BACKGROUND

KPMG operates in 148 countries and has more than 113,000 professionals working in member firms around the world. KPMG's purpose is to turn knowledge into value for the benefit of clients, employees, and capital markets. Member firms aim to provide clients with a globally consistent set of multidisciplinary financial and accounting services, based on deep industry knowledge.
CHALLENGES
KPMG is a truly global company, and many national and multinational organizations around the world rely upon their member firms for sound accounting services and financial advice. It is therefore imperative that their international communications be translated with only the highest standards of accuracy and clarity. So KPMG turned to Scribe Consulting when negotiating the alignment of accounting processes and standards with members in Japan. solutions

Scribe Consulting's use of state of the art localization tools and processes enabled the team to maintain high translation quality and consistency among the multiple translators required to meet all scheduled milestones. The workflow from translation to customer review was integrated using Scribe’s GlobalVault project management portal, enabling effective communication and containing project costs.
RESULTS
The knowledge and experience of Scribe Consulting’s translation teams ensured that all translations were linguistically fluent as well as technically accurate. Scribe Consulting's technical expertise provided for lower translation costs, higher consistency in terminology and faster turnaround.
