About Keytext

About us

Keytext Translation is all about talent. It always has been and always will be. In an age and industry where technology is helping businesses like ours to be ever more efficient, it is easy to forget the need for talented human beings. But we haven’t.

That’s why we spend our valuable time seeking out the most gifted writers and translators on planet earth. We also pay our freelancers a tad more than your average agency, not just because we like them, but because it helps us to attract the very best talent. We also feel they deserve it, and so do our clients.

Our team of gifted translators and copywriters now provides high quality translation, transcreation, copywriting and editing services in over 30 languages, and we’re still growing.

Our aims and values

Although we might look like any other translation or copywriting service, we actually operate quite differently. Unlike other language service providers, our linguists collaborate together to achieve better results, with every nuance of every phrase written using the best possible terminology and style.

We don’t just proofread your texts, we discuss, compare and contrast them to exceed your expectations. This not only improves quality, but also provides our translators and writers with a crucial sense of collaboration.

Our aim is to equip businesses with the linguistic tools they need to communicate clearly with their target audience. As such, we also utilise the latest translation technologies to create efficiency and accuracy.
