Translating a personnel handbook

Virtually all companies have a personnel handbook these days. For those of you who are not familiar with this concept, such a handbook contains all of the company's important rules and procedures. This will include matters like pension regulations, information regarding your pay structure and rules applicable to absence due to illness and sickness notification in complex situations such as during holidays, etc. You may also come across employment contract models, as they are sometimes also called, in these personnel regulations.

Many companies are opting to have their entire personnel handbook translated into one or more foreign language(s) since an increasing number of foreign workers are being taken on and the employer is obliged to provide all staff with information on personnel regulations.

Our translation agency can be of service to you with these translations. Our translators have gained valuable experience of texts that focus on the practical issues of personnel policies. Some of our translators have also enjoyed a Human Sciences education. The advantage of using such a translator is that we will always be up to date on all the latest changes to legislation and associated terminology. More to the point, being familiar with English law and legislation in this specific area is an absolute prerequisite.

After all, there are many specific terms that require a little more thought than a simple, straightforward translation. The translator will choose the best possible translation in close cooperation with our project manager and yourself. We will sometimes include some additional information with the translation. Your staff would certainly not benefit from a text that left them with more questions than answers. We will send you the completed translation together with any comments or additional information, which means that you will be completely aware of any of the nuances that we have applied to the text as a result of differences in employment law.

Send us your employment contract, personnel handbook, assessment report, psychological profile, letter of appointment, letter of application, CV or terms of employment conditions by email and we will provide you with a competitive quote by return. Do make sure that you mention the target language.
