Food and Drinks

The food and drink industry is revelling in globalisation. Whisky connoisseurs in Argentina sip single malts distilled on Islay and socialites in New York nibble on Brie from France. But with an international palette comes a necessity for quality translation. Suppliers have a legal responsibility to ensure their customers know exactly what they are eating and drinking. As well as being legally required, good translation makes good business sense – potential customers simply won’t buy what they don’t understand.


Global Language Services Ltd has a long history of collaboration in the food and drink industry. We have helped bring Scotland’s iconic drink to thirsty tongues across the globe and have helped push ANM’s fresh produce into new markets.


We understand that translation for the food and drink industry can be different. It has its own jargon and rhythm and it requires linguists who have lived and breathed the industry. By employing translators and interpreters who have specialist knowledge in the field we ensure that our rigorous standards are maintained and that our clients receive a faultless service every time.


As well as ensuring that we hire suitably skilled and experienced linguists, our recruitment process is conducted in accordance with quality standard ISO 9001:2008. Additionally, because we recognise quite how competitive the food and drink market is, all of our staff undergo regular training in accordance with our rigorous in-house confidentiality policies. This strengthens our dedication to complete discretion for our clients.
