When entering a new export environment it is important to tailor your message to the target language and culture. This can be as simple as translating brochures and marketing materials. However, it often involves ensuring product and company names convey the desired meaning.

Many legal documents require translation, proofreading and an official stamp for use in court or contract submission. The Language Centre can provide translations which have been translated, proofed and stamped with an attestation that the document is a true translation of the original.

Website Translation

To global businesses, the company website is a shop front to partners, customers, employees and prospects around the world.

Consumers are 4 times more likely to buy from web sites that support their native language. With more than a billion Internet users worldwide creating, maintaining and updating websites across multiple languages is now a critical business function. 


The Language Centre also provides professional interpreting services at very competitive rates.  You   confidentially and is assured.  Our team of well-qualified and professional linguists are hand-picked for ability and friendliness.
