About English

English is one of the most widespread and widely spoken languages in the world. Its history dates back to the 5th century when three tribes – the Angles, the Saxons and the Jutes – crossed the North Sea from what is now Denmark and Northern Germany.

Today there are countless variants of English, with the main differences being attributed to location and affecting vocabulary, grammar, idioms, dialects, etc. The main variants are American English, British English, Australian/New Zealand English, Canadian English, Caribbean English and South African English.

Sandberg translates primarily into British English, but also offers American English.

Our English language services

Translation

English translation is the core of our offering. We can work in any translation environment or file format.

Machine translation post-editing

We can bring machine-translated content up to either usable or human translator level.

Revision

We can revise our own translation in-house, or you can ask for a revision of a third-party translation.

Terminology management

Allow us to maintain your English terminology resources or create them from scratch.

Copy adaptation

We rework your copy so it really hits home with your target geo, for example from American English to British English.

Transcreation

We offer English transcreation (creative translation) for when a simple translation just won’t do.

Multilingual SEO

When a website needs greater visibility in search results, we help by localising the target keywords and optimising the digital content.

Market-specific copywriting

Country-specific content that aligns perfectly with local customs, celebrations or cultural events.

ISO-certified

Sandberg was the first company in the UK to achieve both ISO 17100 and ISO 18587 certification. Whether the translation is done by our in-house experts or one of our carefully sourced freelancers, you can be confident that a translation produced by Sandberg will hit the mark.

Style guide

Sandberg has its own comprehensive style guide for British English to which all our translators adhere in their work, unless a client-specific or project-specific style guide takes precedence.
