"Why 'Lifeline' Language Services?"

Founded 1990 providing emergency language services to haulage, "Lifeline" seemed appropriate! Now one of the UK's most experienced and trusted providers, services include Translation, Interpreting, Voiceover + Subtitling, Transcription, and multilingual Typesetting , in over 150 languages. (Beware providers offering "all languages"(!) - here's why!

Why partner with us?

Because we've delivered over 30,000 projects with VERY positive feedback. Because we're really helpful and widely recommended. And because we really know our stuff - here's some case studies and here's some advice on selecting providers.

Unlike most providers we're a Translation Company, NOT merely an Agency - this matters! ALL our linguists are mother-tongue, professionally qualified and experienced, and ALL translation is 100% revised AND 100% reviewed.

We're qualified

With 7 professional linguists in-house (4 Translation MA, 2 MITI (Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting - ITI) and 2 MCIL (Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists - CIoL) we're Full Members of the Association of Translation Companies (ATC) AND Corporate Members of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI). Our Managing Director is both MCIL and MITI, and sits on the ATC Council. And our Production Director is Chartered Engineer, EurIng and MIET (Member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology).

We're experienced

Many translators have little "real world" experience. Our team's all worked in industry, logistics and commerce so really understand your stuff. Our MD's an internationally-qualified Transport Manager (and National President of UKBPW). Our PD has 17 years managing technical & manufacturing operations, EHS and IT. Our Operations Manager and other PMs - mostly Translation MA qualified - have varied backgrounds including retail and military. Real world experience reflected in our translation.

We're trusted

We know procuring translation is tricky, and you place great trust in the provider. We ensure that's justified, whether you're buying for a multinational or your daughter's marriage certificate. We're also trusted by suppliers; we never bully and pay fairly and reliably, meaning we attract and retain the best linguists for your projects.

We're responsible

FAIR procurement means BETTER service. While not all providers agree we strive for fairness - here's our ("Star"!) letter in the ITI Bulletin, and here's our Sourcing Policy. We take placement students and work with schools encouraging new linguists, and help our community qualify as translators and interpreters. Here's more reasons to choose us.

Sounds good... What next?
