Translations and Language Courses in France and England

You need a company you can depend on and trust to deliver language services (translating, and language training abroad) professionally, accurately, and fluently.

Welcome to Active Languages, a mother-daughter team who have spent the last 25 years building up a network of top translators to work on your websites, manuals, product descriptions, marketing campaigns and more. Nathalie started the business in the Ribble Valley before WFH was the norm. Her clients were initially local businesses and word of mouth brought her customers from all over the world.

Over the years, Active Languages has also built strong relationships with the best language schools in Europe so that professionals can join a business language course to promote their products to European clients with confidence, help teachers plan language stays for their students ahead of their AS/A Levels or give kids a summer to remember at an all-inclusive campus abroad.

We have worked with Active languages for a long time and are very happy with their service— We receive good, consistent translations from their native translators with a great turnaround time and competitive pricing. They also consolidate jobs for us which helps keep our costs down. Nathalie and Heloise are great to deal with and we never really have any problems that they can’t resolve.

We have used the services of Active Languages Ltd on several occasions for translation of our web sites into a variety of different languages. On all occasions we have been impressed by the thoroughly professional way in which the work was carried out – from the initial contact, through to the final checking of the web site.

It wasn’t just a case of sending off our text and then getting back a finished translation. The translators that were used really took an interest in our company and its products, and took great pains to ensure that any technical explanations or areas for possible misinterpretation were fully investigated before the translation process began.

Their interest continued into the new web site builds as they also checked the accuracy with which we had implemented their translation on to the foreign language web site. It is also reassuring to know that there is a competent native speaker who will be performing a final check.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Active Languages, and would certainly be in touch with them whenever we have any translation requirement in the future.
