Who is ARUP?
ARUP was founded in 1946 by Sir Ove Arup, whose work is still heralded as an inspiration to the design and engineering world. Under Sir Ove’s direction and beyond, ARUP is the name behind an unprecedented portfolio of projects.
Their work includes the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Sydney Opera House, the Angel of the North, and King’s Cross Station. ARUP is now working on Gaudi’s iconic church in Barcelona, helping to complete a series of towers on the centuries-long project by 2026.
ARUP initially came to us with a sizable and multi-faceted challenge:
- Translate three 30,000 word legal documents in a week
- Manage the process in a timely and cost-efficient manner
- Provide sector-specific and legal language expertise
Given that a professional, experienced translator can translate roughly 2,000 words each day, this was set to be a sizable task, and one that without an innovative approach could easily have overrun the deadline and cost the client heavily.
Not only did our proposed, needs-based solution mean that ARUP was able to proceed on time using their translated documents, we achieved significant cost efficiencies that we passed on to the client.
Through our solution, ARUP was able to save £157,000 against their original request for our support.
All the information the client needed was translated as and when they needed it, on-site and with the additional benefit of sector-specific and legal expertise.
