Our combination of UK-based in-house translators, STAR Group offices around the world and an extensive network of professional freelance translators makes STAR UK an ideal partner for any company seeking to reach international markets and improve their global communications.
As a true translation company, rather than just an agency, we work very closely with all our partners and colleagues to provide the most flexible, appropriate and cost-effective solution to our customers.
It isn't possible to cover every language and every subject area in-house so over the years we have built up strong relationships with many freelance translators, who are selected on their qualifications and experience. When you place a project with STAR UK, you can be assured that it will be handled by a qualified linguist with experience in your particular field.
As you can see from the comments below, we see our freelancers as very much part of the team, and it's very much a partnership rather than a customer/supplier relationship.

From the Transit translation software to the in-house team, I am very happy to be working with STAR UK."
"I've had the pleasure of working regularly with STAR UK for many years. As a translation company rather than an agency, its friendly and efficient project managers fully grasp the nature of the process from the translators' point of view and are able to offer the appropriate support whenever needed. Of course, the fact that STAR UK has always paid me on time is more than an added bonus! This peace of mind is very important for me, particularly when I'm invited to work on a large project."
