No more waiting for a quote

After 12 months of development work, we are introducing the world’s first online language services quotation system. Fasttranslator’s system recognises more than 40 file formats and takes into account repeated words. You don’t pay for repeated text with Fasttranslator. Not every translation is urgent, of course, and we offer significant discounts if there is a generous deadline to complete your translation.

We specialise in fast-turnaround translation services in all subject areas and all languages. Our offices in Europe, the United States and Canada, combined with time zone management, enable us to provide language services much faster than our competitors. We aim to be a strategic partner for all businesses, big or small, that want to go global. We offer 150 different languages at rates that drop over time.
