Our main subject areas include:
Empirical Social Research
Additionally, we supply
translations of all text types used in universities and research institutes, including:
CVs and letters of application

Minutes of meetings
Stylistic Editing by native speakers
Do you prefer to draft your foreign-language lectures and articles (English or French) yourself, and have them edited by a native speaker for idiomatic correctness and fluency? We will be happy to edit your texts, checking e.g. word choice, use of prepositions, syntax, punctuation, and in particular ensuring idiomatic quality and the natural flow appropriate to your target language. It's vital that what you have to say comes across without the irritating distraction of a creaky translation. In a competitive world, your communications will be at a considerable advantage if journal editors, reviewers and conference audiences can follow your arguments instantly. For that to be possible, your text needs not merely the terminology, but the characteristic idiomatic structures of the target language.
Our company assigns this editorial work exclusively to academic colleagues, all with a doctorate in your field or a related one, and many concurrently seeing their own scientific communications through to publication. Your text will thus be edited by an academic familiar with the relevant discourse and terminology - and working in his or her own mother-tongue.
