English to Irish Translators • Seirbhísí Aistriúcháin Béarla Gaeilge

From our Dublin city offices we translate from English to Irish and Irish to English.  Our customers include Irish government departments, public sector organizations, private companies, utility companies, web designers and advertising agencies. We are proud to work with many Irish state departments including Revenue and Social Protection. STAR is an approved member of the OGP Framework for Irish Translation.

We employ native Irish speakers with specialist translation expertise to deliver a complete solution for your Irish translation. Translators work to An Caighdeán Oifigiúil standard.

We also offer proofreading services for customers who need to have documents checked that are already in Irish.

Certified Quality

Translation is completed to ISO 9001 and ISO 17100 certified the highest quality standard for translation. For specialist translation requirements, we also employ translators accredited to Fóras Na Gaeilge. We employ our own 6-step quality process that ensures you receive the highest quality translation.

Translation is proofread by a second separate proofreader to ensure a STAR level of quality. This process ensures consistent high-quality Irish throughout. We use TermSTAR and WebTerm to create and manage our Irish Dictionaries which are used by all our translators. This means we have the most up-to-date Irish terminology for government documents and policies.

Irish Translation Services for the Public Sector

Delivering translation for government and public sector requires the highest levels of quality and the ability to deliver large volume translation projects. We work with a number of government agencies delivering documents in the areas of pensions, welfare, immigration and health and safety.

Alongside our Irish translators we also translate documents for Irish government derpartments into languages such as Chinese, Arabic, Romanian, Russian, Polish and French covering all resident nationalities. We cover all your departments language needs.
