Dictionary definition of translation


We work with translators across a wide variety of language and disciplines, meaning we can provide a translation for almost any text in almost any language pairing. We work with accredited professional translators who are experts in their field and, as far as possible, translating into their native language.
If you have a text you need translated and would like a quote, please send a copy of the text to along with the details, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

(Please note that we do not provide translation services into Welsh, however we will be happy to point you in the direction of those who can!)


We can also provide interpreting services for a variety of languages and for various purposes, including police, court and business interpreting. Please contact with details of the assignment for a quote.

Bespoke language courses

We offer our first-class language teaching to businesses and organisations with our bespoke language courses; if your company has clients or colleagues based in non-English speaking countries, we could have an initial meeting, conduct a needs analysis, design a syllabus for your delegates and deliver the training. Whether you’re complete beginners looking to acquire new skills, or established linguists in need of a refresher, we can deliver a course that suits your needs.
