for all your foreign language requirements - a translation service you can trust

About Us


Smallworld was set up in 1990 to provide high quality, cost-effective creative and technical translation services for a broad range of clients.


We now work regularly on both technical and promotional literature for numerous companies in the UK and abroad, producing many thousands of words into and out of foreign languages.


Our full-time in-house production staff are fully capable of co-ordinating complex multilingual translation projects to tight deadlines, overseeing such matters as technical accuracy and stylistic consistency.


With access to over 250 experienced, qualified freelance writers both in the UK and abroad, we cover all Western and Eastern European languages including Czech, Estonian, Finnish, Greek, Latvian, Russian and Slovak as well as more exotic areas such as Arabic, Chinese, Indian languages, Japanese, Korean and Thai. We also translate an enormous amount of material into English both for reference and publication purposes.


We can also provide DTP and typesetting services in all the above languages as well as proofreading. Where a text has been prepared elsewhere, we can verify the translation against the original. We supply consecutive and simultaneous interpreters for the UK and abroad.
