With translators of a technical nature in our database ranging from doctors and engineers, we can provide medical translations, medical reports, doctor’s notes, engineering manuals, user and maintenance manuals, websites , technical specifications and many more..

Certification

Our translations can be certified in the following ways: An In-house certificate of accuracy (signed by the translator or the project manager). An affidavit before a Solicitor (this is generally for translations being used in English courts). An affidavit before a Notary Public. (This is generally for translations being served outside the Jurisdiction). The Foreign & Commonwealth Office can legalise translations with an Apostille. Please note that translations need to be sworn before a Notary Public before the FCO will legalise them.

Interpreting

Xenophiles has an extensive range of highly skilled interpreters who offer comprehensive legal and financial interpreting services for court hearings, business meetings, client briefings, interviews, depositions. We can provide consecutive or simultaneous interpreters. In consecutive interpretation, the interpreter waits for the speaker to finish speaking and then will render their words into the target language. This is the most common form of interpreting. In simultaneous interpretation, the participants wear headphones and the interpreter will render the speaker’s words into the target language as he or she is speaking.

Proof reading and publication checks

Our standard translation prices are for translation and checking by one translator. If you require checking by a second (or even third) translator or a publication check, please enquire.
