About Our Translation Agency

Espresso Translations is a fast-growing, leading ISO-certified professional translation agency London providing a vast array of professional language solutions to businesses and individuals worldwide. We offer global translation services in over 150 languages thanks to our network of more than 2000 highly-skilled linguists. Our professional content solutions include standard, urgent, and certified translations, proofreading, transcription, localisation, voiceover solutions, transcreation, subtitling and desktop publishing.


There are many agencies out there offering translation services, so what’s different about us? Well, the key to our highly-recommended language translation company’s success is that our linguists only translate into their native language, ensuring impeccably accurate files that are localised to the target audience. Around half of our linguists are specialised in a particular field, such as financial translation services, meaning that we can find the best linguist, familiar with industry-specific vocabulary, to suit your requirements.

We pride ourselves on the high quality of our work and our exceptional customer care. We go above and beyond for each of our clients, whether a student looking for CV translation services or a multinational organisation seeking marketing translation services. Each client is allocated a Project Manager who will be their main point of contact from beginning to end, so they know who to speak to if they have any questions about our language translation services online.

We are ready and willing to be as flexible as possible, so if that means arranging a phone call, a video conference, or a face to face meeting with our clients to discuss translation services, we are more than happy to do so.

We like to think of ourselves as a rather tech-savvy translation partner. Our clients can choose whether they prefer a human translation or using the latest translation technology CAT tools such as Trados, MemoQ, Linguee, etc. When it comes to transcriptions, we are familiar with many time-coding tools such as Aegisub, Subtitle Edit, Subtitle Workshop and more.

We also have dedicated tech experts for those jobs that may involve multilingual typesetting, for example, modifying text within images using Photoshop, or saving files in unusual formats. This is particularly useful in German translation whereby the word count increases by approximately 20% when translated.

We are trusted by some of the biggest companies in the world, however, no task is too big or too small for us. Our global translation agency UK is a stickler for deadlines; our motto is: on time, every time. And we do absolutely everything in our power to keep to our word.

Unlike other companies, we endeavour to help you reduce costs and so our language translations come at very affordable prices. Don’t believe us?

Espresso Translations was founded in the United Kingdom back in 2011 by Danilo and Niki, two linguists who worked together to provide services. In its early days, Espresso focussed solely on Italian translation, however, due to increasing numbers of requests for accredited language services into multiple languages, Danilo and Niki began building a network of experts covering a broad range of European languages. Over time, both the team and demand grew, so in 2012 they decided to form a language agency specialising in providing translation services in London.

The business continues to grow rapidly, and today the agency in London has a 2000-strong translator network covering more than 150 language pairs. Although their primary focus is now the management of the company, still today Danilo and Niki work in tandem to complete translations and interpreting services.

“When we first started out our translation services, it didn’t even cross my mind that we would grow to become an international language agency. I think the fact that we have worked, and continue to work, as translators ourselves gives us a competitive edge compared to other companies. We understand not only our clients but also the linguists that we work with.

We can look at a document and from our own experience, instantly understand more or less how much time and level of experience is required. We endeavour to deliver 100% accurate texts in a timely manner, every time. Client satisfaction is at the heart of our agency; if they’re satisfied then we are too! We pride ourselves on the fact that we can cater to anyone’s needs.

A lot of our competitors focus solely on satisfying larger, corporate clients, however, we recognise that without our smaller customers, we wouldn’t be where we are today. We maintain affordable prices so that we can continue to cater to both ends of the client spectrum.”

Niki Leiper, Director


Our professional translators are highly-qualified with at least 5 years’ experience and are chosen from amongst the best available. All of our language experts go through a rigorous selection process to ensure that we secure only the top linguists. Our experts will only ever translate into their native language, to ensure 100% accuracy, readability, and flow. This means that your French translation services will be completed by a native-speaking expert.

We believe human translators to be far superior to machine translation. We divide our linguists into ‘generalists’ and ‘specialists’ depending on their skills-sets. Projects are then allocated based on the industry or sector and knowledge required. For example, a medical document will be handled by a medical translator.

Generalist linguists translate generic texts that don’t require any knowledge of industry-specific vocabulary. Specialists specialise in one particular area and are fluent in industry-specific vocabulary. Examples of some areas where these linguists would be used are legal, digital content, food & beverage, medical, and technical translation services.

Our linguists are professionals, experts in their native languages. They understand that translating isn’t merely changing words from one language to another, but taking into consideration local cultures, social, political, economic and religious factors along with different dialects and local slang to produce the best global content. A Spanish translation, for example, will always be completed by a native speaker.


Our devoted and friendly team work collaboratively with you to meet your demands and requirements. Our linguists uphold our high ISO 17100:2015 quality standards and sustain our policies throughout the entire process.

As part of our translation services quality assurance protocol, every linguist will proofread and spell check their work before delivery. A second proofreader will then review the document to ensure that it has been done to the highest standard. This accuracy guarantee is essential for certain types of sophisticated translation online such as if you’re looking to translate a website, technical documents or software localisation.

We as a language interpretation agency take pride in the high quality of our work and thrive on positive feedback from our clients. If you have any queries or require any clarification, we allow unlimited revisions within 14 days of the date of delivery, just contact your PM, and they will be happy to assist you.


Let us give you an idea of what the translation services process looks like:

  1. You upload your files and send them to us via our online form or by e-mail;
  2. A designated Project Manager will review the doc(s) and send you a free quote based on the length of the text(s), the complexity of the language, and the delivery date. We are very proud of our fast turnaround times. We endeavour to quote all clients within the hour;
  3. For the first job with a client, it is our policy that we receive payment in full before delivery;
  4. Once we have payment confirmation, our most suitable linguist will begin working on the doc;
  5. Once the file is complete, it is proofread by the translator;
  6. The file is then reviewed by a second linguist;
  7. The file is subject to quality assurance checks;
  8. We send the file back to you via e-mail and/or post, depending on your requirements, within the agreed delivery date;
  9. You can ask your PM for unlimited revisions within 14 days of the delivery date.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, our translation agency in London continues to recruit new translation services experts so that we can expand our offering of translation services even further, broadening language pairs and specialities on a daily basis.
