WHO WE ARE
The company EKFRASIS CONSULTING was founded in 2006, as a response to the intercultural communication needs, ever more conspicuously present on the Romanian market. This company’s strategic focus, since its very founding, as a full translation service provider, was also the creation and maintenance of multicultural partnerships, by offering integrated solutions and high quality services.
EKFRASIS CONSULTING is a Greek capital company, whose activity from founding until the present has consisted in the provision of translation and interpreting services, with significant experience in the sector and important clients from the banking, production, real estate, retail, medical, construction, consultancy and legal sectors.
EKFRASIS CONSULTING fully understand its clients’ unique, personalized and highly difficult requirements, having acquired such skill throughout the many years of experience gathered by working with many clients from various fields. This work methodology has been developed through the valorization of fast, accurate and high quality translation and interpreting, these items’ importance being deemed crucial in developing clients’ businesses and overcoming language barriers.
The company’s vision consists in setting higher standards, flexibility and responsibility for customer satisfaction, this vision being part of its strategy of development and adaptation to a competitive business environment.
THE EKFRASIS "CONCEPT"
Ekfrasis is Greek for Expression. I gave it this name as I wanted it to be an expression of what we do and want. The expression of business quality and common sense in the field of translation and interpreting. The expression of a different approach of this quite requested and highly competitive field.
Our concept has always been different from that of other sector companies, in that our strategy has been constantly focused on reducing costs, a fact directly mirrored in our clients’ bills, with no negative effects on translation quality or delivery terms. Thus, we have managed to fully and satisfactorily meet Ekfrasis clients’ requirements, developing reliable and long lasting business relations.
I believe that this Ekfrasis concept is best mirrored in the website you are now visiting. But if your trust our services, you will get to see lots of facts and goodwill. We have always been there for our clients, both by offering translation and interpreting services, and by providing assistance with various actions, solving various issues, going beyond our strict scope of support, upon their request, most of the times beyond working hours and considering weekends as working days. We have created a team of staff and collaborators who believe in the Ekfrasis concept and work with devotion.
It goes without saying that translations are essential for the daily professional live. They represent a process, whether written or spoken, which is more than a transposition of words in a different language, but a complex, difficult and creative process. Its complexity is rendered precisely by the differences of language, culture and mentalities, and we therefore try, and I would say successfully manage to cut these differences down to scratch by means of our capacity to grasp shades of meaning and language traps.
There are many companies providing translation services on the market. The difference is obvious when one manages to create a trust and sometimes friendly relation with the client. A relation which is more than commercial and financial, it becomes fulfilling by exceeding these limits. And when at the end of the day, we understand that our work has contributed to something constructive, to increasing the efficiency and contributing to our client’s market success, the fulfillment is even greater.
This is what the Ekfrasis concept means and what we try to «express» in the translation and interpreting sector.
