarding the assignment. Thus, it is a pleasure to work with them. They have always obeyed the payment schedule agreed between us. There is no delay and my payment is credited to my bank account in Japan instantly.

Ulatus is very responsive in their daily communication and they obviously know what they are doing in their project management role. The assignments given are specialization matched. I found that the content very strongly reminded me of the kind of content I would read while perusing journals during my Bachelor and Master’s studies (although, obviously, it is in Chinese). In terms of feedback, Ulatus have been good and responsive. Their post-editing system seems like it would be quite effective. The payment is delivered on time and as per their payment schedule. With regard to the consistency of work, Ulatus has provided me a nice side-stream of income. Moreover, in terms of flexibility, Ulatus have been quite reasonable in this area. All in all, it has been quite engaging to work with Ulatus in academic translation. I’ve had the pleasure of learning a few things along the way in my own area.

During the period of time that I have worked with Ulatus, I have been given work on a regular basis with high quality content. The staff is friendly, and they are always willing to help out with all types of queries. Ulatus provides a strong communication and supportive system so that you can concentrate on delivering good work. It’s a good place for language specialists to be, and it will give you the freedom and flexibility to explore your own capability.

I have been working for Ulatus for a few months now in the field of Linguistics, and I can already testify that it is one of the most professional translation companies I have ever worked with. As a translator, I greatly appreciate the quality of the information provided along with each assignment. It is clear, to-the-point and extremely detailed. Also, the workflow is effectively streamlined by top-notch online procedures. Owing to this, it is possible at Ulatus to interact with the client to work out any problems that may occur during the translating process—which helps a lot to achieve the highest possible quality of the translation. The teamwork is one of the best I have ever experienced along with a permanent support. Other employees that I exchange e-mails with are highly responsive, polite, and patient. I can feel that everything is done at Ulatus to fuel the motivation of their translators in order to help them to deliver their very best. To work for Ulatus is definitely a fulfilling experience. I would strongly recommend it to anyone willing to work in the field of translation.

What I appreciate the most while working for Ulatus is the professionalism and understanding of the needs of the freelance translators. I have always received prompt replies whenever I had any questions or concerns. Also, I really like that I have a platform to communicate with the costumer and the ability to leave feedback or comments on my translations. Not all translation companies understand the importance of this process.
I also enjoy the feeling that I am part of a team. Even though I am only a freelancer, I have received pamphlets regarding company standards and policies along with very informative monthly newsletters. Being part of a team is very important for me, as it not only helps me understand what I am expected to do but also because it is a great motivation to live up to those standards.

Thanks to your support, I have been working with you for a couple of years now. I feel that the assignment given by you always match to my specialized fields and I enjoy doing my assignment. When I have any inquires about the assignment, the project management team is always prompt in answering and resolving my queries. This helps me work smoothly and meet all deadlines. I am also satisfied with the payment procedure on time. I am looking forward to continuing our business relationship. Thank you,

Ulatus is truly very professional in all aspects: from establishing the assignment guidelines and specifying expectations for the completed job, to promptly answering any queries about the work, time schedule, job requests, and payment amounts and procedures. Having details about a job and the time limitations defined upfront, absolutely help the translator to gauge their ability to complete the work. The mechanisms established for downloading files, including invoices, are totally "sweat free," i.e., very easy to use, which I do appreciate. The project team members and coordinators are always a delight to speak to. They are courteous, polite, and helpful, while expecting efficient and timely job results. Furthermore, the assignments are very stimulating and interesting, always offering a new window into the world of human affairs and endeavors. Translation is a fascinating job and has many challenges. In particular, it is worthwhile if one can make a full-time job of translation with pay incentives commensurable with the effort.

Communication via e-mails and telephone is excellent. In the e-mails, the details of translation/checking assignments are very well specified in a professional manner, and I can start working smoothly. The assignments till now have been very interesting. All of them are about scientific and technical/industrial translation. I highly appreciate that I was assigned a wide range of assignments, and thus, I could broaden my knowledge/expertise through actual translation and research work. The experience of working along with native and bilingual checkers is especially invaluable. The feedback mechanisms are important for achieving a high quality of work. The work is provided in a consistent manner. However, I face problems when the assignments involve formatting, i.e., when I have to copy from PDF files. In this regard, the Ulatus staff helped me with preparing files in MS Word format, which greatly facilitated my translation work. Technical work itself is arranged in quite a flexible way and is not restricted to a particular area. I can always consult with the Ulatus staff for resolving any issues. I would sincerely like to build up a working relationship with the Ulatus through regular, intensive, and improved translation work. Overall, the professional approach of Ulatus is excellent, including its consultation and feedback processes.

I started working for Ulatus in April 2010. Communication with the project management team has always been rapid and friendly. Despite time differences, there is always a team member available to respond to any queries regarding assignments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Assignments suited to my area of expertise are proposed. Ulatus has an online platform where the translators are able to leave comments for the project management team regarding the assignments. There is also a system in place to contact the client for clarification of assignment content.

My overall experience with Ulatus has been very satisfactory in many aspects. Sometimes, the deadline assigned can be restricting. However, Ulatus usually tries to work with me to develop a schedule that best suits me. I like working with Ulatus very much and would like to continue working with them for as long as I can.

Since I joined Ulatus as a freelancer, I have worked with Ulatus on a number of IT and general technology subject projects for both translation and proofreading. Past work experience tells that Ulatus is a trustworthy team and that they are always ready to help me with the queries I have regarding the projects. Ulatus deserves to take pride in the level of their professionalism as well. Hopefully, in the future, we can work together on some automotive subjects!
PhD in Psychology, 20 years Exp.
The two things I appreciate about working with Ulatus are
1) The desired style, target readers, intended use, etc. of the translation are specified in the beginning. These are crucial in translation, yet, in fact, not many translation agencies specify them at the beginning of a job. Ulatus does!
2) Feedback for translations already completed is provided to the translators who worked on them. This is very helpful for their improvement.

My experience with Ulatus has been an enriching one. Through working with Ulatus, I have been able to improve my translation skills at a professional level. The support system is continuous and readily available. I appreciate the prompt communication regarding translations and payments. Deadlines for translations are reasonable. In future, I would appreciate more feedback from editors and clients as it helps me reflect on my work and improve my translation.

Having had the privilege of working with Ulatus as both a translator and checker since October 2012, I am very impressed with their highly professional and comprehensive approach to translation and localization. Assignments are frequent and are always a good match with my fields of expertise. With very few exceptions, the projects that I have worked on to date have been fascinating and made for interesting reading in their own right.
Thank you for inviting me to work in your Interpretation Events! You are a GREAT TEAM!!!
Thank you for making Ulatus the best company to work for.
