The VEQTA Story
The name VEQTA comes from the word ‘VECTOR’ which is a term used for categorizing images in Desktop Publishing; for example, Adobe Illustrator and InDesign files. Some of our very first assignments involved Desktop Publishing in Malay and other Asian translation for billboards in the Asia-Pacific Region which required this scalable format.
Today our translation firm has grown to include a strong team with thousands of qualified translators and reviewers working under our umbrella. Today our core focus is providing translation services both in Asia and overseas as well as providing localization in over 50 different languages. We specialize in providing translation and localization language solutions for corporations and organizations worldwide.
In addition, we have developed strong and extensive connections in the audio and subtitling industry, and we collaborate with partner studios on nearly every continent and as well as providing voice-over recording in Malaysia and Singapore. We have recorded and directed dubbing and voice-over recording productions for audiobooks, corporate presentations, commercials and radio shows.
