Translation and Localisation Services

Reach overseas 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.

Alzheimer's Society

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.

We’d be happy to tell you about our professional translators, our fabulous staff, our translation prices, the 340+ languages we cover, the sectors we work in, and our ISO certification. You can find answers to some frequently asked questions below, followed by details of one of our recent ISO certified translation projects. Find out more about our specialist sectors.

What is localisation?

Localisation is the process of adapting a product or service for a new region or culture. This takes into account legal requirements, formatting specifications and cultural nuances of the new market. It is a good idea to localise your product or text if you are looking to market your service and appeal to a specific country; we localise each and every translation that comes to us, be that changing phone numbers, adapting cultural-specific references, or even changing images.

Request a call back within 27 seconds, if you’d like to discuss your project with one of the team.

The localisation process:

  • Target market analysed
  • Source content examined
  • Text content adapted (i.e. for Americanisation or Australianisation)
  • Text translated if required
  • Text content is proofread
  • Visual content checked for suitability
  • File formatted and/or typeset
  • Final checks completed

From a birth certificate translation, to a certified translation, through to 25 marketing materials in 33 languages, we can help with our professional translation services.

Atlas Translations are here to support you. Whether you are an individual, a SME or a multinational, we can help. Additionally, we offer brand checks, voiceover, transcription, typesetting and layout services, proofreading, and even printing.

What’s involved in the Proofreading and Editing stages?

The entire process is multi-layered, allowing for four stages of checks and edits to ensure the finished article achieves the quality our clients expect. The first stage of the process involves Atlas choosing a suitable linguist for the task in hand.

All our translators are experienced, qualified linguists and they come highly recommended. But that isn’t enough: we always select a translator who is expert in the specific field. Once the linguist has translated the text into the required language they return their draft to Atlas. We then ask another linguist, equally qualified and experienced in translation in the same field, to proofread the first translator’s work. Our proofreader may make suggestions or identify areas for improvement. The text may need tweaking. It may be perfect. Of course, it’s always better to have a second pair of eyes to assess it.

Once we have the final draft at Atlas, we perform an in-house quality check to ensure the text translation and typesetting meet our high standards before sending the final version to the client. Read more about our commitment to quality.

Now let’s tell you about a project we worked on…

BookTrust is a UK charity that works to inspire a love of reading in children and their families. They wanted to spread their message to non-English speaking families across the UK and needed help to reach this audience in 28 different languages.

Here at Atlas, we offer the translation and proofreading services that BookTrust needed. For every assignment we select professional linguists who translate and localise into their native language. This way, the tone, inference and expression can be conveyed seamlessly, ensuring a high-quality result. Do you need our certified translation and localisation services?
