AxioTrad is a specialist translation agency that collaborates across an extensive network of freelance translators and interpreters who are selected for their skills and knowledge in their chosen field.

Founded by an engineer, an architect and a linguist specialising in law, AxioTrad’s unique DNA gives us a sophisticated understanding of specialised translation.

Translation is a difficult art form that requires not only a mastery of the rules of translation but specific knowledge of the subject matter in question.

We have all seen translations that were linguistically accurate but full of technical errors and thus difficult to fully understand.

Conversely, we have also read technically detailed translations containing mistranslations and approximations that betray the author’s intended meaning.

Thus, the ambition of the founders of AxioTrad is to provide translations that are linguistically exact without sacrificing either detail or quality.

After all, what endorses the quality of a good translation if not the reader’s failure to notice that it is, in fact, a translation?
