Translation services  

Research translation

We translate research papers, journal entries and articles. We understand that budgets can be tight and aim to be competitive, without compromising on quality.

Technical translation

Technical translation covers many industries, requiring translators with sector-specific and/or specialist knowledge to deliver the most accurate translation. We work with industry-leading Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) tools to create a library of terms, meaning subsequent translations recognise repeated terms and use translation memory to reduce costs where there is repetition of text such as in operation manuals/device instructions.

Forward / Back translation

This approach is an important step to ‘test’ the efficacy of a translated text or document and is mostly used in the translation of questionnaires, manuals for medical devices or other instructional documents intended for communicating with large audiences e.g. public health information targeting specific demographics.

We also offer Forward / Back translation for marketing transcreation projects, actively engaging audiences by translating straplines, corporate vision and values and making sure that the key messages of your campaign are delivered on point. 

Transcreation for the marketing sector

Our team of translators are highly-skilled creative linguists, specialising in the accuracy of messaging for more subtle or specialist texts. We facilitate two-way communication to check meaning and seek clarification as required.

If you’ve a marketing or recruitment campaign, great care is taken to make sure your messaging is on point, referring to your corporate branding guidelines to communicate effectively with your audience to get results.

Again, choosing to include Back translation will give you full control over the effectiveness of your communications by offering a number of translation options to help you decide how your target audience will receive and understand the text to full effect. 

Certified translations

UK law requires a certified translation to be completed by a sworn translator. To be accepted in a UK Court of Law or for general legal purposes, the translator provides a statement to say that it is true and accurate translation of the original document, making it a certified translation. However, there are cases when the translation also needs to be notarised. Speak to us if you're unsure which service is the most appropriate.

We deliver prompt and accurate translation for all your legal needs, including:

  • Medical reports
  • Adoption papers and certificates
  • Birth, Marriage and Death certificates
  • Driver’s License
  • Immigration documents
  • Insurance documents
  • Transcription and translation of audio/video for submission in a UK Court of Law.



Complex document formatting? We can help make sure your translations retain all the characteristics of the original document using typesetting or Multilingual Desktop Publishing as an additional service.
