We’ll be your voice in any language

Passionate, creative and proven to deliver. We enable the delivery of your foreign language projects. We help great companies communicate with 100s of millions of new customers by localising their message.

Language matters. When done right, it affects consumer perceptions, establishes relevance, builds credibility, enhances brand value, and creates trust with your audience — It’s not something you can leave to chance to get right. Great localisation drives sales.

We like to keep things simple. We’ve been in business for a long time and understand that each client’s project is unique. We’ll take the time to understand, we’ll analyse the challenge, we’ll take into consideration the context and offer you the best possible solution for creating a quality translation.

K International have been a pleasure to work alongside and are always happy to help and deal with any queries that may arise. By having a dedicated account manager it means you always have a point of contact rather than having to go through a sales team. This allows for a great working relationship between you and K International. We have always received good service from K International. Timing and quality have always met my expectations and everything is communicated in a professional and timely manner.

I work for an international company that produces games and toys for children of various ranges: Scientific, creative, electronic and educational.

We have been cooperating with K International for almost two years and we found their work exceptional considering that we assigned them translations over different fields within the wide world of Toys. They’ve always been very receptive and ready to take on our requirements. They have always respected our needs and our deadlines, providing a very effective and trustworthy service. As far as I’m concerned professionalism and competence are the most important qualities for those who manage translation and they have both in abundance.

Global Coverage

From our base in the wonderful new city of Milton Keynes we control a worldwide network of professionals needed to localise just about anything you could think of. We share the belief with our clients that great communication is the basis for international success.

Our language, design and technology solutions have been relied on by international corporations and numerous government departments since 1986. We produce translations in 150 languages for every conceivable industry, our broad experience and commitment to quality is reflected in our client list.

Contributing to a Great Community

We’re big believers in giving back and supporting the language translation community. That’s why you’ll often find members of our team speaking at industry events, technology conferences and business conferences all over the world.

We are active members of all relevant industry associations, holding board positions on some of them. We participate in internship programmmes through Cranfield School of Management, Elia Exchange and local schools. Our charity of choice is Translators Without Borders, which we support through fund raising events in and outside our business.

Pan Government Agreement for Translation

We’ve been a key partner with the UK Government since we were formed. We work for local and national government supplying them with document translation services, interpreting, telephone interpreting, transcription and design services. As the UK population becomes more diverse this has become a key service. Big success stories include the Olympics, the Census and the work carried out for the British Library in partnership with the Qatar Knowledge Foundation.

All of our services can be ordered by the Crown Commercial Service framework RM1092. The agreement is OJEU compliant and means all Government departments (local and national) can order any of our services on pre-agreed SLAs without the need for tender or mini-competition. Engagement ranges from literally a few words to millions of words per month.

Accredited Services

We hold ISO 27001 and ISO 9001:2008. Previously called ISO/IEC 27001:2005, ISO 27001 is a specification for information security management systems (ISMS). ISMS are a framework of policies and procedures that include all legal, physical and technical controls involved in risk management. ISO 9001 is a certified quality management system (QMS) that is used to prove our ability in consistently providing products and services that meet the needs of our customers.

Both accreditations are independently audited by the BSI and ISOQAR respectively. They are both independent bodies who regularly audit our policies and procedures to make sure they align with up to date standards.

“Globalisation (coined by my management hero Peter Drucker back in the 1950s) is the concept of a rapid increase in cross-border movement of goods, service, technology and capital, in doing so making many things more similar from country to country. This suggests a homogeneous approach to product design and brand management across the globe – no doubt that the world is getting smaller but its not that simple as people’s tastes, values and cultures are invariably linked to the products they consume and even the philosophy of consumerism changes from region to region. The most successful international brands learn how to localise well.”

Excerpt from a speech given by Richard Brooks (CEO K International)
at Cranfield School of Management.
