Capstan: Linguistic Quality Control

cApStAn’s most experienced project managers worked for the company as freelance verifiers before joining the core team: the support they can offer to their peers is rooted in first-hand experience. Researchers who have spent time with us at the office invariably report unmatched dedication to the task: the team has taken ownership. We are cApStAn. We embody the “excellence among friends” approach, and we thoroughly enjoy our job.
