About us


City Translations is a specialist financial and legal translation company which translates German and Dutch to English. It was founded on the back of more than 12 years of financial and translation experience which the founder, Laura Byrne, uses to translate or proofread your texts personally and to identify suitably experienced and able translators and proofreaders to work on your projects.

City Translations will go the extra mile for you to get your translations done on time and to your specifications. You’re the one who decides whether you need a translation for just information purposes, whether you need a carefully crafted and proofread translation to represent your business on the international stage or something in between. And if you don’t know what you should be asking for, we can discuss your needs with you and tell you which options we think would be the best match for them. You can also provide us with your own terminology preferences and style guide.
