Localisation services – carefully target UK and global audiences

Localise your website. Your app or software. Your latest e-learning course. Your content. Using our localisation services, our London, UK and global clients make their communications appear completely natural to natives of any target market, anywhere in the world.

Because translation is all very well and good. But when you want to really sell. Really convert. Or really persuade. You need to fully adapt your content to the cultural norms and expectations of your target audience.

That’s where localisation comes in. Use our localisation services to transform everything about your product and service offerings – text, documentation, images, audio and video content – so that they look fluent and persuasive to your target market.

Adapt your content to your audience

Nothing is more obvious than a poor translation of a marketing slogan or content from another language.

Direct translation of the words used in the original may make sense. But they fail to be persuasive or make the same impact as your original work.

Use our localisation services to adapt your content to take into account local history, cultural factors and the local relevance of ideas and issues. Everything needed to make your website, e-learning course, online content or any other materials completely natural to a native eye.

Have us adapt images and icons. Fonts. Dates and times. Colour use. Audio and video files. Every aspect of your project. We use in-house expertise in everything from software engineering to transcription to DTP to perfect the final result.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What’s the difference between translation and localisation?

    Translation involves converting your text from one language to another. The aim is to create a text with equivalent meaning.

    Localisation goes much further. The goal is to fully adapt your text to a local audience, considering cultural and regional issues as well as many other factors to make the text appear completely natural to a native eye.

    The localisation process can be applied to images and video content as well as text.

    What can we translate?

    We can translate files in any format.

    From plain Word files and PDFs to Desktop Publishing files from software like Quark Xpress or Adobe Framemaker. We can work with Javascript, HTML, XHTML and other web formats as well as all kinds of software in almost any format you care to name.

    Need an unusual type of file translating? Get in touch with us and confirm that we can work with it. There’s no commitment to using us.

    Do you work with companies or private individuals?

    The vast majority of our clients are companies or organisations, but we are also happy to work with individual clients.

    No matter how big a client you are to us, you get the same award-winning, personalised customer service every time.

    How much will my translation cost?

    The long answer is that your translation cost will vary depending on things like the volume of material you need to have translated, your target language/s as well as several other important factors.

    The short answer is that it’s always best to get in touch for a free quote. There’s no fee or obligation – and you can get a clearly costed price breakdown of your specific project so you know exactly where you stand.

    If you often find yourself in need of professional translation services, we may be able to offer you special rates. These will be based on the amount of work and level of partnership you have in mind.
