We speak the same language(s) as your customers



Guaranteed quality for your translations

If your business is internationally active and your target groups speak a number of different languages, we can ensure that you, your products and your services are properly understood. Whatever country your customers are in – we build bridges to enable communication. We don’t just replace English words with foreign ones, we take pride in ensuring that readers in the target countries will respond the way you want them to. A translation is not just a collection of foreign words.

Experience. Expertise. Quality.

For over 35 years, our translation business, Alan Halls & Partner, has provided high-quality translations. We aim to transmit the tonality of the source language while monitoring the expectations of the target group. All our translators are native speakers of the target language. Our translations do not sound or feel like translations and the translators have knowledge of the subject matter. Our state-of-the-art software tools help us deliver consistently good work efficiently.

Alan Halls & Partner: adding value to your business


Professional. Efficient. DIN registered.

Our customers come in all sizes – multinational enterprises, two-man businesses, advertising agencies and everything in between. As professional translators, we can guarantee that your texts will be translated by native speakers with many years‘ experience, and the results will be of a high standard.

We can process a broad range of original data formats: Microsoft Office up to version 2016 (Windows) and 2011 for Mac (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio), HTML, RTF, TXT, QuarkXpress, InDesign, XML (often used in CMS systems) and many more. Please ask about other formats.

We translate individual files and complete websites in their original formats. DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, INDD, IDML, XML, HTML or QXP – you will receive the translations in the same format that you sent us (unless it was PDF!). If requested, we can download a complete site from the web and quote you on that basis.

If you also need additional services like DTP or web design, we can put you in touch with professionals in these areas as well.

Key languages we translate into and from

German | English (UK & US) | French | Dutch | Czech | Slovak | Russian | Polish | Hungarian | Slovenian | Serbian | Greek | Turkish | Portuguese | Spanish | Italian | Danish | Swedish | Norwegian | and more

We concentrate mainly on EU languages. If the language you need is not in this list, please contact us. Our network of colleagues, built up over 35 years, gives us access to many more options.

Key points that benefit you…

  • DIN-based quality

    This is quality you can rely on: we work in compliance with and are registered to DIN EN ISO 17100.

  • One contact for all languages

    To save time and make things easier: talk to one person at Alan Halls & Partner irrespective of the language or languages required.

  • Native speakers of the target language

    No exceptions: all our translations are crafted by native speakers of the target language.

  • Linguistic consistency

    We apply your business’s language style in the manner most appropriate to the target languages. In this way we maintain tonality and consistency.

  • All standard file formats

    We aim to be compatible with customers‘ work methods and use Windows and Mac OS. We process all standard Office and DTP formats.

  • Four decades of experience? Nearly.

    We have gathered a fair amount of experience. Since 1982, we have been working for industrial clients in a wide range of sectors. Our customers appreciate our dependability.

CAT food?

Computer Aided Translation, or CAT is comparable with Computer Aided Design or CAD. Modern CAD software has not replaced draughtsmen and -women, but it helps them to be more efficient and cut costs. Translating with CAT tools is a similar development. Our tools store every sentence, headline and bullet point in our customer-specific databases in the source and target languages. Subsequent projects for the same customer are compared automatically with the database and the translator only translates the changes. Feeding the CAT saves you time and money. Consistent re-use of your company’s terminology and style can thus be guaranteed over years. If you don’t change something, we won’t either.
