Clear and accurate food label translation

All our food label translators are native speakers in the language they are translating into, which means first and foremost your food label translation will be accurate and easy to understand for your customers. We can provide a direct and accurate translation of your food packaging, but if you have location-specific marketing copy on your labelling that won’t translate directly into another language, for example regional vocabulary or plays on words, we can help with localisation and creative translation that accurately translates your brand voice for a new market. Localisation services can help you get your message across while staying compliant in any world market, from widely spoken languages to regional dialects.

Regulatory checks: Leave it to us

We understand the complexities of international food label regulations and have experts who can advise on country-specific laws and guidelines in over 80 foreign markets, including Japan and the USA. Our regulatory experts can check your translated packaging, assessing both wording and label design to ensure you won’t run into any expensive compliance issues further down the line. Familiar with rules on over-labelling, FDA and EU packaging regulations and more, they can provide compliance advice before your translation goes ahead and check your final label afterwards. Putting your labelling through these important extra checks avoids having to retranslate labels at a later date and can avoid costly mistakes

Cost-effective and transparent package pricing

Our pricing structure for food label translation is structured around pricing packages that include reviewing initial artwork, translating the label and a recheck before a final sign-off. We offer full regulatory support throughout the translation process. Whatever your product, we can provide the service to fit, from basic food labelling to the more complex regulations surrounding vitamins and food supplements. Our pricing packages are tailored to your product, based on the packaging translation requirements and the countries you require translations for. We can quote for any size of food label translation project, from a complete translation for a newly launched product to a change of just one or two ingredients on existing packaging.

Compliant translation you can trust

Absolute Translations holds an ISO certification specific to the translation industry, attesting to the high quality of the service we offer, and is also a member of the Association of Translation Companies. Our translators all have at least five years’ experience translating into their native language, and we offer a whole suite of supporting language services, from translation of legal and business documents to specialist business interpreters for meetings and negotiations.
