Professional Translation Services in Manchester Backed Up by Cutting-Edge Technology

Our translation expertise extends to more than the words you use. Our multilingual typesetters and designers are familiar with every written form, including vertical and pictorial writing systems, and can lay out your text in design for both print and web. We have in-house graphic designers on hand to create original work for magazines, brochures, product manuals, and more, and are highly experienced in creating layouts that accommodate text expansion and contraction (the growth or shrinkage of word count as your translation moves between different languages). Plus we offer notarial services for certified translations that require legalisation or apostille before they can be used in your target country. We offer competitive prices for our Manchester translations services by using state-of-the-art quality translation memory software, which creates a personalised translation memory for your organisation. Every time we carry out a translation project for you, the words and phrases you use most frequently are stored in your memory. You only pay for the new elements of future translations.


Professional Translation Services Completed to Your Project Schedule

Our Manchester translation services work to your schedule. Whether you need complex technical documents translated and ready for use at the start of business in Hong Kong, or a magazine translated and typeset in time for its next publication in Australia, our mother-tongue subject translation experts are the solution. We work to local time frames to ensure your content is translated and ready whenever you need it. Our qualified translators and interpreters speak more than 200 languages and are subject experts in fields ranging from medical science to pop culture and advertising. Every translator to join Absolute Translations must have five years’ minimum experience in the field, and most of our translators are living and working in your target territories – ensuring you get all the benefits of local knowledge, locally applied, in practically every time zone on the planet. Additionally, our Manchester translations services are supported by a range of additional document translation services services including publishing, design, and notarisation.

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!
