We speak the same language as your customers
Guaranteed quality for your translations
If your business is internationally active and your target groups speak a number of different languages, I can ensure that you, your products and your services are properly understood. Whatever country your customers are in – I build bridges to enable communication. I don’t just replace words in one language with foreign ones, I take pride in ensuring that readers in the target country will respond the way you want them to. A translation is not just a collection of foreign words.
Experience. Expertise. Quality.
For over 40 years, this translation business, Alan Halls & Partner, has provided high-quality translations. I aim to transmit the tonality of the source language while monitoring the expectations of the target group. My translations do not sound or feel like translations because I also have knowledge of the subject matter. State-of-the-art software tools help me deliver consistently good work efficiently.
Rapid response times, high quality and fair prices? Alan Halls & Partner can deliver. Send us an email or use the contact form. Send us sample files in their original format and your requirements and we will quote you within hours.

Alan Halls & Partner: adding value to your business
Our customers come in all sizes – multinational enterprises, two-man businesses, advertising agencies and everything in between. As a professional translator, I can guarantee that your texts will be translated to a high standard.
I can process a broad range of original data formats: Microsoft Office up to the latest version (Windows) and Office 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.
I 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, I 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, I can put you in touch with professionals in these areas as well.
If the language you need is not English, please contact us. Through my network of colleagues, built up over 40 years, I can often provide contact details for other languages.[/cs_text]

Four decades of experience? More.
I have gathered considerable experience. Since 1982, I have been working for industrial clients in a wide range of sectors. My customers appreciate my dependability.
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. These 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.
