For the public sector

Welsh language standards were introduced as part of The Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011. The standards provide a legal framework giving individuals the right to receive services through the medium of Welsh.

This is changing public perceptions and expectations – and meeting the standards will be a challenge for many.

What can Ateb do – We provide cost effective solutions to help organisations meet the requirements of the standards in a sustainable way, leaving you with more time to focus and deliver on core objectives and priorities.

For business

The Welsh language is increasingly seen by businesses as a key aspect of corporate social responsibility and a way of defining identity – ensuring they are relevant and credible in the modern Wales.

For business wishing to work within the public sector in Wales, the ability to deliver bilingual services is becoming a core requirement.

And for service based business providing a bilingual service makes commercial sense – providing better service and improving customer loyalty.

What can Ateb do – We specialise in bilingual communications and developing practical strategies for incorporating the language into your business in a meaningful and sustainable way.

For all our clients our experienced team delivers services to the highest standard in a way which is simply packaged and cost effective.
