The CAIRN Story

An Unprecedented Partnership in the Field of Academic Research

In 2013, Cairn International, the most comprehensive online collection of French-language publications in the humanities and social sciences, chose us as a partner to translate into English 880 articles  and thousands of abstracts selected from 100 academic journals.

Given the complexity of academic research, authors often prefer to work with one translator rather than a translation firm. However, our strategy based on the collaboration between specialized translators with expertise in a variety of social science related fields and professional English editors has allowed us to provide a partnership tailored to the needs of research institutions.

Between 2013 and 2015, JPDS translated an unprecedented volume of research articles from French to English.
