Our logo

The ABES logo design features a dolphin. Compared with other creatures that live in the sea, dolphins are blessed with superior wisdom and judgement, and they live by communicating with each other. It is our aim to live like dolphins in the world of translation, striving to be a group of value-added professionals, and that is why we have chosen the dolphin as our logo.

We are proud that each of the role players at ABES is able to deliver high value-added service to the customer, with a professional’s sense of self-awareness and responsibility.

“Translation”, “School”, “Staffing service”, our triangle of service



ABES service supports the individual by providing the kind of service that matches their current translation ability. For translation beginners we offer our School, and for those with translation skills, we offer them the chance to utilize those skills as ABES employees, or as contract – dispatch employees, according to their needs. Following a step by step approach within our triangle system, we can help people to develop as highly skilled professionals.

And, for our corporate customers, we aim to respond to your needs for translation, translators, or the improvement of your employees’ translation skills.
