1st Translation Company : City Translation Services

About us

Your first call for any translation

Established in 1968, 1st Translation is one of the very first translation services available in the UK. For the last fifty years we have been at the forefront of the specialist translation sector, due to our uncompromising focus on three key elements: translation standards, time efficiency and client service.

Whereas other translation providers have seen the quality of their translation services undermined by diversification into other areas, 1st Translation remains dedicated to translation and so continues to flourish. Our clients stay with us and recommend us, which in turn means our prices remain competitive – we have no need of expensive marketing campaigns. Industries change, as we well know, but the need for outstanding translation solutions at a reasonable price and in a timeframe to fit persists.

Based in the heart of the City, we are thoroughly versed in the specialist working languages of the legal, financial and business worlds. We use only the most suitable linguist for each assignment and our translation managers regularly liaise with these experts to ensure the smooth progress of each project. When time is of the essence our team works around the clock to guarantee that you receive your translation at or before the agreed time at the expected quality. Our pre- and post-translation support gives you that essential peace of mind.

Our commitment to our clients, in terms of both translation standards and bespoke service, sets us apart. We are the consummate language and translation specialists. Our client recommendations attest to this fact.
