Happy 25th Birthday The Language Factory!

TLF Birthday Cake

Last week we celebrated our 25th birthday! In true TLF style the team were very happy to consume both a birthday-themed chocolate cake and a gluten-free one! Our owner, Shona Lockhart, took the occasion to share her thoughts with us;

In the past 25 years we’ve grown from a small team working out of my kitchen, through three different offices, to the larger but close-knit team we are today. I’m enormously proud of what we’ve achieved whilst always maintaining our focus on delivering excellent customer service and quality translations to all our clients.

Hilary Picken, our General Manager, added, “Over the past 25 years in the industry, we’ve managed thousands of projects and gathered a lot of specialist experience. Our clients frequently testify that our quality, communication and ability to turn around projects quickly is why they trust us with their translations again and again. This is something we’re very proud of.

The Language Factory is also very proud to have given back to charity projects over the years, supporting business women in developing countries through Oxfam’s Enterprise Development Programme and micro business start-ups through The Microloan Foundation.

We may not be a London translation agency or even one of the biggest agencies but we’re still within easy commute of the city and we can compete with the best of them. If you’ve got some translation work coming up, why not get in touch with our team on +44 1727 862722 and give us a whirl. Don’t forget we can give you a leg up in times of need and whether you’re a big or small company our service remains the same. We don’t discriminate, even if you’re a lefty!


"I was very impressed with how quickly TLF could meet our short-turnaround timescale on our project. It meant that we could keep to our client's deadlines and the project could start on-time."
