Bridging the Language Barrier for our clients since 1989...


Tongue Tied (Manchester Ltd) is a language agency that provides specialist translations from and into any language. Formed in 1989 we look back at 25 years of constant growth and have established an enviable global network of over 4000 highly qualified, experienced and carefully chosen translators who are experts in their particular field.

So if you have a medical, legal or technical document to be translated into Russian, for example, then we place this with a specialist translator in that field who is not only native Russian, but who also lives in Russia. This is the only way to guarantee the highest quality translation.

Today we provide tailor-made language solutions, in even the most specialised of subject areas, for more than 1000 clients, big and small. Please take a little time to view some of the testimonials from our customers who value our speedy, accurate and reliable service at fair prices.

For translation we offer the complete package. Having proofread it, as standard, we can then typeset the translated text into your design package of choice and even print it all out for you.

We don’t just provide translations at Tongue Tied though. With services ranging from interpreting (face to face or on the telephone, consecutive or simultaneous), foreign language professional voice over artists & multi language transcriptions, we have a bespoke solution for all of your language needs.

We would love to prove to you the high standard of our work and show you our exceptional Tongue Tied customer service, so to find out more about any of our complete range of language services, please drop us a line or, better still, give us a call.

We look forward to hearing from you.
