our values
For all our services quality is key.

Training entails an investment not only in terms of money, but also in terms of time. Therefore the training options should be as effective as possible, which in our opinion means that they should be personalised. All our courses aim  to develop language skills and ease when speaking, thus enabling the speaker to focus on the content rather than the form. This promotes not only confidence, but also negotiation power. 

Translations need to be accurate, true to the meaning of the original and delivered timely, as simple as that. At edin Training & Translations we furthermore understand the impact of interpretation errors when dealing with legal texts and the importance of understanding legal concepts for the quality of the end result.

Thus for all our Legal English Training & Legal Translation services we rely on fully qualified lawyer-linguists with not only academic but also professional working experience in law.

At edin Training & Translations we also understand our clients’ need for confidentiality and ensure confidential treatment of all documents. If the client so wishes, confidentiality agreements will be signed by us. All our employees and subcontractors are required to sign confidentiality agreements.
