In-house, all over the world

Global localisation company Alpha has grown in size over thirty years, and now encompasses seventeen offices in thirteen countries. The team scales up using global resources to match the most demanding requirements.

Alpha is one of the world’s only major localisation companies to use an in-house model. This means consistency and quality for our clients. With Alpha, you know the team who will be translating your materials, each and every time. This remains true if the project is a small document, or a major software translation of several million words.

We are the human face of translation. We provide insight, experience, and open communication to our clients. This travels from our translators right through to our account managers.

Localising, our way, since 1987

Alpha was founded in 1987, with a vision of translation and localisation that was all our own. Isabelle Weiss, the founder of the localisation company, believed that the quality of translation lay in the quality of the translators. Where many other translation companies were set up to use a varied group of freelancers, Isabelle chose a different set up. She rigorously tested and hired a full-time, in-house team, and saw huge benefits in the approach.

Our team then put technology at the heart of our processes, long before it was the norm. With our own developers and engineers within the company, we found that we were able to adapt and integrate with the technology our clients wanted to use. In other cases, we provided them with our preferred tools. We have continued to push technological boundaries ever since.

Alpha’s early years as a leading localisation company saw collaborations with a series of ground-breaking tech start-ups. Those start-ups went on to become some of the largest names in global technology. We grew with them, becoming a localisation team hundreds-strong. Our influence spread across multiple continents. Alpha moved into other sectors, bringing in industry experts in a great range of fields to make sure that we provided the specialist knowledge that was needed.

We are now one of the world’s top localisation agencies. We manage large-scale projects for many multinational corporations and household names. Yet we have never lost our commitment to our in-house localisation model. We know that it works; and that is what makes our clients keep coming back.

Our Vision

Our vision is to provide localisation in every language, and to every culture. Our in-house model allows collaboration between expert translators and cutting-edge technology. Through it, we can deliver the most engaging content for international corporations.
