As you are well aware by now (most likely, since you got to this page), the date of 25th of May 2018 is fast approaching and the new Data Protection regulations will come into force. Lately, we have seen an increase in requests for translating documentation related to GDPR (privacy policies, supplier agreements, terms and conditions etc.), so we decided to address this as a separate topic.
One thing to take into consideration: if your company has branches in various countries and you’re translating your policy, you should consider whether you need to localise the information regarding the Data Protection Authority (e.g. ICO in the UK, CNIL in France, ANSPDCP in Romania etc.). Sometimes you may need to, sometimes not, depending on your particular case.
Since there is not much time left, if you need your suppliers to sign and return the new agreements by the 25th of May, now is the time to act and start translating your materials. Otherwise, it may be more expensive later on – and I am not talking about the fines (up to €20 million – yikes!), but urgency charges (up to 100%) that may apply when deadlines are tight.
How can we help you?
- Your documentation will be in the safe hands of highly specialised translators – not any translator will do when it comes to legal translations, even if the GDPR guidelines say plain language needs to be used; it still pertains to the legal field and getting it right is paramount
- Since we (and our translators as well) need to comply, we are well acquainted with the topic
- Whether you need one or more languages, we have you covered (we work with all European languages, but also others). Here are some of the languages we can help with: French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, Polish, Dutch, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Czech, Danish, Greek, Finnish, Swedish.
- Your confidentiality and the safety of your data are very important; we are registered with the ICO (the Data Protection Authority in the UK) – registration number: ZA067866
