Testimonials Let's hear it from them
By Paul Murphey
House Common Languages is a fantastic all round translation service. They helped me to not only brush up my language skills, but become qualified in translating and find the translating career of my dreams! Highly recommended!

I get some documents through my business that require translating for our international clients. I have always struggled to find a service that is trustworthy, professional and efficient, and House Commons Languages ticks all of the boxes.
By Robert Wickens
I always dreamt of becoming a translator for the Embassy in China. My Mandarin was never quite up to scratch, but House Commons Languages really helped me to up my game, and take the next step in my translation career. Now I have my dream job and owe it all to them!
Have you ever been trekking through the jungle in South America discovered that you were lost? Roaming around mindlessly and searching for help you finally think that your prayers have been answered. As if sent from above an old man hobbles through the clearing of some vine covered trees, carrying fresh fruits and jug of water from the nearby spring. 'Thank God I ran into to you, I've been lost out here for hours and can't find my way, could you point me in the direction of the city please?’ As if fallen on deaf ears the man looks at you oddly, tilts his head to the side slightly, smiles, mumbles something in an unknown langue and then waves at you before heading on his way. Baffled you sit there unsure what to make of what just happened and before you can ask again, or even attempt to follow him, he has disappeared.
Ok so that might be a little far fetched, and far from your usual day to day life but you get my point. Almost every single one of us have been in that sticky situation where you need to communicate, but a big fat language barrier is standing 10 ft. tall in your way. It may have been when holidaying in Spain and you asked the taxi driver why it has taken you 1 hour to get to your hotel that you were sure was only 5 minutes away. Maybe it was when you were asked by a foreign exchange student for directions and helplessly you had to stand there looking puzzled. Perhaps you were asked to make a presentation to an international set of clients, as in your resume you assured your boss that you could speak 10 different languages (we all exaggerate the truth sometimes don't we?).
Whatever the situation may have been I'm sure that you could have really done a translator service! Life is easier when you can communicate. Even if you speak the same language as your partner, it is much easier to tell him what you want rather then expect him to pick up his socks off the floor, and then be angry and disappointed when he doesn't ever do it!
House Commons Languages is a fantastic service that provides a range of translation services to not only individuals but also large groups and even multinational corporations.
- Documentation translation - Anything from legal and personal to academic and employment based.
- Translation training - Helping you to become a translator
- On site translator - Perhaps you have a meeting coming up with a huge client, but the only problem is that they don't speak English. This may be a one of situation and therefore you don't need a full time translator within your company. No one else in the building speaks their language, and your uncle that claims too may not be your most reliable choice! We can send a fully qualified expert translator to you to provide verbal translations as well as minutes in both languages!
