What’s a style & preferences guide?
When you trust your work to a translation agency, you expect the final document to be flawless and publish-ready. But sometimes you end up rectifying imperfections that you already have corrected in previous translation works. That’s why at Australis, one of our main commitments is to file and continuously update all your preferences for terms, expressions, special terminology, measurement systems, and even the tone of your company’s multilingual communications, into your individual style & preferences guide. Once we have created this document together, our team of expert linguists will use it systematically, so in the future, you don’t have to worry about recurring and irritating flaws.
“Using your style & preferences guide our work is going to be impeccable”.
How does is it work?

Our team of professional translators will use your style & preference guide to guarantee our top quality approach.

For multilingual communications, your preferences are essential to achieving our quality-assured translations.
