Meet the Team

Our people have a passion for languages, expertise in translation and a real desire to make a difference for our clients. We’re sticklers for quality, passionate linguaphiles and grammar geeks.

At Comtec we know we’re only as good as our people. That’s why we put so much time and effort not only into recruiting the best, but into ongoing training to meet our clients’ needs.

As a team that can say hello in over 15 languages, we’re a friendly bunch and we extend that positivity from the office through to every client meeting.
