English to Latin Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in Latin and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to Latin and Latin to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from Latin: Arabic ↔ Latin; Spanish ↔ Latin; French ↔ Latin; German ↔ Latin; Italian ↔ Latin; Portuguese ↔ Latin; Russian ↔ Latin; Japanese ↔ Latin; Chinese ↔ Latin; Hindi ↔ Latin; to name but the most popular... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
Latin Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
Latin to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available Latin to English language translation resources – including experienced Latin language translators (native-speaking Latin if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a Latin language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having Latin as a native language may not 'translate into' Latin language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Latin and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate Latin language resources is what we do! (Refer to our Latin translation assignment process for information on our Latin translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the Latin language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to Latin translation sources of information that we have confidence in.

The Latin Language Landscape
Latin is an Italic language, historically spoken in Latium and Ancient Rome. Through Roman conquest, Latin spread throughout the Mediterranean and a large part of Europe. It later evolved into such languages as French, Italian, Romanian, Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan. It was also the international language of science and scholarship in central and western Europe until the 17th century. There are two varieties of Latin: Classical Latin, the literary dialect used in poetry and prose, and Vulgar Latin, the form of the language spoken by ordinary people, which later diverged into the various Romance languages. After the rise of the Catholic Church, Medieval Latin, the ecclesiastical language of the Catholic Church, became the lingua franca of educated classes in the West.
Vulgar Latin was preserved as a spoken language in much of Europe after the decline of the Roman Empire, and by the 9th century diverged into the various Romance languages. Around the 16th century, the popularity of Medieval Latin began to decline.
Classical Latin lives on in the form of Ecclesiastical Latin used for edicts and papal bulls issued by the Catholic Church. Much Latin vocabulary is used in science, academia, and law. Classical Latin, the literary language of the late Republic and early Empire, is still taught in many primary, grammar, and secondary schools, often combined with Greek in the study of Classics, though its role has diminished since the early 20th century. The Latin alphabet, together with its modern variants such as the English, Spanish and French alphabets, is the most widely used alphabet in the world.
