What we do.

From classrooms to boardrooms, we make copy come to life, making websites and tag lines compelling to your clients.

Our linguists don’t just speak a long list of languages; they are well versed in a wide range of industries too, from creative advertising to education and automotive. With passion and a smile, we go beyond the word-for-word translation to make sure that your client really gets it – whatever the context, whatever the continent.

How we do it.

A small, flexible agency with an extensive network of highly skilled linguists, we are one of Europe’s leading creative translation specialists.

We combine a friendly, approachable attitude with rigorous quality assurance and great project management. Add our backbone of tirelessly enthusiastic and highly experienced translators, copywriters, interpreters, transcribers and proofreaders, and you’ll see how we can deliver quality work that sparkles – every time.

Heading up the team.

Meet the driving forces behind Living Word.

A linguistics graduate and a former graphic designer, we have a wealth of agency experience between us. With a shared passion for all things linguistic, we work with you to make sure that your story is not only delivered, but makes an impact – globally.

    Profile

    "A linguistics graduate, I have always been fascinated by language and the way it evolves over time and according to socio-political contexts. After working at various translation agencies, I took my experience and entrepreneurial spirit and created a company of my own. I am a recently converted roller derby enthusiast and currently like to spend as much of my spare time as possible indulging my obsession with quad skating. This perhaps goes some way towards describing the fearless, determined mindset that has pushed me to make Living Word what it is today."

    "With a background in graphic design, I worked in a creative environment for more than a decade. This has proven useful at Living Word in our work with clients in creative industries, as I have a good insight into their processes and mindset. I appreciate good aesthetics in all things, and have a special interest in mid-century, modernist furniture design and fashion."
