Words matter!

In a global environment the ability to communicate effectively can be a challenge. Bilingual professional communication mediated and supported by translators makes an essential contribution to helping people to overcome the language barrier. An area of significant growth in the translation industry in recent decades has been the process of language localisation, through which a product or content products is, linguistically and culturally, tailored to meet the needs of a specific market (a “locale”). Thus, translating requires more work than a simple transfer of words from one language to another. Our job is to convey the original tone and fulfil the text’sintended function in a new audience, which requires excellent writing skills and a good command of the subject matter of the translation.


“It was first Reisig who used the term Semasiologie to describe the scientific field that examines word meanings. Then Breal used the term sémantique (eng. semantics, germ. Semantik) from the Greek noun semantikos (meaning “important” or “ο έχων σημασία”).”


At Semantics we have a strong focus on quality and punctuality. Our aim is to provide an expert tailor-made service to our clients from the very beginning all the way to the perfect conclusion of each project.
