The company was founded in 2007 to offer traditional translation and international business consulting services. After the first couple of years of operation, and one IT specialist later, we focused on developing online translation services. Our aims were to create an efficient and easy solution for our customers to make translation orders over the Internet, and to provide jobs for translators. The outcome was today's Lingosaur, The Online Translation Agency.

SKTOL requires its members to commit to high-quality performance and service, as well as to follow sound business principles. All the member companies are committed to a common Code of Ethics.

The Key Flag Symbol is meant for enterprises that want to stress the Finnish origin of their products or services and, in that way, the great values attributed to being Finnish. Finnish enterprises operate in an environment that is rapidly getting more and more international. Therefore, ways to prove the origin of products or services become increasingly important.
The Key Flag Symbol can be granted to a service that is produced in Finland. The minimum requirement for products or services is that the degree of domestic origin is over 50 per cent of the total cost price. This calculation takes into account the service-related costs, such as personnel costs, subcontracting, and materials acquisition. In addition, the company must have a significant domestic degree of ownership, management operations in Finland, and Finnish headquarters.
