Founded in 1992, Kadence works with some of the world’s largest brands, providing global coverage at a local level.

  • Kadence were facing quality and process issues around their existing localisation work for multi-country studies.
  • They were looking for a global partner with a local office who offered a wide range of language services. This included both their quantitative and qualitative projects, with the focus being very much on quality and service delivery.

Projects include:

  • The multilingual localisation of a survey for a 12-market study
  • Single-stage transcription working to very tight deadlines to understand focus group content
  • OE response translations enabling the coding of foreign respondents on a large international study.


Approach / Solution

  • Dedicated Singapore-based Project Manager
  • Introduction of translation memory benefits, as well as secondary proofreading as standard to ensure best quality


Global Lingo have become a trusted language partner of Kadence, offering a wide range of language services which complement the day-to-day survey localisation work:

  • OE response back-translations
  • Single-stage and dual-stage non-English language transcription
  • English–English transcription
  • Interpreting services for international focus groups
