Customer recommendations


“Wolfestone provided Thales with an interpreter for two days at a Defence Exhibition. Their interpreter was knowledgeable, professional and ensured that our Chinese clients were well informed and able to communicate effectively with exhibitors. Many thanks!”


“NURC-NATO approached Wolfestone about Arabic translations. We were very happy with your translation service due to your fast turnaround and friendly customer service. The quality of your translations was excellent.”

Airborne Systems 

“Airborne Systems was looking for a translation company for our technical datasheet. Our product technical jargon being so specific and not widely spread, we had to ensure we could trust our translation partner, especially with languages such as Arabic. Working with Wolfestone has been a pleasure – we experience quick response, on-time delivery, flexibility and quality. Their flexibility was demonstrated by accommodating the software platform that we use (providing the technical datasheet in press-ready format as well as an editable format). We would highly recommend Wolfestone!”

BCB International
