The Linguistics4u translation network

The Linguistics for you project originated when a group of freelance translators working in countries across Europe decided to unite their skills to offer the best possible translation service.

With our presence on the Internet, our network is steadily growing, so that we can offer high-quality, professional translations in and from many languages, and more areas of expertise.

The originality of our concept lies in the fact that there is no intermediary between the client and the translator in charge of his project. Once you have filled in the form to get a free quote, your project is sent directly to the best-qualified member of our association, who then contacts you and starts processing your document.

No intermediary implies no commissions, which guarantees that our prices remain very competitive compared to other on-web agencies.

Yet, the importance and the organization of our network enable us to offer exactly the same services as any agency, namely:

Please note that we apply fixed rates. Our prices do not vary from one translator to the next, or depending on the languages involved. The only variables we take into consideration when calculating the cost of your translation are the time involved and the nature of the source document (format and technical level). This is explained in details in the next page.

Why and what's the deal with this ugly logo? This word-creation derives from two concepts. First there was the ancient Biblical Tower of Babel, a place where people of all nations met and communicated. Words, still in use like the English verb to babble or the German brabbeln, stem from this origin. Secondly, the noun port can be understood as either a maritime port or as a portal, a huge doorway. You may choose. Either concept fits quite well into our own understanding of what shall become. We want to become a busy meeting and market place for the communication, or better translation, industry.

As we took the Tower of Babel to be one of the concepts representing this online meeting place for translators, we were spending weeks looking for a not-to-much-afar logo but we didn't come up with one. Then, already at the edge of dropping this whole idea, one of us looked out of the window! What we saw was the Monument of the Battle of Nations, the Völkerschlachtdenkmal, commemorating the Battle between Napoleonic Troops and the Prussian and Russian Allies of 1813. So we figured: This thing is huge, monstrous, old, and it still stands!. And it somehow resembled the Tower of Babel, too. So we decided to take the silhouette of Leipzig, as we see it when looking out of our windows, to become our logo. Today, we love it. So dont say its ugly!
