South African Translation

South African translations services designed to meet your needs

As the home of international companies, there’s a broad range of requirements for translation amongst South African businesses, from basic business communications to creative marketing content.

To ensure you get the exact service you need at the appropriate price, we offer five different service levels.

Fully Managed Translation and Editing

What? Professional translation, with separate editing. Our most popular service level.
Best for: Business documents where style isn’t a priority, but accuracy and clarity are vital (e.g. general correspondence, legal documents, etc).

First Draft Translation

What? Fast, low cost, professional translation.
Best for: A basic ‘non business-critical’ translation of the required text in the requested language (e.g. incoming business communications).

Fully Managed Translation with Style

What? Professional, fully proofread translations which adhere to on-brand messaging.
Best for: Documents that must respect corporate brand/style guidelines (e.g. sales/marketing material).


What? Original copywriting in foreign languages.
Best for: New product-launch material with culture-specific references.

Post-Edited Machine Translation

What? Content is translated using a Machine Translation tool and then edited by human editors.
Best for: High volume added-value content (ideally created in controlled authoring environments), such as technical documentation and Wikis (e.g. non-verbatim website comments, etc).
