Excellent quality German translations from the translation company that cares

There are 100s of translation companies out there, but how do you know which one is right for you?

Here at LEaF, we don’t try to outdo our competitors; instead we focus on what we can offer our customers. We are not here to attract all the clients, to make promises that we can’t keep and to deliver translations in 100s of language combinations. We are here to make a difference. We are the translation company that cares. All translation companies and translators should be passionate about language (and we are). But we care about other things too. We care about our planet. We care about doing our bit for society. We care about making a positive difference. And we care about our clients.

We may be small, but our size means that we can guarantee quality. We only work with translators that we trust and we tell you which native speaker is translating your document. We care about making a positive difference. And that starts with providing our clients with the best service possible.
