We provide a quick and efficient service to deliver perfect copy on a variety of topics and in a variety of languages to give you, your company or organisation the edge in your communication efforts.


A translation glossary is a collection of terms with translations, definitions, uses, and associated notes. It is often required for specialised subjects and we have the necessary skills to deal with these disciplines.


We provide simultaneous and consecutive interpreting in all the official languages of South Africa, as well as in a number of European languages. In addition, we provide whispered simultaneous mode interpretation. 


A translation glossary is a collection of terms with translations, definitions, usage examples, and associated notes. When you upload a document for translation on the quotation request form, you may wish to include your in-house translation glossary if your translation includes special terminology, or if you want to maintain consistent terminology across a larger set of documents.

Glossaries are often required for specialised subjects and we have the necessary skills and experience to deal with these more complex disciplines. Multilanguage Translation & Interpretation Services could extract the terms and phrases for you, write the definitions and then do the translations. This service allows for concordance, smoothness and standardisation for all future projects on a particular topic for a particular client.

We add value by searching all available glossaries for the terminology identified in your documents. If such terms exist, we show them to you, helping you keep your term translations consistent with those of other translators.

We have, over the years, supervised and managed the compilation of multilingual term lists and glossaries, providing definitions in various subjects including:

  • Health sciences,
  • Veterinary sciences,
  • Economics,
  • Statistics,
  • Environmental impact studies,
  • Social Anthropology,
  • Geology,
  • Academic vocabulary, 
  • Law, and 
  • Municipal governance.

Our glossaries are made available to our freelance translators working on a particular topic. When time permits, terms from the English source texts are extracted and translated before a project commences to ensure consistency of terminology in a particular domain.
