Bid and Tender Writing Services
For a brief overview of how to write a bid in another language, visit our FAQs.
Delivering a convincing response to an RFP is an excellent way to clearly demonstrate your expertise and win exciting new business.
But the process of actually putting that response together can be intimidating – all that data gathering and analysis, not to mention the sheer amount of writing, often involving multiple contributors. And all for something that may or may not come to fruition! Add a foreign language into the mix, and it can start to look like a mammoth task for uncertain gains.
We’re here to reassure you that it doesn’t have to be. Having worked on international tenders with everyone from VFS Global to BSI, we’ve learned that, while there is a core amount of work involved in any good bid writing process, there are also plenty of tips, tricks and tools available to simplify the process and reduce the noise.
Driving international growth for VFS
VFS Global’s global expansion strategy relies upon answering requests for tender, or RFTs. Their bidding team often needs to rapidly receive, react and respond to complex RFTs in unfamiliar languages. Guildhawk’s international network of specialist linguists with industry expertise made us the perfect partner for VFS – and it’s a partnership that has helped them win exciting new business and grow their bid team.
If you are writing your first international tender proposal, we’d be happy to guide you through the process. Read our guide to the 5 Ts you should keep in mind when responding to an RFP in a foreign language. This includes guidance around when you need translation, and when more cost-effective solutions like data extraction will do. (We know as well as you do that you need to invest as little budget as possible in something that doesn’t exist yet, while still achieving excellent results.)
We can also give you access to Guildhawk’s content authoring tool Text Perfect, an AI solution which, among other things, can standardise content written by multiple authors into one tone and terminology set – a function that could save you hours of proofing and editing before submission.
