Top 5 Translation Companies UK

June 25, 2020by admin

Overview and Methodology:

There are multiple Translation companies present in the UK at this time. In order to obtain the desired result from you translation purchases it is important to commission the one most suited to you needs. We have assessed them on several criteria, these are:

  1. Turn over time
  2. Quality of Translation
  3. Price
  4. Service Accessibility
  5. Language Range
  6. Security of Transaction

Each company has been given an overall score from 1-5 based on each criterion collated based on customers feedback. Furthermore, each company has also been assessed in relation to specific Translation Services that are frequently requested, these are:

  • Certified Translations
  • Certified Pharmaceutical Translations
  • Approved Audio Translations and Subtitling
  • Specialist Fashion Translations
  • Certified Legal Translations
  • Approved Medical Translations
  • Immigration Document Translations

The same six citations have been used to assess their service value for each of these services. A winner has been allocated for overall performance, performance in each criterion, and performance in each service.

  1. We have decided on a winner for each criterion as well as an overall winner. The overall winner determined by customers feedback and testimonials is “Absolute Interpreting and Translations Ltd”. We have come to this conclusion based on the average grade based on calculated through their score on each of the six initial criteria.

Overall Performance Scoring:

Firstly, our overall winner with an average score of 4.93 is Absolute Interpreting and Translations, Scoring:

  1. 8 for turn over time
  2. 5 for quality of translation
  3. 8 for price
  4. 5 for service accessibility
  5. 5 for language range
  6. 5 for security of transaction

Falling slightly short of a perfect score, Absolute Interpreting and Translations is certainly the overall best translations company. They have a secure website, hosted through a private server through which document translations can be processed securely processed and paid for anywhere in the world, meaning they have exceptional accessibility and security.

Furthermore, they provide over 300 languages all done by translators with native proficiency assured by two ISO quality assurance accreditations, meaning they score exceptionally well on a range of languages and quality. Furthermore, their services are not limited to translation, as you may assume from the name they have other language services too, putting them ahead of the competition.

Finally, while they do prove the same day and next day translation, these come at roughly twice the cost of standard requests when coming from clients without prior supply contracts. While this is standard among all translation companies, they would need to supersede it for a perfect score.

In Second Place with an average score of 4.88 is Manchester Translation Services, its breakdown is as follows:

  1. 8 for turn over time
  2. 5 for quality of translation
  3. 8 for price
  4. 7 for service accessibility
  5. 5 for language range
  6. 5 for security of transaction

It scores just below Absolute Interpreting and Translations due to its geographic focus and smaller scale of operations, costing it in terms of service accessibility. That said, it still does have a very accessible website, meaning the damage is minor.

Given it has the same quality assurance and cybersecurity accreditations; it is safe to say they are matching in terms of service quality, and security. It also offers same and next day translations, meaning it matches in terms of turn over time. However, similarly to Absolute, it loses some points due to the cost of same-day translations.

In third place with 4.83 we have Translations in London, scoring:

  1. 8 for turn over time
  2. 5 for quality of translation
  3. 4 for price
  4. 8 for service accessibility
  5. 5 for language range
  6. 5 for security of transaction

Similarly to Manchester Translation Services, its only real loss to Absolute Interpreting and Translations is the scale of its operations.  However, It does fall slightly below Manchester Translations due to the price of some of its other language services, mainly its interpreting services. This is likely a result of the price of transport and labour within its main operating region (London). However as London is slightly better connected than Manchester, it scores slightly higher than Manchester translations, though still lower overall.

In fourth place with 4.76 we have Essex Translations scoring:

  1. 8 for turn over time
  2. 5 for quality of translation
  3. 4 for price
  4. 6 for service accessibility
  5. 5 for language range
  6. 5 for security of transaction

Much like all the other contenders Essex Translations scores perfectly on quality language range and security, matching the other contenders in accreditation and service opportunity. However, it falls behind London translation in terms of accessibility, covering a smaller geographic area in terms of interpreting service, while matching them in terms of price. Thus, it has the 4th position as opposed to the 3rd.

Finally, with 4.6 we have Birmingham Translation Agency, scoring:

  1. 8 for turn over time
  2. 5 for quality of translation
  3. 4 for price
  4. 6 for service accessibility
  5. 8 for language range
  6. 5 for security of transaction

Birmingham Translations is the only agency to lose out on language range, boasting fewer (though still a very high number) of languages. This is likely a result of its competition with Absolute Interpreting and Translations, which, while an international provider, has its headquarters in Birmingham. As some of the rarer languages have very few linguists, competition for them can be tight, meaning that some smaller firms are not able to provide the same level of language coverage. However, as with all 5 language service providers who were able to feature here, It still boasts high security, quality, and speed.
