​Give Me Your Word Ltd. provides language services to businesses and individuals in a variety of contexts.


Whether you are a company welcoming foreign colleagues for a site visit or meeting, a production company arranging a television shoot with a high-profile athlete, a solicitor working on a case requiring document translation and interpreters, an individual with papers to translate for a nationality application or needing an interpreter to accompany you on a medical appointment, we can help. 

We collaborate only with qualified, experienced linguists accredited by professional bodies in the translation and interpreting industries to ensure that all projects are completed to the highest level.


We follow the Institute of Translation and Interpreting Code of Professional Conduct which demands strict adherence to principles of integrity, competence and client confidentiality.
