Best Review Sites for Translation Companies
A survey shows that more than 93% of consumers take online reviews into account before making a purchase. It is only natural for a person to visit review sites to see the satisfaction of previous consumers with the products or services of a company before making any purchasing decisions.
In translation and localization, reading reviews from online sites is the very first and crucial step on the journey to find the right translation partner to work with. Thus, extra attention and effort should be put into this step.
In today’s article, we suggest three reliable review sites for translation companies that you should at least check out once.
Clutch is a well-known unbiased review site that clients come to visit when looking for a reliable translation agency to work with. You can find the name of almost all language providers on this platform, together with their profiles and honest feedback from their clients.
Many people do not put their trust in reviews online because, on most review sites, all it takes to leave feedback on a product or service is to create an account with just a click of the mouse. That means everyone can leave a review, whether it is an employee of the company or its competitor, which make the reviews untrustworthy.
However, it is not the case with Clutch. Only real customers are allowed to submit a review. The review can only be conducted in two ways – via phone call by the Clutch’s team or online if you have a verified LinkedIn account.
What’s more, one review on Clutch includes detailed information on the service user (their company industry and job title), the project background (opportunities and challenges), the service provider’s solutions, and recommendations for the service provider.
Such review methods applied by Clutch seem to bring feedback that is the most reliable and closest to the services’ quality in real life. GTE Localize is proud to be rated 5 stars for our excellent translation services and be of the top best translation companies on this platform.

To avoid spammers and make sure the reviews are truthful and valuable, GoodFirms requires reviewers to make the feedback as detailed as possible. Must-have information on a review is the reviewer’s job title, company, project budget, duration, and feedback on the services’ quality.
