Boot Bananas expansion with global translation services

SECTOR: Clothing | BRIEF: Translation and proofreading

Translation into six languages boosts export sales thanks to global translation services

Alex and Phil approached Atlas when looking for global translation services to translate the packaging and instructions for Boot Bananas for overseas markets. Our first step was to find out more about this amazing product.

Phil was passionate about climbing and led a very active life. But Alex noticed that this brought with it an inescapable problem – their flat was filled with the odour of his stinky shoes. They scoured with market for shoe de-odourizers but found nothing that worked. So they decided to develop their own. From scratch.

Boot Bananas are made from locally sourced, natural ingredients with an innovative design that works a treat – as well as being environmentally friendly. They proved extremely popular and the couple produced 8000 from their flat in the first year. But soon they needed a factory to keep up with demand and they could see Boot Bananas would do well in foreign markets too – so they called in Atlas Translations.

Export-ready translations in double-quick time

“We were delighted with the service offered by the friendly folk at Atlas. Amazed at how fast they were able to turnaround our packaging translation considering how many languages we required.”

We sourced linguists to translate into German, French, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish, as well as providing different translators to proofread the texts.

What had started as a solution to one pair of smelly shoes, had ended with the sweet smell of success. With the export translations from Atlas Translations, Phil and Alex were able to seize their opportunity to become exporters and take Boot Bananas into a string of foreign markets.

Atlas Translations have provided a variety of services for Alzheimer’s Society, including the translation of our flagship information resource ‘Worried about your memory?’ into a variety of different languages. The service we have received is consistently to high standard, with staff going beyond the call of duty to fulfil our requirements. I will definitely be using this translation agency again, and would recommend them to anyone looking for top quality translation services.

You have been such a help and we can’t thank you enough. We’re getting an amazing response. It is quite a challenge, but we wouldn’t be making our deadlines without your translation agency’s assistance. Many many thanks.


Atlas completed the work within our time frame and the proofreading service gave us the extra peace of mind that the translations were accurate and of quality.

It’s tough when you have to rely on a translation agency and trust that the translations are correct but with Atlas, we can rest assured that the language, tone, and style of translation is suitable for our audiences.


We are always very impressed with the quality and timeliness of the translation services provided by Atlas translation agency. The team are extremely helpful and we look forward to working together more in the future.
