Translations: Bureau claims 500 staff & they handle all languages/subjects in house. True?

No, it isn't. No translation business, not even the largest franchises, can afford to have translators in all imaginable combinations of languages and subject matters in house. The translation industry just doesn't work that way. All full-service translation bureaus rely on independent translators ("freelancers") for the majority of their work. What distinguishes reputable translation bureaus from "envelope switchers," i.e., merchants who buy translations from the cheapest available source and resell them at a hefty markup, is careful selection and testing of those independent contractors by a competent in-house core staff and a team approach to each translation job, whether in-house talent or outside experts are used for translation and editing.
