We are the right agency for your assignments because:

We work according to the following principles!

The Native Speaker Principle: All assignments are carried out by native speakers – they are not just translations. This means that every translator, every typist, every writer or editor will translate or edit in the language that s/he grew up with. In this way, we can ensure that all our assignments meet the required standards with regard to linguistic and cultural particularities.

The Four Eyes Principle: Our services and prices include proofreading by a second translator as well as an internal check as part of our quality management process.

DIN EN 15038: We comply with DIN EN 15038 in all our translation assignments. DIN EN 15038 is a quality standard for translation services. It covers the core translation process, but also the requirements for all staff involved in the translation process, working to guarantee the best quality for your project.  

We have good references!

If we don’t know each other personally yet, perhaps you’d like to take a look at our Customer Feedback. Out of the 47 companies we asked, all 47 would recommend us to others.

We have fair prices!

We do not have to live in an expensive city like Munich to be able to do translations and transcriptions or to compile texts. Therefore we have moved our headquarters to beautiful but inexpensive Cape Town and can now produce top quality for better prices.


We are professionals!

And that thanks to the size of our organisation. Instead of “one for all” we have a Competence Centre for each specialised field. Your assignments are therefore always in the best hands, professionally and personally, even with large volumes and tight deadlines.

Trust our professional writers and leave your translations, transcriptions and texts to us. We would be delighted to take on your project. By the way: with over 600 professional writers and translators we are one of the largest online writing services in the world. – Supplying insight into language.
