About us

About Papillon Translations

We offer transcription and interpretation services, in all of our 150 languages, and SDL Trados.

As native speakers our professional translators have first-hand knowledge of the target markets. This is not only important for accuracy but also to be able to provide in-depth knowledge of local and cultural influences. This also ensures our translations acknowledge the target audience and sensitivity of the local environment, that may not be obvious to the casual translator.

Translation is a vital tool in bridging the gap between cultures, and this can have a very positive effect on your business. It’s not just large, international corporations that benefit from professional translation services. In fact, more and more smaller businesses are looking to open their doors to international exchange, and business from clients overseas.

Newcastle University

Papillon acknowledges its increasing role with worldwide markets, and the importance of working with the community it serves. Papillon recognises the unique diverse talents of the students studying at Newcastle University. They are highly motivated, intelligent, professional individuals who have exceptional intellectual ability, and are keen to develop further real life experience.

Papillon offers the students the chance to gain the work experience they require to go into the work place. Working with each student, Papillon interviews, assesses, and agrees terms and conditions of full freelance translator requirements. The students are paid exactly the same as all our regular translators; that is to say above the industry standard. We want our exceptional translators to stay with us, so we treat them very well.

Papillon Translations is very proud to work with the students of Newcastle University.
