Freelance Translators

The key to a good translation is matching the content and subject-matter of your document with a professional translator with appropriate experience. Over many years, AST has built up an extensive team of professional mother-tongue freelance translators and in-country partners, offering an extremely wide variety of subject-specialisms and language combinations.

Our 500+ translators all have at least 3 years experience. As well as being accredited members of the UK and European translator associations, for acceptance onto our database, each one is asked to carry out a series of translation tests and is then trialled for 6 months with different types of assignments.
