From Local Roots to Global Reach 

Founded in 2002, a time when fax machines were widely used and the internet was still in its nascent stages, Alafranga Translation Services Ltd. (Alafranga Çeviri Hizmetleri Ltd.) quickly established itself as a trusted provider of professional Turkish translation services, conveniently located near the 6th Notary Public in Istanbul.
 

From our humble beginnings two decades ago as a group of technical and legal translators, Alafranga Language Solutions FZ Enterprise (ALS FZE) in U.A.E, has grown into a highly skilled multilingual team. This growth is supported by a private network of over 5,000 trusted vendors, cultivated over 21 years of dedicated service.

 

Today, we offer extensive language services, ready for long-term collaboration, and adapt seamlessly to cutting-edge technology, all while boasting a proven track record of satisfied customers. Our comprehensive range of services includes expert-to-expert and end-user technical and media translation and post-editing solutions across key formats and platforms in a wide range of industries, such as industrial manufacturing, agriculture, energy, consumer goods, IT, e-commerce, e-learning, and more.
