Since the introduction of the Official Languages Act in 2003, we have been consistently assisting Government departments and other public bodies in their statutory duties by providing translations of their publications, reports, websites and other documentation into Irish.
We offer high quality translation and proofreading for all customers, completed by professional Irish linguists chosen by us based on their extensive experience and qualifications. We only employ translators with proven expertise in the field required for our clients’ documents.
We offer proofreading in addition to our translation service and this is especially important for documents that are meant for publication. It ensures that all translations are of the highest quality. This service covers all document types and formats.
If you wish to review a document which is already in Irish, our expert linguists will proofread and verify the content to ensure that it is correct in terms of grammar and style.
We also offer a Desktop Publishing (DTP) service to assist in the final design and layout of any document. For more information please click here.
