Introducing…South West Translators!

Twitter header landmarks (2)

One thing I’ve learnt since starting my business is that the South West of England is not the quiet little rural region that I once thought it was. Well, it is, in a way – but it’s also got heaps of business and tourism potential.

I’ve discovered through various local networking events that lots of business owners in Devon and Cornwall are keen to export their products, create international links, or attract more foreign visitors to the South West – but that step into the unknown can be quite daunting. The language and cultural barriers can be a struggle, and we all know that translations are easy to get wrong.

That’s why I, along with four other translators, have decided to set up a “team.” We’re all based in Devon but we all have different language combinations, so that we can recommend each other if we happen to meet someone who needs a translation in a different language to the one we offer, and, you, in turn, don’t have to waste time looking for freelance translators in the language combination you want.

Our aim is to translate your business, marketing or tourism content from or into English, French, German or Spanish, to help you reach more international customers.
