Localisation means modifying a product (website, doc, or software) according to a local area, a country, or city within a country. Modifications mean the translation will be adapted to the local culture and language of the people living in that area. Unlike translation, localisation is done to make your project understandable to a local audience.

We offer 900+ language combinations in all kinds of sectors. Some of our most popular translated languages are English, Chinese, French, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, German, Albanian, Kurdish, Swedish, Hungarian, Turkish and Japanese. We also cover languages that are not widely spoken such as Tetun, Wolof, Creole, Oromo, Afar, Bantu and many more.

The main areas of expertise are Business, Gaming, Banking & Finance, Legal, Advertisement & Marketing, Manufacturing & Engineering, Energy & Environmental, Technology, International Trade, Travel & Tourism, and Retail.

We use native-speaking translators who specialise in your sector and have experience translating similar documents. To find out more about translators specific to your industry, find your sector in the industries section on our website.

Each translation project is completed in the following stages

  • Getting a quote and order placement by the buyer
  • Assign to our first translator
  • Quality check by our project manager
  • If the quality score does not meet our standards the project is edited by a second translator
  • If the quality score meets our standards, we will send you the completed project via email
