For translations that will be published

  • Are you spending too much time on corrections and editing?

We can deliver files that are ready to publish, following ISO 17100:2015 standards at every stage of the translation process.

We offer T.E.P. (Translation Editing and Proofreading) by vetted teams of native speakers and subject specialists.

  • Are you paying for repetitions?

From our experience, technical documents involve a lot of repeated text which can greatly increase the overall cost of your project.

Using specialised translation management tools, we analyse your files and apply a discount to any repetitions that we find. We only charge for the work we do, which means you will never have to overpay for a translation.

  • Struggling to find an efficient way to manage terminology?

When managing terminology, spreadsheets and Excel files can get confusing and make it difficult to visualise data clearly.

At the start of a new project, we create a term base (glossary) containing any key terminology. The customer can then confirm the translation of those terms in advance, helping guarantee high quality translations first time round.

  • Looking for quality translations by subject specialists and native translators?

We only employ native translators. We also have a wide network of subject specialists who are ready to offer their knowledge and expertise when required.

  • Do you need a certified translation?

We are ISO 17100:2015 certified and can provide certificates of accuracy.

  • Do you use tools like CAD, Madcap, Visio or InDesign? Do you work with different files formats, such as .dxf, .xml, .json, .po or .xliff?

We have an in-house team of graphic designers working in our dedicated desktop publishing (DTP) department. This means we can offer document formatting free of charge.

We can work with almost any type of document, so whatever programs you use, your translations will be ready to go.

  • Does your source text contain images that can’t be edited?

Our graphic designers have the required expertise to extract text contained in images and send it to our translators. We then deliver the image back to you, containing the text in the target language.

  • Concerned about confidentiality?

We take security very seriously. We are ISO 27001:2013, Cyber Essentials Certified and GDPR compliant. All our staff, both internal and freelancers, sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).

  • Need a translation agency that can guarantee quality and has indemnity insurance?

We cover our services with a 5 million GBP indemnity insurance policy, and we are very happy to say that in our 25 years of operation, we have never made a claim.

  • How do we charge for a translation?

We quote per project, on a per word basis. This excludes the cost of repetitions.

We use specialised translation management tools to analyse files and find any repetitions, so you will only be charged once for the translation of repeated text.

We create translation memories for your project and a glossary of key terms. This means that whenever you send new files for translation, we can cross check the content against your previous translations and only charge for new content.

If you need more information, our specialists are available to  provide you with advice on your project.

For translations that will be shared internally

  • Are you spending too much money translating documents to a high standard, when a basic translation would suffice?

The best solution is to use advanced neural machine translation (NMT). Superior to sites like Google Translate, this technology is designed to learn languages much like the human brain does.

Drawing on 25-years’ worth of data from our library of human translation projects, we have trained our neural machines to the highest standard. This has allowed us to create memory pools for a number of industries, including construction, automotive, manufacturing and engineering.

Our NMT is an affordable option that delivers impressive results. We also offer a sample page free of charge, so you can see the standard of quality and check if this is the right option for you.

  • Do you have tight deadlines?

We can deliver editable documents within 2 hours, and non-editable documents in just a few days.

  • Do you use tools like CAD, Madcap, Visio or InDesign? Do you work with different files formats, such as .dxf, .xml, .json, .po or .xliff?

We have an in-house team of graphic designers working in our dedicated desktop publishing (DTP) department. This means we can offer document formatting free of charge.
