Our Services

Translation Service

Organisations and businesses operating in Wales increasingly need materials translated into Welsh. Ensuring that your translations are of the highest standard enhances your image and gives you a competitive edge.

Clients need a reliable company to provide accurate translations. We recognise the professional nature of the work and pride ourselves on the quality of our final product. It is company policy that all translators who work for Pennawd are members of the Association of Welsh Translators and Interpreters, the recognised professional body. We have vast experience in a wide variety of fields and use the latest and most comprehensive reference materials and documents to verify all terminology and phraseology.

All work undertaken is always checked by an editor before its delivery to the client. Our highly competitive rates provide excellent value for money, as the editing process is included in the price.

We realise that translation is often at the end of the project timetable, resulting in tight deadlines and short turnaround times. Our staff are always happy to discuss your requirements and agree a timescale prior to the commencement of any work. At Pennawd, our aim is to facilitate the translation process for all involved.

Clients including county councils, local health boards, other public bodies, educational institutions, commercial concerns, not-for-profit companies and charities trust Pennawd to fulfil their translation requirements.

Proofreading and Editing

Accuracy and correctness in all written materials are vital to effective communication with clients and service users and to the creation of a positive and professional image. Errors can cause delays, unnecessary costs and potential embarrassment.

The company offers both Welsh-language and English-language proof-reading services, ensuring that proofs are free from spelling and grammatical errors. We can check text before it is sent to the designers or typesetters or proofs of documents before a full print run.

Pennawd also offers a full editing service. We can correct and rewrite your text, improving and adapting the language and style to match the expectations of the target audience and to convey your message clearly.


Business Services


Pennawd offers a variety of business services, provided by staff with top-class secretarial and linguistic qualifications and an excellent level of education.

We can provide full transcriptions of meetings or interviews, or of recorded material for editing purposes, in either English or Welsh. In the case of Welsh-language material, entrusting the work to a company with a background in translation ensures an end product of the highest standard.

The company also provides services such as the operation of Welsh-language telephone provision, which enhance the client’s image in an increasingly bilingual Wales.
