About Us

Who We Are

 

At Kwintessential we pride ourselves on being a solution-focused language service provider. We know that whatever your language needs, no 2 projects are ever the same, and we will work with you to provide a customised service guaranteed to hit the mark.

 

Our company was founded on the principle of trying to help our clients to bridge the communication gap and to enable them to spread their message on a global scale. Whether you are a private individual or a large multinational corporation, we are here to help!

International Communication

Our History

 

Kwintessential was conceptualised in 2003 by three partners keen to support businesses through the challenges of globalization and internationalization.

 

They foresaw the future demand for language services and solutions as well as culturally and globally savvy insight into business functions.

 

The company started life offering language lessons, cultural awareness training, translation and interpreting. It expanded to encompass further key products such as website design, desktop publishing, conference interpreting and transcription.

 

Our humble beginnings were on a living room table in Hounslow (Middlesex) before upgrading to a bedroom in Croydon. Nowadays we have grown to have offices in Central London, Somerset, New York, Switzerland and South Africa.

 

Every day we are growing in size and experience, and we look forward to seeing where our quest for globalisation will take us next!

Our Services

 

Our solutions focus on two areas:

1) Translation, Localisation and Written Language
2) Interpreting and Spoken Language

These areas are divided across a range of services, including:

We understand that your language needs are often more complex and multi-faceted than a simple translation, and our aim is to use the right combination of services to provide you with the perfect solution, whatever your goals may be.

Our Team

 

Kwintessential’s team in the UK can be split into the following:

 

  • Sales Staff: Our experienced sales staff have 1 simple objective – to look after our clients. They ensure that they understand your needs and will provide a proposal for your tailored language solution. They are happy to provide free quotes on request, or to help with any other questions you may have.

 

  • Project Managers: Our project managers are experts in overseeing language projects to successful completion. They carefully manage the process of arranging a translation, providing an interpreter or getting a brochure translated, printed and delivered to your door. Using their knowledge of our database of linguists, they will ensure that your brief is followed to the letter and that the final outcome matches your requirements.

 

  • Translators & Interpreters: We have a team of over 2000 linguists, who are spread across the globe. We only work with the best, and all of our translators and interpreters have both qualifications and experience not only in languages, but also in the specialist subject matter in which they work.

 

  • Web Designers: Our team of web designers work specifically on building, designing and adapting websites into foreign languages.  Let their experience of foreign markets take the pressure off your global sales strategy.

 

  • Graphic Artists: When you want your flyer, brochure, manual or handbook designed and ready for print in a foreign language, our DTP team will offer a seamless service.
