About Us

Welcome to Language Empire, the new provider for all of Plymouth’s translation and interpreting needs. Translate Plymouth’s services are being transferred over to us and, from April 1st, we’ll be running the show.

Based in Rochdale, Language Empire have provided a translation and interpreting service since 2001. Having quickly established itself in Greater London, Language Empire went on to open offices in Birmingham, Greater Manchester and Scotland. The move to Rochdale came in 2012, which allowed for larger premises from which to work from.

Over the years, Language Empire have worked with a number of clients including London Probation Area, Pennine Care NHS Trust and Salford Council, to name but a few.

We supply linguists for:

  • All your City Council departments
  • Other Local Authorities
  • Public Sector organisations, such as NHS Plymouth
  • Registered charities

As a translation and interpreting company we aim to provide the best service to our clients, whatever their communication needs. Our professionally trained, qualified and experienced interpreters help us to achieve this.

We understand the need for interpreting and translation in Plymouth, where more than 50 first languages are spoken. We also understand that quality service goes a long way and our goal is to always go above and beyond what is expected of us.

As well as our translators and interpreters, we have a dedicated team of Account Managers who make sure your requests are taken care of quickly and in the most effective manner.

Bookings can be made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.
