“Globish” is gaining ground but that is no excuse for not reaching out to native speakers who are here to help. Getting your ideas across effectively in another language requires previous knowledge of the subject matter and in-depth research of terminology and context. Misinterpreted words or expressions taken out of context can lead to serious misunderstandings or can lead to disengagement of the target audienceThat’s why Colibri Connect’s language experts ensure that each and every job has been fully adapted to the client’s needs and their target audience, be it during an interpretation assignment or whilst translating or editing a text. We understand the underlying diversity in the methods of constructing, organising and conveying knowledge in our fields of specialisation.

If you are seeking a high-quality translation, a subject-specific editor,a copy-editor, or any other specialised language solution, Colibri Connect can help.

MEET THE TEAM

Expert knowledge adds value to a translated or edited text.

We are specialised translators, proofreaders, editors, interpreters and trainers.

We offer you a wide range of high quality language services to help you and your organisation bridge the gap between varying linguistic and cultural differences. On every assignment, our native translators and proofreaders avoid the traces of the ‘unfamiliar’ wording typically found in a translation. As specialists in our fields, we can also ensure that the copy corresponds to regional cultural norms, style, flow and diction.
