Cover Design

We amend the design of your book or magazine cover to fit your translated content, which may be longer or shorter than the original. We can also advise on suitable colours, fonts and imagery to suit the local culture.

Why Choose Us?

Experience has shown us that the publishing industry is becoming increasingly international, with a rising demand for international content in readers’ own languages, and we firmly believe that by providing the best possible translations we offer you the perfect chance to tap into this rising trend. 

A huge amount of this comes down to the skill and experience of our translators. With a network of over 2000 mother tongue translators, we can guarantee a translator specialised in the kind of text you need translating, whether that means literary translations, newspaper translations or if you’re looking to translate a book.

When it comes to word-perfect editorial translation services, however, we know it’s about much more than having good language skills and knowledge of the field, so we promise all our clients that their translator will only ever translate into their native language.

The international outlook of the publishing industry also means that editorial language services are not limited to translation of the document itself. If you’re working with international authors or collaborating with foreign publishing houses, our industry-quality legal translation services can provide you with word-perfect contract translations so that you can rest assured your interests are protected throughout the publishing process, while our marketing translation experts can help you rework international marketing copy to suit a local market.

When it’s a question of publishing content, we know that while accuracy and consistency are crucial, you also have to work to tough deadlines so that every other stage of the process, from copyediting to typesetting and proofreading, can take place. Due to this, at Espresso Translations we make it our mission as an editorial translation agency to deliver projects on time, every time, meaning that you never need to worry about the text we translate holding up the rest of the process.


Maybe you require a rapid translation of a title whose rights you have just acquired in order to meet seasonal deadlines, or perhaps a quality translation of a few choice extracts to persuade senior editors to buy the rights in the first place. At our Oxford translation agency, as soon as we know your needs we will provide an accurate quote within the hour, so you don’t need to wait around.
