German to English technical and commercial translation


“The team at LKT consistently delivers excellent translations for life, ETH Zurich’s quarterly internal magazine. They work on a wide range of German source texts – from opinion pieces and profiles to news articles featuring technical scientific content – and turn them into engaging English copy. We really appreciate having direct contact with in-house translators, and their professionalism and flexibility has also helped us out of a scheduling jam more than once.”

Anna Foch, ETH Zürich

“Working with Louise and the team at LKT is an absolute dream for me as a freelance translator. It is so rewarding to collaborate with a company that really cares about what they do and I love the fact that everyone there shares my high quality standards. I always have all the information I need to produce translations that are perfectly in line with the customer’s requirements and I know I will receive a reply to any questions I may have or assistance with technical issues in no time if required. The best part is that everyone is so friendly in their communications – I am always made to feel like I am part of the team.”

All that, plus I’ve never had a single issue with a late payment or similar … they really are the best!”

“I really enjoy working with Louise and her friendly team of linguists. Project handovers are clear and thorough, and the in-house revisers have sent me helpful feedback on my work. Louise regularly gets in touch to enquire about my capacity, ask about new projects and even to inform me of training opportunities for a software package that I’ve started using for one of LKT’s clients. The collaborative approach adopted by Louise and her colleagues is very valuable to me as a freelancer and beneficial in my working relationship with LKT.”
