Certified translation and localisation, interpreting and legalisation services offered by professionals

We are on the List of next-day legalisation service providers – GOV.UK

Welcome to Manchester Speak, an elite translating and interpreting agency. Based in multicultural Manchester, we are busy bees, offering you services to bridge a gap in communication between professionals and limited English speakers. Our motto is “You SPEAK to us, we SPEAK for you” and this is what we do, literally!

We look after the language and legalisation needs of clients in both private and public sectors. We pride ourselves on the quality and dedication of our qualified interpreters and translators. We offer services in the more common languages including French, German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, but also have a strong reach across languages from Africa, Asia, and from Central and Eastern Europe, but not only, including Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Bulgarian, Czech, Hindi, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Somali, Slovakian, Tagalog, Thai, Ukrainian and Urdu. We also source rare languages, such as Basque, Moldovan and Twi.

Our interpreters are fully qualified and vetted to do simultaneous, consecutive, and whispered interpreting. Our translators are certified, such that their translations can be used for official purposes (i.e. courts of law, schools and universities, Home Office, ECCTIS, Embassies & Consulates, prisons, and hospitals).

We also offer transcriptions, voice-over, subtitling and legalisation services. Please get in touch to make an enquiry!

Whether you need an interpreter or translator for a medical, court, police or solicitor setting, a prison visit or conference, or simply to accompany you or your client to the jobcentre, etc., you came to the right place! Or, maybe you need your website translated, your app or game description localised or legal documents translated.

We offer services in the UK and other countries alike. An example of our services can be seen below. This is not an exhaustive list, and we would gladly work with you to meet any specific demands.


We Understand Your Needs

Led by an experienced professional in the field, we have a thorough understanding of the field of translation and interpreting and listen to your feedback. Our aim is to better ourselves and consistently evolve. You speak to us, we speak for you!

If your demand is for interpreting in criminal matters, we are happy to provide quotes for the Legal Aid Authority (LAA). Whether it is a burglary case, rape, human trafficking, or a murder trial, we offer long-term support for clients.

Immigration cases

Especially since Brexit, many of our customers need support with filling out paperwork for Visa applications and preparing their bundles in immigration-related matters. We are more than happy to assist immigration professionals in this process.

We are well versed in supporting our clients with translating and interpreting services during care and adoption proceedings. Our translators and interpreters have extensive experience in dealing with such delicate matters.

We work with many hospitals, solicitors, local authorities, social workers on family cases, job applications, divorces, domestic violence, care arrangements and proceedings.

Civil cases

Personal injury claims: we have a proven track record of working with solicitors on Road Traffic Accidents and Collisions (RTAs/RTCs and personal accident or personal injury claims).

We can assist from the beginning through to the end of these cases including help with initial questionnaires, setting up conferences, conferences with clients, taking statements, translating statements, the provision of affidavits, attendance at medical/legal appointments and court appearances.

Family cases: we have assisted many clients with simple to complex family issues involving spouses, children, or parents of different nationalities. Civil cases may include divorce and financial settlements, child custody proceedings, or care arrangements.

Public notaries.
