What We Do

Our Services

1. Translation

At Longhorn, we work with a network of native speakers across the globe. Our translators are carefully selected based on their field of specializations, offering our clients tailored language solutions for different industry needs. All our translators have a degree in translation or linguistics and a minimum of five years of professional experience.

From general translations to complex content in many different languages, we guarantee you top notch quality and timely delivery of your translated materials.

Our company is committed to adhering to the complete confidentiality of all documents entrusted to us. Our translators are bound by confidentiality contracts.

We handle different types of translations:

  • Document Translation– we can translate any document regardless of the format used:

Brochures, contracts and legal documents, press releases, reference materials, PowerPoint presentations, internal corporate communications, user manuals, newsletters, etc.

  • Website Translation and Localization– a website is every company’s brand footprint: for both existing and prospective clients. Your corporate identity is linked to this interface. A website must therefore be easy to understand and navigate for every person irrespective of their culture or linguistic background.

Adapting a website for a target audience is key in having a wider reach. The website design must conform to the language and culture of the target audience.

We can localize your website to fulfill your market needs.

  • Software Localization and Translation– our software translation and localization services are tailored to your specific needs, cultures and languages of each country.
  • Certified Translation of Official Documents– we offer certified translations for legal, academic and immigration purposes e.g. passports, birth certificates, marriage certificates, degree/diploma certificates, identification documents etc.

In addition, we provide modern conference interpretation equipment and the technical experts to operate it.

For your conferences, meetings, presentations, seminars, negotiations, we will provide you with both simultaneous and consecutive interpretation services.

Our professional interpreters will deliver impeccable language solutions to you regardless of your needs.

We ensure that our interpreters are thoroughly prepared prior to the meeting by consulting with the event organizer and reviewing the necessary documentation so as to deliver quality interpretation.

3. Transcription and Subtitling

At our clients’ request, we offer transcription and video subtitling in English and Swahili. We have a team specialized in transforming audio and video content into accurate, readable transcripts and subtitles while using professional transcription and subtitling hardware and software.

Why Choose Us?

Competent and specialized linguists

We have competent and professionally trained language experts who are specialized in both technical and non-technical nature of content. Our linguists are well versed with industry terminology and we will ensure that your language needs are met.

Quality services

Longhorn Language Services allocates each translation project a manager who oversees the process of translation and interpretation from end to end. This ensures that all the aspects unique to the project are taken care of and managed to the finest detail.

Management process

Every project is unique and has its own defining characteristics. All projects are therefore managed from a central point while maintaining constant communication with the clients to ensure a seamless flow of work and information that is critical and essential to the project. Therefore, there is no time when a project delays or gets stuck. This ensures the deadlines are met with precision.

Quality control and assurance

Longhorn’s principal driver is quality. A ‘third eye’ certifies that the translated document is a perfect rendition of the source material and has no gaps or errors. We work in a cycle with the client by making sure he/she verifies every stage or draft that we make.


We ensure that during the translation and interpretation process, the rights of the client are well protected and respected. This we do by ensuring that all the confidential information pertaining to the client is strictly kept confidential. A non-disclosure agreement is signed between us and the client to ensure that confidentiality is guaranteed.


Longhorn will meet all your language needs, thanks to our vast network of highly skilled and experienced linguists across the globe.

English, Swahili, Arabic, Amharic, Somali, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese, German, & All African indigenous languages.
