Human Resources translations

Your choice for HR translations

  • In-house team of native speakers

Human resources is an area of a company with numerous interfaces, both within the company itself and with the public. This can result in a wide variety of communication challenges. In a multinational company, this often means that the HR department has to produce documents not just in German, but also in English.

We are experienced in dealing with the specific requirements of different types of HR documents. We will gladly translate both your recruiting materials and your internal communications. We can also support you in the translation of news and social media materials.

We can support your employer branding, recruitment and employee retention initiatives. If you would like us to translate HR documents, training materials and leadership development content, we are looking forward to hearing from you. Our services are as diverse as your HR projects.

Translating legal documents presents a particular challenge. Translation and linguistic skill must be very sophisticated in order to deliver translations of the highest quality and precision. An experienced translator who is well versed in various legal systems and familiar with the specific terminology should carry out the accurate translation of legal documents. This ensures that the meaning is conveyed precisely. In short, it requires a specialist. We will gladly assist you with the translation of legal documents, including securities prospectuses, audit reports, articles of association, contracts, general terms and conditions or court judgements.

Translation of Contracts, Audit Reports or T&C

In international companies, parties from different language regions must often agree on written conditions of use, purchase, lease or cooperation. Only one version of a document can be legally binding, but legal translations are still a valuable method of communication for parties to know exactly what they are getting into and in what position they are to negotiate. Companies create more transparency for themselves or others with a professional translation and open up to the international market.

If you always read contracts and terms and conditions thoroughly, then you know how important it is to be able to understand these documents in your own language. Translators of legal texts have to not only understand the specialist terminology in the source text, but also transfer it to the target language in a way that is understandable. We guarantee the quality of our translations by only using native speakers of the target language who are very familiar with legal texts. Our service always includes an editing stage to ensure consistency, correctness and a high linguistic level. Thanks to our internal and external resources, the team is always informed about up-to-date terminology and your stylistic preferences.

If you have contracts with international clients or partners or you offer products overseas, it is worth having at least one English translation of the relevant documents. If you have a legal document in another language, we will support you with a high-quality specialist translation.
