More than just translation

elativum stands for more than just professional translation, we also stand for certified translations, transcription, DTP services, and bespoke project management. We prioritize perfection, handle your layout needs, and stand with our professional translators as mavens for nuance and nicety. We select and manage the expert, or interpreter, befitting your needs, however high the standards. Our quality promise and readiness form the foundations of our service. Your satisfaction is our motivation.

Project management

everything under control

At elativum, you get a dedicated project manager – that is, a personal contact who accompanies you throughout the entire translation process. Your project manager chooses the right translator and reviewer for your needs, coordinates your project, and critically reviews the final version of your translation.

DTP services

a feast for the eyes

No matter the language: our DTP experts will design your layout so that it is able to accommodate additions and truncations of text effortlessly. Our standard: an optical “translation,” which is not only complete with all the linguistic subtleties of import, but also reads as if it were set in the target language itself.

Professional translation

a sense of nuance

elativum has a network of over 150 professional translators worldwide. All our language professionals are native speakers of the target language and recognized experts in their fields. Of course, we do not just translate word for word. Our translation professionals have a keen sense of nuance and nicety, of the tone of the original. In a word, our translations remain true to the original.


a sense of nuance

It falls to interpreters to find the right words in real time, at court hearings, meetings, conferences, conventions. To do justice to the high standards of our clients, we work only with the most qualified interpreters, distinguished by their excellent language skills and unparalleled professionalism. No matter whether consecutive or simultaneous interpretation, elativum selects the right interpreter for your needs, arranges – whenever needed – for interpreting equipment at the venue, and coordinates everything for you on site.

Certified translations

our bread and butter

elativum offers certified translations across languages. To ensure impeccable and professional outcomes, we cooperate with translators sworn and authorized by the German courts. Because certified translations bear a stamp, a signature, and a statement of certification from the translator, they must be sent by mail. If need be, however, we’ll deliver your document personally, wherever you are. If you needed a certified translation yesterday, we’ll gladly send you a scan in advance.

Transcription services

for projects large and small

Whether court transcripts, corporate minutes, or medical protocols and regardless whether your text is on tape or DVD: elativum offers professional transcription services with the flexibility you need.
