We’re native speaking humans – not AI bots

You can’t risk trusting important document translation to AI or non-native speakers. They don’t fully understand cultural language differences. We do

Not all translations are equal.

There are translation businesses that may charge you a little less per word or line than we do, but it will cost you much more to undo their mistakes.

Man reading document

All our translators have master’s degrees in translation* and translate into their native language only.

Being bilingual and being a skilled translator are two different things. At the Translators’ Pool, all of our translators have to have a master’s degree in translation* because it’s not just about word for word translation, it’s about real, coherent language.

Cultural knowledge

Cultural knowledge is something we pride ourselves on. It’s the difference between knowing that in English, “killing two birds with one stone” is not the same as the direct German translation: “slaying two flies with one swat”. That is where The Translators’ Pool delivers. Quality people delivering quality translation.

Native speakers

We only assign native speakers to your project. For example, if you need translation services in French, you will work with someone whose first language is French, never their second or third language. This is vital for cultural understanding as every language comes with nuances and colloquialisms.


Translation projects are carried out by a translator plus a proof-reader. We endeavour to keep these partnerships together throughout a given project, which means that the work we produce remains consistent in tone, style and voice.
