Defence Translation Services

Our direct association with the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has enabled us to develop robust translation and research skills in one of the most varied linguistic terrains in the world. The global theatre of defence translation incorporates air defence, cyber defence, aviation and space research and international strategies for manned and unmanned deployment in a variety of hostile situations. Some other organisations we have assisted include Aerospace Design & Certification, BAE Systems, Greater London Authority, Department for International Development and UNESCO. Our military sector translations are carried out by native professional translators, who are experts in the science and terminology of governmental defence disciplines, political documentation and vehicle specifications. Uniquely qualified to provide real military sector translations using acknowledged experts, we answer the challenges of the defence industry by understanding the requirements of every client individually.

Defense Translations Services Professional in Uniform of a Translator and Army

Specialist Defense Translators

Designations, acronyms and appropriate code names are at the heart of many Army translations. From TUAS (Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems) to IED (Improvised Explosive Devices), it’s vital that your documentation retains the correct meaning for complex designators. Statistical information regarding combat readiness, the effective range and purpose of ordnance and the systems specifications of wearable tactical computers calls for highly technical, precise delivery in the language of every partner in a defence contract.
