    Language services for an increasingly globalized world.

     

    Since our inception in 2004, Spectrum Translation has provided language services to professionals, companies, NGOs, agencies, and individuals in more than 35 languages and continues to do so every day.

    Originally a provider of the West European languages Dutch, English, French, German, and Spanish, with Russian, our language support now covers the entire linguistic spectrum of Europe and such Asian languages as Chinese and Japanese.

    A unique feature of our dynamic company is its scope – in just one month of 2017, we worked with a total of 25 countries, translating and localizing for the languages spoken there.

    We invite you to discover more about how our company – a dedicated team of linguists, translators, proofreaders, editors, and writers – can help you break the language barrier.

    Welcome to Spectrum Translation.

    Getting texts to acceptable standards in terms of style and usage is an increasingly large and important part of the volume of work we undertake. We edit English, Dutch, German, French,and Chinese on a daily basis. Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian appear no less in our workflow.

    Agencies around the world also send us their texts to edit due to the quality we are able to guarantee.

    We have had so many requests to rewrite content, that copywriting – the creation of new, original copy – was soon added to our offerings. We normally write copy in English and Dutch, including website, marketing, and press release texts.

    Other languages for copywriting include Afrikaans, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

    A major part of our business. We help recruit and interview native speakers in countries around the world for companies which want to assess the quality of the translations they have created. It’s a people-intensive task, requiring a lot of networking, communicating, and facilitating of processes all around the endeavour of translation.

    This allows texts to be ‘validated’ for local populations, some of whose members help us by giving their views on the quality of the translations.

    We have provided interpreters for several events, conferences, and engagements around the world. Languages have included English in combination with Chinese, Dutch, Finnish, French, and Spanish. We also provide liaison/research services in…

    We have provided interpreters for several events, conferences, and engagements around the world. Languages have included English in combination with Chinese, Dutch, Finnish, French, and Spanish.

    We also provide liaison/research services in any of the world’s languages, some of which have recently (2017) included Arabic, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Chinese, and Japanese.

    A smaller department at Spectrum Translation, we can offer bespoke interpreting solutions for most engagements in most areas of the world.
