A translation agency is a company that handles a multilingual project from A to Z. Most agencies are actually small translation companies, varying in size from 2 to 5 people, and often specialise in several language pairs using in-house translators. Large translation agencies handle multilingual projects using external resources. Due to globalisation most translation bureaus tend to turn into multilingual agencies using external translators. The quality of an agency isn’t necessarily proportional to the size of its structure as smaller firms are often closer to their customers (Source: Wikipedia)
