Translations

We offer a wide variety of language combinations. At the heart of our specialized translation service, we understand that language is inherently political and that our linguistic choices have implications. We are fully committed to delivering the best quality each and every time while developing long-lasting relationships with our partners.

Our team of experienced native linguists is highly proficient in the fields of human rights, gender equality, health, sexual and reproductive health, the development agenda, relief, and others.

Our audience-centred approach and the use of CAT tools ensure that our language choices match the specificities of the final audience and that final products are consistent in their terminology.

Over 50 million words translated since our foundation.

"IWORDS has always provided very good customer service to MSI – the company has provided very fast turnaround on both French and Spanish translations, even when presented urgently at the last minute, and whether large or small. The company has helped us out of many difficult situations when we were up against the clock. They are easy to reach and always concerned whether we are happy with the quality; they have been happy to work with our glossary and lexicon in order to continuously improve."
