Linguistico » About Us




First-Class Language Translation Service

Linguistico offers clients a first-class language translation service with a focus on quality, efficiency, understanding and value for money.

Linguistico sets itself apart from its competitors through our ability to really specialise and the use of industry-experienced translators, our commercial insight, attention to detail, accurate language translator service and stringent project management methodologies. Rather than hand out projects as they come in, we carefully assign your project to a team that is best qualified to handle your project with precision and depth.

We offer a complete digital translation services solution, meaning all work can be handled online, making our service simple and convenient.

Through experience in providing clear language advice to worldwide corporate entities, we truly understand the importance of accuracy, deadlines, confidentiality and value.

Core Industries

Linguistico’s national translation services are regularly engaged by the Legal, Healthcare, Engineering, Mining, Financial and Government sectors.

Our personal service ensures that your language projects are managed with skill, care and attention from start to finish so that your personnel can focus on their own work safe in the knowledge that we are working alongside you.

Team Consistency

We build teams around our clients so that you are always dealing with the same project manager and the same translation team. That way, we learn about your business and your translation requirements. This puts us in a better position to assign the right people for the job, every time.
