NGO – Non Profit Organisations Translations

We are official long-term contractors of the United Nations, and are a trusted partner for some of the largest NGOs worldwide

At Intertranslations we can help you find the best way to reach your target audience.

Communicating with overseas staff and volunteers in their native languages is a key issue for both non governmental organisations (NGO) and intergovernmental organisations (IGO). IGOs are international organisations that have been created through a treaty, involving two or more nations working together towards a common goal.

From poverty, hunger and human rights to gender discrimination, child labour and trafficking, these organisations fight for global causes. This means that the messages of NGOs and IGOs need to reach a global audience.

For nearly 25 years, Intertranslations has worked with numerous NGOs and charitable organisations as a trusted partner for translation services.

At Intertranslations, we can help you overcome any of the challenges you face by delivering accurate, high-quality translations.

Are you a part of an NGO requiring a centralised system for translations?

We offer a simple solution to all your translation needs. Right at the start of our partnership, you will be assigned a Single Point of Contact (SPOC). Dedicated to working with you, they will handle all your requests, queries and comments regarding your translations, invoices, and deliveries.

Your organisation will also be given a dedicated Intertranslations email account. This will give you a secure, direct line to our team, improving the correspondence flow by allowing all parties involved to be updated at once.

Do you need NGO translations in Asian and African languages, such as Dari, Farsi, Kurdish Sorani (Arabic script), Kurdish Kurmanji (Latin script), and Yoruba?

Over the course of 25 years, we have put together dedicated linguistic teams who are bilingual in a range of language pairs. Our translators are fully aware of how important it is for your translations to retain the full impact of your message.

Are you spending too much time on corrections and editing? Would you rather have the quality assured by subject matter experts and native translators?

  • We deliver files that are ready to be published.
  • Following ISO 17100:2015 standards, we offer all our clients a Certificate of Accuracy if needed. This verifies that the translations we produce are accurate, complete, and true.
  • We offer Translation, Editing and Proofreading (T.E.P) by teams of native speakers and subject matter experts. This means your translation will go through multiple stages of quality control to ensure the highest quality.
  • We have developed our very own quality assurance process and will never deliver a project that contains errors or discrepancies. Respecting our clients and their needs, we only deliver quality work.

Do you need to translate complex documents using various programs, such as InDesign, PowerPoint, and PDF?

Our in-house graphic designers have the expertise needed to handle the layout and formatting of your documents. We offer our desktop publishing (DTP) services to clients free of charge and can work with almost any type of document.
