Pros

  • Composed of over 5000 native linguists globally
  • Offers translation for over 100 languages

Cons

  • Customer service needs improvement

Wordsburg offers professional language translation services for both individuals and business clients, with a network of native speakers of over a hundred languages.

They’ve done a lot of translation work for a lot of industries, like government departments and NGOs, banking and finance, travel, legal and corporate, health, engineering, and even education.

They operate both in Singapore and the UK, and they offer services such as translation, transcription, and interpretation among others. 

We like that they have a large number of native speakers working for them, an assurance that they’re capable of localising important documents and anything you need to have translated.

Another thing we like about them is their dedication to their translation services. On their website, you can even find useful blogs that have tips and guides for getting the best translation you need.

After reaching out to their sales team and negotiating about the type of translation needed, clients can also discuss if they need a particular type of certification.

Each transaction is assigned a project manager that oversees the entire translation process, making sure that the right process is implemented so projects are finished on time.

Apart from their remarkable service, we also like their dedicated quality assurance and localisation engineers. It’s just too bad that their customer service sometimes falls short.

Pros

  • Economical and efficient
  • Short turnaround time
  • 6 months post-project support

Cons

  • Limited number of languages available 

Letter Crafts offers translation for over 80 languages, and they do translations for both personal and business documents.

We’re pretty confident in their services after seeing that they’ve expanded from Singapore to Hong Kong, India, Japan, UAE, and even the UK. That’s generally a good indication of a company’s success with its clients.

Because of the quality of their services, they’ve catered to global brands and individuals alike. Some of these include Changi Singapore, DBS, Deloitte, National University of Singapore, Ubisoft, and many more.

They carry out a variety of translation services, like certified translation and notarisation, website and app translation and localisation, and technical and IT translation, to name a few.

We’ve also noticed that a lot of the feedback they’ve gotten usually commends them for their quick turnaround time and translation accuracy.

Even if there are other translation agencies that can translate more languages, we think that Letter Crafts still remains in the same tier given the superb quality of their work.

They have a straightforward process, beginning from getting a quote, then the translation, the submission, and post-translation support.

We find this to be a highly efficient process, especially for those rushing to get particular documents done in a short amount of time.

On top of that, they offer 6 months post project support for all of their clients. That sounds like a great deal for us.

Pros

  • Wide Range of Languages and Professional Translators
  • Fast and Efficient Process
  • Competitive and Cost-Effective Rates

Cons

  • Lack of Specialized Services

Translated Right is a professional translation services company that was founded in 2018.

What we like about them is that they boast a large network of over 5000+ native-speaking professional translators who cover more than 50+ languages!

Making them available to cater to diverse translation needs and ensures that clients can find translators with industry-specific expertise.

Unlike others, they take pride in their streamlined workflow, making the translation process quick and efficient. Thus, clients can easily get a free quotation by sending their source files to an account representative.

But what made us recommend them is that fact that they offer competitive rates for their translation services.

Their fast and efficient platform allows clients to receive translations at a fraction of the time and cost compared to other providers.

Also, they provide volume discounts and offer bespoke enterprise packages, making their services cost-effective for clients with larger translation needs.

Potential clients with specialized translation needs may need to clarify with Translated Right first if they can accommodate specific requirements as none are listed on their website.

Pros

  • Singapore Excellence Award recipient for 2011 and 2012
  • Member of Association of Accredited Advertising Agents Singapore
  • Offers competitive pricing
  • Large pool of translators

Cons

  • Takes a while to respond to queries 

WhizWordz has been in business for over 20 years, starting with only Chinese to English translations. At present, they are now one of Singapore’s leading translation agencies.

They now offer translation for multiple languages, specialising in various industries from business and marketing to IT and computer technology.

What we like about them is how each industry specialisation has its own team of dedicated native language translators, so everything is as accurate as possible.

On top of that, they also have a wide array of services that ranges from transcreation, translation, and interpretation, to transcription, subtitling, and vetting.

We also find it really helpful how their personalised services also involve referring clients to other institutions such as printing and design companies if necessary, delegating whatever is needed to give the required output.

Much of the general feedback we got about them consisted of clients swearing to return for their services, in addition to a number of repeat customers they have established through the years.

Moreover, they also offer competitive pricing without compromising the quality of their work. We believe that’s one of the things that makes them a well-established translation agency.

We definitely recommend WhizWordz for  complex projects, given that they seem to have proven themselves and their quality of work over these years.

Pros

  • Certified with ISO 9001
  • DIN EN 15038 Certification
  • Has over 1,500 translators

Cons

  • Doesn’t always respond within 30 minutes as they claim

Lyric Labs began their translation business in 2010, and since then, they’ve expanded to 45 locations and served over 8,400 clients. At present, they have over a thousand translators.

What we find of particular interest about them is how they’ve been able to establish a strong clientele despite being one of the relatively newer translation agencies in Singapore.

They have the usual services offered, but they also cater to certified translation for ICA and MOM, as well as translations for hand books, and safety and training materials.

We’re not exactly sure about the exact number of languages they do translations for since it isn’t stated on their website, but we’re ensured about the quality of their grammatical accuracy and localisation.

While they do claim to respond within 30 minutes after placing an inquiry through their website, this information may be a bit erroneous. 

However, we do find that they uphold the quality of their work. With experienced translators and a strict quality assurance in place, they do deliver accurate translations.

Their translators are also categorised into their own subject matter expertise, so we definitely think clients can be assured that their documents and respective files are handled by proficient individuals.

Pros

  • Local Singaporean translation company that has a strong command for localisation
  • Provides discounts for long-term customers
  • Highest click rate on Google in Singapore

Cons

  • Some remarks from a few past clients about rates being on the high side
  • Faulty site map on their website

Raffles is a company that has been doing translation services for over 20 years, and they currently do translations for over 100 languages.

Their services include translation and transcreation, certified translation, interpretation, and other translation-related services like website localisation, voiceovers, dubbing, etc. 

For their translation services, it varies widely from financial translation to life science translation. All these are done by translators that are well-versed in their respective industries.

What we like about Raffles Translation is their emphasis on their quality control process, to which they boast about the right combination of the right people and the right system.

We were quite surprised to see how their quality control process goes, from analysing a project to creating glossaries, and to after-sales service, it’s more tedious than the others that we’ve seen so far.

This diligent and strict procedure just might be what makes them another one of Singapore’s leading translation service providers. Plus they have the highest click rate on Google in Singapore.

On top of that, their group of clients include some of the largest companies in Singapore, such as Hewitt Associates and Singapore Telecommunications Ltd, and we do think that’s very telling of their service’s standards and how well they uphold it.

Furthermore, they have had extensive experience when it comes to localization studies to ensure that companies and clients specifically striving for particular services are approached in a way that is research and evidence-based.
