Tom Walters, The Dairy Agency
The team at AST Language Services were great at responding to our request and coming back to us with the options available in a timely manner. Our translation project was completed quickly and was correct first time - resulting in a happy client at the end of the job. I would recommend AST Language Services to businesses looking for a diligent and friendly team to partner with on any future translation projects.


Janet Cordner, Jackson Reece
The team at AST Language Services are extremely efficient at delivering accurate translation of a wide range of languages. I urgently needed translation of Spanish, Arabic and Canadian French text for a project. Highly recommend AST Language Services. Professional and fabulous to work with!


Daryl Willett, Sirenum
Professional, Responsive and Friendly. I recently worked with AST and they were quick to respond & offered competitive rates vs. other companies. I picked AST as we shared similar visions with regards to work ethics, company policies and being able to meet the deadline. I was extremely impressed with the translation and surprised that they were able to deliver such a large project in a short space of time, ensuring that I meet my deadlines.
I would strongly recommend using AST - they use native speaker translators which helps when trying to understand your audience and is just a pleasant experience. You won't regret working with them.
