Educational Translation and Publishing Services

Developing Multilingual Solutions. Meeting Educational Expectations.

With extensive project experience – from small ancillaries materials to multimillion-dollar adoptions – Translations.com's Publishing Services Group is used to working within the strict confines of the ELHI arena.

Comprised of knowledgeable and resourceful teams exclusively dedicated to working on ELHI materials, Translations.com is a one-stop shop for all your multilingual publishing needs. We regularly handle the adaptation of both print and web materials—from initial editorial stages through pre-press. Whether you need a textbook in Texan Spanish or a lesson plan in Striped Hmong, Translations.com is the ideal solution for all your translation and localization needs.

Multilingual Editions Must Be More than Word-for-Word Translations

Translations.com's Publishing Services Group recognizes that multilingual development involves adapting context as well as content. We pride ourselves on our ability to truly localize – rather than simply translate – your content.

Localization is much more than the literal text translation. It means creating and adapting content for a specific grade, region, culture, or pedagogy, and involves maintaining and managing context to be appropriately presented to a specific target audience. With nearly two decades of experience working with the educational field, Translations.com’s Publishing Services Group has the resources and carefully honed knowledge required to ensure that your multilingual materials are as effective and culturally relevant as the English source content.

Full-Service, Hassle-Free, One-Stop Localization

Translations.com Publishing Services Group offers scalable solutions for all your ELHI localization needs. You have spent a tremendous amount of time and money crafting your English editions to meet specific local and regional requirements and expectations, ensuring that they are pedagogically sound. Should you or your customers expect any less of the multilingual editions?

On time. On budget. On market. That's your goal and ours.
