Translating for you

OTSOTS is a passionate team of translation professionals in Sheffield, providing specialist translation and linguistic services in line with your needs: a local team of experts delivering the quality you need – on time.

Over the years, we have impressed our clients with our work so much that they keep coming back for more – in fact around 95% of our business comes from repeat clients.

We understand that you do not simply want an accurate translation; you want a target text that is written in the correct register and style for its intended purpose and that sounds completely natural and not translated – something we believe only the best translators at native-speaker level selected in line with their area of specialism can provide.

We primarily translate from German, French and Dutch into English, as well as English into German. However, we also have a comprehensive network of trusted freelance translators covering a wide range of European and Asian languages.

Unlike many translation agencies, which are often run by Marketing and Business Executives with relatively little linguistic expertise, Osborne Translation Services is managed by a specialist translator, Mark Osborne, who is passionate about translation and has been working in the industry for many years, both in Germany and in the UK.

You can always rest assured that your translation has been carefully proofread by our experienced in-house team, who are consistently up-to-date with client preferences. All of our translators also act as reviewers, so we guarantee that your reviewer is equally familiar with all of the respective linguistic and customer requirements.

We use the latest translation technology to save you money: we gradually build up databases of past documents for each of our clients. This ensures consistency and saves time, and we pass on the cost benefits directly to you.

Your project will always be handled by a single Project Manager, providing the best possible, customised service. As our business relationship develops, we will also assign a Lead Translator to your account to provide any specific linguistic support.

We would be happy to provide a free, no-obligation quote in line with your individual specifications. To find out more please click here to visit our website, click here to make a general enquiry, contact us at or call us on 0114 223 8622.
