Who is UK NARIC?
Now known as UK ENIC, UK NARIC represents the UK National Information Centre for global skills and qualifications. It provides a range of benchmarking, consultancy and capacity building solutions to global organisations.
It also provides UK Visas and Nationality services on behalf of the UK Home Office. Its work is vital to helping UK organisations and employers recruit skilled talent from overseas.
As a central service for students coming to study in Britain, UK NARIC had a number of challenges they approached us with:
- The need to translate certificates and other official documents rapidly
- Complete accuracy and consistency throughout all translations
- The ability to understand qualifications equivalencies and provide the right level of certification
Arguably the main challenge offered by UK NARIC was the need to translate official and highly specific documents in very short spaces of time with no room for error.
In the course of our work with UK NARIC, we have translated more than 100,000 certificates. Initially, the scope of our work extended to 3 languages, but in the wake of a productive relationship, has been expanded to 6.
We have achieved a 100% conversion rate of all translated documents, and, thanks to the foundation of our bespoke workflows, we saved the client roughly 22% in costs within 12 months of our partnership.
The use of highly-experienced translators blended with advanced translation memory software has meant that not only have all translations been provided within the required timeframes, they have also been produced with exceptional degrees of accuracy.
Our experience with the UK Home Office and global educational institutes allowed us to advise UK Naric on the level of certification required, giving students confidence that the official documents will be accepted by the organisation they were submitted to.
