About us

Thank you for your interest in our specialist translation agency for the maritime sector.

The Blauvelt NauticTranslations mission

We support your communications by seamlessly overcoming all language barriers, so that you can concentrate on developing your business in every country around the globe.

We do so by offering a dedicated translation service provided by highly qualified native translators with experience and knowledge of the specific professional terminology used in the maritime sector.

Working with us is just like having your own in-house translation team: we possess the same levels of knowledge, engagement and professionalism, but at a lower cost and with greater flexibility.

We translate all types of documents into all languages, including websites, manuals, correspondence, quotes, press releases, user instructions, e-mails, brochures, trade show materials and work reports. If you’ve already had a text translated, we can also proofread this for you.

We have experience with generators, maritime trade shows and media, ports, crew management, anchors, winches, yacht charter, as well as with maritime training courses, radar systems, marine VHF radio certification, shipbuilding and storm surge barriers.

Our carefully hand-picked team of highly qualified technical translators are the key to our success. They translate exclusively into their native language, but what’s more, they know everything there is to know about the maritime sector. Though their education or experience, they know all the tricks of the trade when it comes to the jargon we use.

We get it right first time; we don’t have a separate service team. Quality is in our DNA and comes guaranteed throughout our operational processes.
