Translation Services

We have been providing professional translation services, carried out by real humans, for nearly a decade, predominantly for some of the UK’s largest solicitors & legal industry.  As part of expert witness company, Laird Assessors, we found that many of our clients were struggling with the multitude of foreign languages spoken throughout the UK.  

Ever keen to solve problems for our clients, we started by employing a Polish lady to assist with a large insurance fed solicitors who dealt predominantly with Polish policy holders.  We love doing a great job, so it wasn’t long before we were asked to translate other languages & Translate Hive (or Laird Languages as it was known then) started to grow.

Legal Translation Services

The legal industry mainly instruct us to translate legal documents such as insurance claim forms, medical records, witness statements, expert witness reports, immigration documents, etc so absolute accuracy is essential.  For added peace of mind legal translations are provided with a Certificate of Declaration from the certified expert translator.  Our translators are NRPSI registered; the National Register of Public Service Interpreters, a public register of professional, qualified & accountable interpreters.

Business Translation Services

Having a background in accurate translations, the subject is inconsequential to us, which led us into providing translations for business. Many firms realise the importance of translating their website into their client’s most common languages, easily expanding their reach.

We translate technical documents, product or service instructions and manuals particularly for exporters and importers, keen to have their documents translated accurately into multiple languages.  We translate professional contracts, council forms, pretty much anything that will help a business.  No documents are too small; we’ve translated menus, marriage certificates, even social media posts.
