From marine transportation and engineering to vessel building and offshore fishing, the specialised skills utilised in the maritime industry are a huge part of the global economy.

The only people willing to help at short notice

I was in a desperate need to have a same day certified translation of a Chinese document into English for a passport application. In fact it was 2pm when I found out it was necessary. By searching on Google I tried 4 other companies which couldn't get it done on time. This was the only company that would go the extra mile and help me out. I had excellent service and would highly recommend them above all other translation service companies. I can't thank them enough!
