Direct access to freelance translators
Iolante offers clients direct online access to professional freelance translators. Our linguists translate German, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Romanian, Polish, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese to English. They also work from English into simplified Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, Romanian, Russian, Polish, German and French.
Our translators are highly competent in their mother tongue and at least one other language. They are also familiar with the culture and business practices of the countries between whose languages they translate. This makes them true language specialists.
As self-employed experienced language specialists they know that reliability, quality of work and customer service is what clients need. They can afford to offer lower rates than translation agencies. This is because their overheads are much lower than those of agencies.
By cutting out the middle man, both you and the translator benefit. While our freelancers do not aim to be the cheapest in the UK, their aim is to work for sustainable rates. Most importantly, they concentrate on quality. They make it their business to find out your exact translation or interpreting needs and thus delivering the product that is right for you.
