Our mission

We want our clients to achieve their communication objectives. 
The way to do this is through clear and unmistakeable messaging. 

That's why we have made it our mission to translate in a way that ensures that your audience gets the message – for targeted, unambiguous communication.

This requires more than the mere ability to translate. You can rest assured that your documents are in good hands because at LINGUA LEGIS we are

Your documents are translated exclusively by native speakers of the target language who are qualified specialist translators, many of whom hold credentials as multi-lingual lawyers or financial experts.

Our experienced translators have the linguistic intuition and nuanced understanding of the subject matter necessary to reflect your company’s tone of voice and get your message across. The result is not merely an excellent translation, but pitch-perfect brand tonality.

We don’t just rely on translators with university degrees in translation: we also require additional subject matter expertise and practical experience. Many of our translators hold advanced qualifications as lawyers, Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) or Chartered Financial Analysts (CFAs). Continuing interdisciplinary training helps us to ensure that whatever the subject matter, every translation is on a sound footing – linguistically and terminologically.

We take your objectives and needs as seriously as those of our own. We ensure that all communications are translated to the highest quality, handled confidentially, and never disclosed to unauthorised third parties. We translate highly complex legal, financial and business texts, which often demand the highest level of discretion and confidentiality. We understand and accept the responsibility that comes with this. For us, a true partnership of equals means more than simply being dependable. It also means taking responsibility for data security, outstanding products and absolute discretion. These are not mere platitudes to us. They represent the non-negotiable foundation of our work – and our success – which we shore up with our information security and quality management systems that are certified in accordance with ISO 27001 and ISO 9001.

Communication is not just about how the messages are conveyed, but how the messaging is received. Translating your message from one language to another is a unique challenge – especially when it comes to controversial and sensitive matters. Bridging the gap between expression, comprehension and linguistic nuance requires finesse as well as knowledge of the cultural conventions and the local environment. We don’t just translate into other languages, we translate into other cultures to promote international understanding and ensure that your voice can be heard clearly and unmistakeably around the world.

We don’t just promise. We deliver.
