Scientific Translation Services

We translate scientific papers, articles, textbooks, and monographs from French, German, Greek, Italian, Spanish, and Mandarin into English.

Scientific translation for researchers, by researchers.

We provide first-rate, confidential academic translation services from French, German, Greek, Italian, Mandarin, and Spanish into English. All work is meticulously and rigorously translated by a PhD-educated subject expert who is not only fluent in your manuscript language, but conversant with the technicalities of your disciplinary lexicon, no matter how complex the data. Your work will be returned in impeccable condition, having been both professionally translated and copy-edited.

We are a listed supplier of academic translation services in dozens of elite universities worldwide, including Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, Universität Luzern, Université de Lyon, Université Paul Valéry – Montpellier, Universität Ulm, and Università di Torino.

Most generic translators are not well-versed in the conventions of particular STEM disciplines. What makes us unique is that our translators are also subject experts in their own right. Our translations are also rigorously copy-edited and carefully formatted, ensuring that the work you receive back is submission-ready, in terms of both content and form.

Our clients have solicited our scientific translations for high-impact journals, as well as renowned publishing houses, including Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Springer, and Routledge.

Can we help with anything else?

Ensure your entire manuscript is submission-ready with our extraordinary scientific Proofreading, Copy-Editing, and Substantive Editing. Our impeccable author services include correcting all typographical, spelling, and grammatical errors. Where desired, we can make stylistic and substantive changes to your work that promise a powerful first impression with major publishers. Our authors have published with all of the top-tier publishing houses, including Bloomsbury, Brill, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Penguin, Peter Lang, Princeton University Press, and Routledge.

Authors or publishers interested in our services should get in touch with our Managing Editor detailing their editorial requirements and publication ambitions.

Scientific Proofreading

Proofreading is for those clients who need the peace of mind of knowing that their manuscript is absolutely error-free.

Scientific Copy-Editing

Copy-editing is for those clients who are hoping to improve the overall style and concision of their writing, making a guaranteed impression with academic journals.

Substantive Scientific Editing

Substantive editing is our white-glove service for those clients who require heavier editing that renders scholarship into a native-sounding style, with the tone, diction, and clarity of scholarly English.

Scientific Indexing Services

We craft dedicated indexes for scientific textbooks and monographs. These can include page references for boxes, figures, and tables.

“I got a warm recommendation about Lex’s editorial services. My coauthors and I asked for an English translation sample for our new French book, and we weren’t disappointed; Lex’s sample was reviewed by a native English colleague who was impressed by its quality. Although Lex’s price may seem a bit high, their work is priceless!”
