  • Acorn Translations’ aim is to offer all our clients not just a quality translation service, but a total package.

  • It is our aim to build a long-term relationship with every client. We would build translation teams familiar with your work, along with a glossary of preferred terms to be used within your translation and an archive of all completed translations.

  • We encourage feedback from our clients in a constant effort to maintain our translation standards.

  • Acorn Translations can offer our clients any form of reporting procedures they may require. For example, we could issue a quarterly report providing details of the translation jobs undertaken, the amount of words translated, the costs involved and the work giver who requested the translation.

          • Ad Hoc Interpreting

            This is the method of interpreting used for small meetings and site visits and is the least formal method of interpreting.

          • Courts Interpreter

            This is undertaken by a professional court interpreter who is familiar with court procedures and surroundings. Working in a court environment can be quite overwhelming for those who are not experienced in how a court works.

          • Whisper Interpreting

            This is as it sounds; an interpreter accompanies a client or small group (1-3) to a meeting and softly relays what other members are saying to the client.

          • Consecutive Interpreting

            This is normally used in a presentation environment or small business meeting e.g. the interpreter waits for the speaker to complete a sentence or few phrases before conveying their meaning to the audience in the required language.

          • Simultaneous Interpreting

            This is a little more involved and is most commonly used when there are many different languages present. For example, you may have seen simultaneous interpreting in action at the United Nations, where there are many leaders from different countries who each speak a different language. Simultaneous interpreting requires Interpreters working in teams of 2 in sound-proofed booths. Interpreters interpret what the speaker is saying as they speak into a microphone, hearing this on their headsets and relay it to the designated delegates (in real time) who are also listening through headsets.

          • Voice-Over

            We can supply a voice-over artist to record a new foreign language version of any of your existing corporate or training videos. We can also arrange the studio facilities where the voice -over will be recorded.

            • Acorn Translations can supply you with a fast and accurate translation from a professional mother tongue translator. General translations come from many different areas and can comprise of tenders, reports, presentations and web pages, to name but a few. For translations involving a specific field of work (e.g. legal or patent translation), please take a look at the translation options above.

            • We are able to translate to and from almost any language thanks to our database of professional translators.
