English Translation Services

English translation services can often be useful for businesses looking to expand into other English speaking markets. Whilst English the 3rd most spoken language in the world, and is an official language in over 50 countries, not all English is the same.

English translation and localisation

English is spoken in the UK, the US, Canada, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Nigeria, Belize, Ireland, Jamaica, to name just a few.

If you’re exporting to multiple English-speaking countries, we can advise on the best approach and language combination. We only use professional translators whose native language is English to perform an into-English translation for you. We appreciate the subtle differences in the style of English used in different countries around the world. That’s why we’ll only use translators from the UK to translate documents for a UK audience, and from the US for documents and websites aimed at an audience in the States.

We don’t just translate from English into other languages – we can also translate your documents into English. Some of the most popular languages that we translate into English include:
