Client Testimonials

  • Europus has provided a variety of language services, including Irish-English and English-Irish translations, to TG4 since the channel was established in 1996. Europus always provides a high quality translation service, in an astute, skillful and professional manner, within deadline and at agreed costs. I would recommend this company to anybody who is looking for a high quality service.

  • During our work with Europus, we have always found them to be extremely professional and efficient; their translation costs are very competitive; and the quality of the translated documents are consistently of a very high standard. The staff in Europus are excellent to work with – friendly, helpful, and always more than accommodating when a translation is required urgently. The Office of the DPP continues to contract Europus on a regular basis for all of these reasons. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Europus for any Irish translation requirements.

  • Earlier this year, just before delivery to TV3 of two one-hour films, we were informed that they had to have subtitles for the hearing impaired. Faced with a very tight deadline, Europus completed the job through one long weekend, crisis averted! It was an easy and successful collaboration.

What does a translation service cost?

Translations are charged on the basis of word count. The cost per word depends on the nature and complexity of the material. There is a basic rate for standard translations such as annual reports and correspondence and a higher rate for more complex material, such as legal text.

Our rates include proofreading by a second translator – great news for clients as they get two services for the price of one. We liaise with publishers and printers to review the final product before print or publication online.

For a quote, please send the material and all your contact details to eolas@europus.ie and we’ll get back to immediately with a quote.
