From small artisan food producers all the way through to well-known supermarkets, effective overseas growth has become a key method of generating revenue in a crowded marketplace. K international have been helping to support this trend by providing a specialist food packaging translation service to retailers for more than 5 years. We have built up a reputation for reliable, quality translation, working with our long-standing partners. We have reached a point where we are now producing thousands of legally compliant pack translations per month, helping multinational food producers and food retailers compete all over the world.

Through the ongoing development of our systems, we are fully equipped to provide a complete solution for your packaging translation projects. This includes, but is not limited to, compliant translation of titles, legal descriptions, ingredient lists in addition to creative marketing text and ancillary POS. Our accompanying services include complete artworking facilities to recreate your packaging designs and a guaranteed label check service to ensure legal requirements are adhered to for target regions. We are also able to integrate our language management systems into automated artwork production applications such as ESKO. This enables you to streamline your translation workflow by letting us take care of the translation and regulatory side.

As a valued packaging translation client, you will benefit from…

  • Experienced linguists with a proven track record working alongside food retailers

    All of our linguists are selected for projects based specifically on your individual requirements, be that for food labelling, localised artwork or international product marketing. They only ever translate into their native language to guarantee that your translations are accurate and read naturally, communicating your intentions as if you had penned them yourself. We deliver your voice in the language of your customers!

  • International Legal Compliance

    We work with qualified international food technologists to ensure your translated product packaging conforms with the local legislation of your intended target region. This is a vital step in avoiding the possibility of costly product recalls that can damage your brand’s international credibility.

  • Dedicated account management for food producers

    Every client we work with is assigned a dedicated account management team,  this ensures you can always talk to someone with a working knowledge of your projects and who understands your unique brand requirements. They are always available to answer your questions and are responsible for providing you with regular translation progress reports. Our team are here to assist you in every stage of our working relationship, whenever you need them, without exception.
