Family-run partnership, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, North East of England.

The business was established in 1998, by two people passionate to run their own business, bringing together their own specialist experience and skills. Since setting up the family business, Louise and Paul Brown have never looked back. Both brought different skill sets to the business - the professional linguist and the business-minded Chartered Accountant, ensuring specific expertise and great team work. They love working equally with both major multinational organisations and also small and medium-sized enterprises, embracing all projects with the same enthusiasm. They work closely with a large number of professional, mother-tongue translators and interpreters, ensuring the most appropriate linguist is assigned to each translation project.

I've used Browns Language Services over quite a few years for technical translations for machine operating manuals, an area easily prone to translation 'bloopers', but I've never had any problems at all. I'd happily recommend them.
