What should you translate?

Technical translations force translation agencies to manage each environment in different ways, according to the type of translations, that could be a certified translation, a curriculum, a handbook or a web site.

Technical translations


The translation of a web site needs procedures, instruments and skills that are different from the ones used for the translation of a MS Word document.

Our translation agency has developed translation services customized on every single translation environment.

Here there are some kind of technical translation that we typically manage:

Website translations

Brochure translations

PDF translations

Document translations

Handbook translations

App translations

In which languages do you want translate your text?

The secret of a perfect multilingual translation is the unbounded passion that The Foreign Friend has for all the languages and cultures of the world

Multilingual translation


A multilingual translation let you speak the language of several targets, with the chance to multiply the number of customers.

We recruited a team of about 3,500 professional translators who reside in their native countries, so we are able to produce translation in more than 50 language combinations.

…And in which jargons?

In order to offer a professional translation service, a translation agency must have specific skills in the medical, legal, tourist and financial field.

Professional translations


For very technical texts, in addition to the languages, it’s important to know also the jargons (for example, legalese, medical, pharmaceutical, etc.).

The Foreign Friend adopted an exclusive recruitment system that – in addition to the common translators with an intermediate linguistic background (translators with middle and low prices, easily to resell) – allows our customers to choose translators with a technical background and/or work experience (lawyers, doctors, engineers, etc.), if they need translation intended for the so called “subject matter experts”.

Here you can find our areas of specialization:

Commercial translations

Financial translations

Automotive translations

Medical translations

Software translations

Food & Wine translation
