Tradwell has a long tradition of translating from English to French and from French to English. Versatility and precision are the key qualities of Tradwell. We translate your marketing documents, all your written communication, private and corporate contracts, tenders and bids, websites and more. Whatever the media: PowerPoint, .pdf, Word… We don’t use translating software solutions. In order to find and integrate the right word in the right context, we rely on the Thesaurus and the Oxford English dictionary, printed and online. The documents you submit for translation were written by humans to be read by humans, our localized and audience-adapted translations too. We always strive to give you the best translation possible, we focus on your project to make it stand out in the target language.

You need to present your company, products and services during a business meeting in France. Tradwell will not only translate your PowerPoint, but adapt the pitch to the type of audience: we will be concise if the audience is composed of highly skilled engineers for whom storytelling approach is alien, or expressive if you’re in front of a meeting room full of communicators or art designers. The translated documents will be identical, except for the language. Tradwell has a long and versatile experience of working with top French brands and listed companies. You need to be sure that your business translations reflect your company’s aims. Tradwell guarantees that you will be understood, the length and intensity of applause depend on you.

Bespoke translation of all Marketing & Communication documents: Tradwell specialises in both. We translate brochures, presentations, press releases, user manuals and all Marketing & Communication supports to make them precisely aimed at the target audience. They obviously are in the source language, yet to ensure that your products are showcased and service excellence highlighted, you need to have confidence in your translator. Many decision makers think that Tradwell is the right translating service to make their Marketing and Communication come alive in French or in English. Try Tradwell and see your business grow over the Channel, de l’autre côté de la Manche.

Website translation is an art in itself: Tradwell has translated a large number of websites. Technical and industrial contents, purely commercial pages, story boards and WordPress frame translations. You can email your contents on a secure server in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. or let Tradwell do it directly on your website via Adobe Business Solutions, Word Press or other. The length of all paragraphs will be respected, the message amplified and the layout will be the same. If your website pages need to be written in either French or English, Tradwell will work closely with you to produce the best formulation. At Tradwell we integrate an after sales service into all estimates, so if you need to add, change or reformulate once your website’s online, it won’t cost you more for at least 3 months to come.

You need to launch a tender or compose a bid, yet barely have the time and means to do it in your native tongue. Tradwell specialises in translating complex commercial and technical documents and assists you efficiently in onsite, live translations. Tradwell has recently translated (and written some of it) the winning bid for a tender to operate the London Olympic Stadium. VINCI Concessions, one of world biggest construction and concession companies submitted the winning bid in record time. It comprised over 50 000 words including higly technical chapters as well as a large number of pages of commercial argumentation with event-specific connotation. Tradwell delivered on time and on the money.

Tradwell has been a favourite translator for the hotel and tourism industry since its foundation. We translate marketing and communication documents, email campaigns, commercial brochures, signage and websites for major international hotel groups, individual hotels, B&B, regional tourist offices, official tourist guides… We know how to convince existing clients, reach potential clients and built client loyalty. Tradwell adds sparkle to your communication, your website translated by Tradwell describes your hotel and services with the same intensity and colour as in your native tongue. We are passionately bilingual about allotments, distribution channels, rev par and maximum effect revenue management. In the highly competitive world of today it’s vital to make a difference. A badly written email campaign or a poorly worded website isn’t what you want; a beautifully worded document in both French and English, crafted with the aim to increase your sales, is what you need. Tradwell does that, precisely.

Tradwell translates transportation: all documents relating to the transport industry, motorways and all ground transport infrastructures, toll tag documentation and commercial argumentation, regulations, contracts, carsharing websites, marketing, communication and websites of the emerging mobility and intermodality startups …  Transport translation; for Tradwell it means working on all documents relating to trains, but also tramways, bicycles, carsharing and electric cars, fleet management and any other means for a new way of urban or extra-urban travel.

 logo
Tradwell has been translating brochures, campaigns, bids and websites for the advertising giants such as JCDecaux or Metropole Media since its very beginnings. We know the technical jargon and the right words to make your commercials stand out and be noticed by your target audience. We can add spin to your web advertising banners; we use our loaf to make you more bread, as it were. There are vast differences between the advertising lingo in France and in the UK or The States. Slogans such as « Just do it! » cannot be literally translated into French; at Tradwell we’ll listen to you, look carefully at your potential audience and give your words the weight and substance to satisfy your goals.

Quite a few major F & B industry operators have already turned to Tradwell in order to get their product descriptions just right. The way you illustrate your product, the wording of your brochure or website can either successfully showcase your aims or completely deflate the purpose. Tradwell will work with you to tune up your F& B communication, whatever the size or nature of your business. Tradwell will translate your words to English or French, with taste, colour and flair, to give it the certain je ne sais quoi in order to boost your customer loyalty and develop your client base.

When facing the maze that is the French Administration, labour laws (over 8 000), legal procedures, commercial or personal leasing agreements, you may feel disarmed and rightly so. Tradwell has over 25 yers experience of succesful navigation over the troubled waters of French Administration. We can guide you or assist you when you need to get the right paper or stamp or when you want to understand the small print. Tradwell can translate your contracts, agreements, terms and conditions and any other document written in legal jargon. Tradwell can turn notwithstanding into nonobstant, therein has many uses in the diplomatic French speak and we know what hides behind the 3, 6, 9 of commercial leasing and concession contracts.

Partnerships

CiblageWeb

Tradwell chose CiblageWeb to develop its new website, a young yet highly innovative and dynamic startup based in the historic and leafy Eure et Loire region near Paris. Its reputation for delivering clean, to the point websites on time inspired Tradwell to enter into a mutually beneficial partnership, aiming to deliver a comprehensive service with ready to play, responsive design websites published in English and in French according to your brief, with a built-in CMS module to let you update the contents of your website when and where you want.

Clients & Testimonials

I needed help to translate a bid that was to be submitted by Elior, relating to the tender for a concession of catering points at a major airport in Germany. The bid was originally written in French and I requested Tradwell to translate it into English, the language stipulated in the bidding procedure. Uri and Tradwell were highly responsive;

the translation integrated all the technical terms associated with large scale operations and international catering bids. The syntax and style were both pertinent and the language perfectly adapted to the bid, reflecting Elior’s quality commitments and showcasing the dynamic approach of the Group. Prices were right and live translation speeded up the process, enabling Elior to submit the bid within the allocated timeframe.

YieldPlanet has worked with Tradwell on many occasions; Tradwell has translated our web based tools, our website, the channel distribution software training presentations and commercial documents. From French to English or the other way round, Tradwell had always sought and invariably found the correct equivalents and matched our technical jargon in all translations. More than translate, Tradwell came up with innovative ways to describe our products and showcase our competitive edge. Well done Tradwell!

Capsicum Games creates, develops, edits and commercialises innovative board games; from the conception through marketing to distribution, we cover the whole industrial spectrum. Our games are available in a number of countries and languages all over the world. Translating game rules demands linguistic dexterity of the highest calibre, coupled with a fiendishly dynamic and quasi unlimited imagination

as well as a vast general knowledge. Players have to be incited to navigate inside imaginary worlds where natives live, love and sometimes lose or perish by the sheer force of imagination. Translation has to transpose the life on distant galaxies and the bustle of long gone eras to make them vibrant and dynamic, as much as they are in the native, French edition. New words are invented and inexistent synonyms have to be found. Tradwell does all that brilliantly, carefully measuring the degree of gaming syntax and balancing strange and unexplored to make fascinating reading for our clients. One might say that Tradwell gets into the game, lives inside the rules of the game to deliver perfectly transposed translations. At Capsicum Games we know who will translate game rules of our future inventions…it’s definitely Tradwell!
