    Steps: Workshops to identify the organization’s requirements, the target audience(s) and the user requirements (internal and public users)

     - Editorial guidelines (semantic landmarks, editorial filter)

  5. Communication plan: Editorial calendar, per message, target, and media

  6. Realization: Actual creation of the website
     - “user stories” writing (specifications that can be understood by any stakeholder, whatever their profile and their technical literacy)
     - iterative development of the website: you can see the result evolve as the developments happen, and redefine your priorities and requirements between two iterations
     - tests, approval, move to production

    Steps: One or many iterations (depending on the complexity of the project) leading to the delivery of a functional version of the website, ready for testing.

     - Web Content Management system installed and ready to use
     - Content loaded in the various page templates
     - Functional website, ready for testing before public launch
     - (In case of multiple iterations: website delivered after the 1st 1-2 iterations, with a reduced scope. But functional, nevertheless. The scope is completed before the last iteration)

“Poetry is what gets lost in translation” - Robert Frost

Sometimes, you might have to break out of your comfort zone and explain your work in a foreign language. But unless your command of the other language is absolutely flawless, you might sound a little alien: the very structure of narratives varies amongst different languages and cultures. We know how difficult it is to find translators who understand science, engineering, medicine as deeply as they master the grammar and we would be delighted to:
  • Help you adapt and deliver your content in another language
  • Provide you with support and coaching for your talks (pronunciation, word stress, false friends)
  • Connect you to native speakers who can help you with the cultural subtleties of any given area
  • Or... We can translate your scientific texts, regardless of their complexity. This is what we did for the French book publisher Éditions Belin, turning Carl Zimmer's World-wide acclaimed “Planet of Viruses” into the French « Planète de virus »

Sadly, sharing fake or imprecise information can happen to anyone of us. Mistakes are common amongst our Species. And to add upon the confusion, the current era of fake news and alternative facts is definitely not helping.

In a scientific context, sharing distorted information is simply not acceptable. Not only is it contrary to the ethics of the trade, but it may also seriously damage the author's credibility and weaken society's trust toward scientists.

To make sure that the content of your articles, reports or scripts for videos or podcasts do not contain any mistakes, we provide a fact checking service.

It doesn't matter whether the content is intended for a broad audience or a few experts in a specific field,  we meticulously proofread it before it makes it way to the outside world.

As trained scientists, we know where to find reliable sources: scientific papers, trustworthy websites and experts of the field. This is a way for you to remain a reliable and credible source, and gain serenity at the same time.
