We’re proud to say that we are all about people. With the right people in your team, you can do anything – and we think we have the right people in our team.

We have a mix of interests, talents and geographical allegiances, but we’ve all got one thing in common: our passion for languages. (Oh, make that two things, we all LOVE international cuisine…).

Our office

Our UK office, based in Guildford, Surrey, is a hub of multi-lingual activity, as between them our talented translation team translate from German, French, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch and Danish into English. 

Hiring policy & freelancers

On a serious note, we have a strict hiring policy, which means that all of our translation staff must have a post-graduate degree in translation and/or five years’ industry experience. Several of the team are members of professional bodies such as the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI), and as a company, we’re a member of the Association of Translation Companies (ATC) and a corporate member of the ITI. We apply these same high standards when searching for external translators, so the quality of our output is assured.

Freelance translators

STAR UK are always looking for qualified and talented translators to join our roster of freelancers. We specialise in technical translation, although we cover a full range of business translation areas. We are currently looking for freelance translators working in the following combinations:

  • German to English
  • Italian to English
  • Spanish to English
  • Dutch to English
  • Chinese to English

However, we are happy to receive applications from translators with other language combinations. We can only accept applicants with an MA in translation OR a BA (or equivalent) in the language you work out of, plus 3+ years of translation experience.


We prefer to work with translators who use translation memory software. 

Priority will be given to applicants who are willing to use STAR Transit NXT, which can be provided free-of-charge to regular freelancers, or can be purchased from the STAR Webshop.

We ask all applicants to complete a test translation and to sign our Terms of Business and Confidentiality Agreement on successful completion of the test.
