Language translator services and interpreter services
Language translator services really aren’t all the same…
Our highly-regarded language interpreter and language translator services support over 150 languages. Unusually, that also includes non-English combinations (so for translation of a French document into Italian, you pay for one language translator, not two)
Our quality-assured translator network of over 3,500 specialist language partners assures you of both the language and sector expertise needed. Unlike low-end providers we ensure we select the right translator, and the right reviewer, for YOUR material – instead of the cheapest translator and no reviewer.
So you’ll get the language translator services you need, which means you’ll also get the language translation that you need – accurate, on-time, right. By way of evidence, here’s a few case studies…

Language translator services for your real world
The list below of recent projects is far from comprehensive, but should give an idea …
“FIGS” – French, Italian, German & Spanish
French translator and French interpreter activity includes websites, contracts, tourism guides, manuals, logistics, taxation, construction, medical certificates, and lots of insurance. We’ve also handled voiceovers, packaging layout, and sight-translation of French property deeds for private clients
Our German team’s handled IT and finance, project management software, IPO’s and contracts, and tax reclaims. Environmental translation has featured a lot, as has piles of education stuff, while German interpreting covered training courses and legal cases.
Spanish and Latin American Spanish activity includes catalogues, brochures, websites, tenders and specifications, economics, and lots of certified translation.
The varied diet of our busy Italian translators includes contracts, VAT documents, and glass industry content (Italy’s famous for its glassware). There’s also lots of medical material (mainly insurance), newsletters, and stacks of food and drink translation (of course!). We’re also delivering lots of Italian interpreting, especially to the healthcare sector.
Our Portuguese (and Brazilian Portuguese) translators have delivered software localisation, websites, datasheets, and transcription. Alongside that a wide range of technical content has included marine and aero engineering, petrochem work, and lots of translation and typesetting for NGOs.
- Central & Eastern Europe
Our Central & Eastern European team has translated Polish, Hungarian, Czech, Romanian, Latvian, Estonian, Croatian and Serbian. Because font issues can be REALLY tricky in these we’re also doing lots of typesetting! Fortunately, we’ve had a lot of practice… In terms of content, our translators and interpreters have been busy on marketing, newsletters, datasheets, courses, tax, banking, legal cases, correspondence and engineering.
Our Russian & Ukrainian translator and interpreter teams are also busy. Recently Russian transcription has been big, including large certified projects, coupled with lots of Russian typesetting (including a 100 page technical catalogue). NGO work has thrived, as has Russian interpreting right across the UK.
Recent Dutch workload included water treatment, environmental reports, courses and newsletters, tax, Dutch finance, a large retail training course and Dutch and Flemish interpreting.
- Scandinavian Languages
Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic & Danish (Finnish less so) look similar to the untrained eye – we’re regularly asked to translate from the wrong one! Recent work includes EU reports, Finnish tax certificates, Swedish police stuff, Norwegian video and Danish contracts, and lots of food packaging using all 5 at once…
Greek translation brings its own typesetting issues due to the font and wide spacing (Greek translation typesetting on Mac is always entertaining…). Recent Greek translator work includes training courses, codes, tax, Greek voice overs, data sheets & brochures…
- Albanian, Turkish
Albanian & Turkish also mean the translator must watch their fonts! Interpreting is the big hitter currently in these languages, along with chemical and food packaging translation.
- Indian languages
Indian languages include Hindi, Gujarati, Bengali, Punjabi, Tamil, Sylheti and Urdu. Font and format issues are significant (Urdu, like Arabic, reads right-to-left), but we’ve established expertise to handle these. Recent Indian language work includes lots of council and housing association stuff and masses of interpreting.
We translate Traditional & Simplified Chinese, and provide Cantonese and Mandarin interpreter services. Demand for both Mandarin and Cantonese interpreting is strong, and we’re also translating a wide variety of other Chinese material. The last year has included technical bulletins and lots of Chinese typesetting, as well as the catalogue for a recent major Hong Kong art exhibition and the London Shopper’s Guide for a leading fashion magazine.
- Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese
Good Japanese translators aren’t common. Video work is on the rise currently, with several recent projects. Translation in this language, along with Korean and Vietnamese, continues steadily.
Other language translator services
- RTL – Arabic, Dari, Farsi, Kurdish,Pashto
Beautiful languages to look at – but remember, they go right to left (“RTL”), so typesetting is fun! Lots going on – stacks of interpreting in all these, along with the typesetting work and lots of NGO stuff. We’ve also typeset an enormous education project for Saudi Arabia, plant products, and more food packaging…
- African language
We support translation and interpreting for most African languages, particularly the refugee communities including Amharic, Lingala, Sinhala, Somali, Swahili, Tigrinya and Shona. Unsurprisingly most African language demand is in interpreting and we assist a wide range of courts, social services, insurance and medical clients around the UK.
Our vast translator and interpreter network also supports many lesser-known languages – we actually handle over 150 currently. So if you don’t see what you need above, please do ask!
