Our ability to work directly with artwork files enables us to handle the entire translation process within the original file format. No requirement to extract the text from the artwork in order for the translators to work with the text. All translated artwork is then sent to the translator for final quality approval before final approval and delivery to the client.

Company History

McFelder Translations was founded in 2004 by the company directors, Fiona McCrae and Christian Feldermann with the central office based in Girona, North East Spain. There was always a desire to create a company that could really understand the needs of global companies, the many demands of working on a truly international basis and that would form an integral part of the client´s team to enable them to meet all their communication requirements within the necessary time frames. As both McFelder directors have over ten years of industrial experience working in international companies they have a clear understanding of the clients’ expectations and requirements from their translation service provider.

Each client has their own unique requirements and as in every sector in which we operate the translation must reflect a sound understanding of the client´s brand as well as applying the correct terminology.  Our business has grown rapidly over the years by winning important contracts with global companies and government organisations.  We have also invested in the latest translation technologies and established quality accredited workflows as well as investing in the training and development of our in house personnel.  Continued investment ensures that we always provide our clients with a high quality service but in parallel with the most cost effective language solutions.

Our long partnerships with key clients provide important advantages such as our ability to maintain or reduce client costs year on year but never lower our quality or service standards. We continue to work with the same clients that have been enjoying our services since the business was established.

We collaborate with clients to enable them to meet all their global communication objectives whether these are translation, desktop publishing, transcreation, interpreting or audiovisual services.  Our global network of more than 4000 specialist translators ensures that we can meet all your language requirements regardless of the number of languages required for any one project. We regularly manage multilingual projects of more than 30 languages within very short timeframes.  This can also include several different types of file formats. McFelder Translations has become the approved and trusted translation partner for many multinational companies throughout the world.
