Why Choose Atlas Translations Ltd for Your Translation Service Needs?

Atlas Translations - translation servicePeople always wonder how many languages we at Atlas Translations Ltd speak. To that we say that our team speaks in such varied tongues as English, Spanish, French, and Slovak plus Russian, Czech, and British Sign Language (BSL).

Whether you are in the export business or are dealing with multiple language projects around the world, our experience and expertise in these services should prove useful for your cause.

2. We have certifications in the quality of the translation services we offer.

We proudly hold updated certifications for two standards: the ISO 17100 (formerly BS EN ISO 9001:2015) for quality management and the BS EN 15038:2006 for translation services. Additionally, we are active members of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting, the Association of Translation Companies, and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. This commitment to quality, coupled with our externally audited procedures, has helped us gain clients’ confidence.
