Quarterly news, views and Nordic insight from STP

Nordic translation services – flexibility as standard

We understand that all clients have different needs. That’s why we aim to provide a flexible, friendly and highly professional service for all our customers’ translation and localisation work into English, Danish, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish. We cover virtually all text types and subject areas, and we use whatever software it takes to get the job done.


"Since 2010, STP has become our primary subcontractor for Nordic languages. STP’s focus of serving translation companies, ability to accommodate diverse requirements, and willingness to adopt new technology, coupled with attentive project management and, most importantly, qualified translators makes the company an invaluable resource."
Mid-sized US language service provider, 2014 (STP’s third-largest client in 2013)
"STP has been a trustworthy partner for many years, always delivering quality translations and excellent service. Over the years, STP has helped us to solve both difficult and delicate assignments."
Large Swedish LSP, 2014 (STP’s 6th largest client in 2013)
"I have sent SFÖ what is known in the trade as “a glowing reference”, and wanted to use the opportunity to also tell you how consistently delighted we have been with the quality of your work over the years – both the quality of the translation, and also your project management and customer service."
Medium-sized UK translation agency, 2008

Exceptional people; first-class service

Our most valuable asset is our large in-house team of highly qualified and experienced translators, account linguists and project managers. They are skilfully led by our management team who have a combined 70 years’ vocational and commercial experience in the translation industry. We have a comprehensive staff training programme and commitment to continuing professional development to ensure that we keep up with developments in our industry.

Translation technology experts

We see modern hardware and software not only as a necessity, but as a major enabler and competitive advantage for our company. We have our own comprehensive, sophisticated and fully integrated project management system, and we continually invest in the most up-to-date computer-assisted translation (CAT) technology. We also take every opportunity to optimise our administrative and language production tasks using both off-the-shelf and bespoke software.


Committed to quality

We and our clients alike benefit from the well-developed and comprehensive production workflows and processes that we have in place. These are underpinned by our staff training programme, our bespoke project management software and our ISO 17100 certification and associated quality management system. We endorse the codes of conduct of several leading industry associations and adhere to these professionally and commercially.

Pride in the profession

We interact with thousands of translators and client contacts every year. We also play an active role in many industry associations and at their events, and we have a strong engagement with academia. We enjoy staying in touch and keeping all stakeholders informed about developments at STP.
