Translate Fast was founded by Simon Poplawski, a time-served court interpreter and Chartered Linguist with a background working for the Metropolitan Police. In 2017, Simon decided to create a translation agency specialising in urgent translations, incorporating the qualities that mattered most to him personally.
These are reflected in our company mission: Translate Fast are passionate about going the extra mile to give you speedy, accurate translations and great customer service at a fair price.

We never cut corners and we use properly vetted, accredited and experienced linguists with a view to building long-term relationships with our valued clients. We want Translate Fast customers to remain at the centre of our activities, and everything we do is built around giving our clients the best possible customer experience.
Rather than taking the approach that any problems can be solved later, our quality assurance checks mean we can deliver accurate results first time, every time. Attention to detail underpins our mission to deliver the best service in the business.
Translate Fast is supported by over 100 experienced, qualified linguists around the globe, selected for the quality and speed of their output. Our linguists are all subject-matter experts and members of renowned accreditation bodies such as:
- Chartered Institute of Linguists
- International Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters
- National Register of Public Service Interpreters
- Institute of Translation & Interpreting
- Translators Without Borders
- American Translators Association
And because so often the projects we handle have such broad requirements, we’ve added skilled DTP specialists, subtitlers, interpreters, and localisation and transcreation experts to our team of professional linguists. There’s no file format we cannot handle!
As a company used to dealing with the unusual every day, we love to exceed our clients’ expectations. This has included arranging overnight translations and courier deliveries, providing tracking numbers and checking regularly to make sure that documents arrive with the client on time.
Translate Fast is expanding steadily in the spirit of Kaizen, with the goal of becoming even better as we grow. We want to continue our engagement with the Chartered Institute of Linguist Mentoring Programme, to give back to society. Leading from the top, our founder, Simon Poplawski, is a volunteer mentor at the Chartered Institute of Linguists, where he gives guidance to young translators and interpreters starting out on their careers.
