At Kwintessential, we like to share. In the Resources vault, you will find many downloadable, shareable and important documents pertaining to the art and business of translation.


If you are seeking specific knowledge, please scroll to the relevant area, however we also encourage casual browsing of all resources, just in case something catches your eye and piques your interest. We hope to provide as much information as you can absorb, with the intent of answering every linguistics and translation- related question you may have.


If there’s a burning query causing you to frantically search through every document available, but with no answer to be found, we encourage you to contact us, so that we may provide you with the knowledge you desire – and to remind us that other people may be searching for the same thing – so that we can create a new resource to fill the void.



Come and visit the Kwintessential newsroom – your one-stop-shop for all of our features, news reports, updates and blogs about the affairs and various language and translation-related happenings across the globe.


Obviously, we at Kwintessential find language and its many facets and nuances fascinating, and we hope to share this passion with our clients, partners and anyone who happens to be passing by the website on a quest for knowledge.
