As business becomes increasingly international, effective communication with your international clients is crucial. You may be able to speak another language well, but it’s much more difficult to write to a high standard in a language that’s not your native tongue. And you can’t always rely on a foreign colleague – simply being a native speaker of a language doesn’t automatically qualify you as a good writer.
Our background in international commercial real estate marketing and communications has given us a full understanding of the specialist property market terminology in English, French and Chinese as well as good business writing skills. Since 2008 we have specialised in commercial real estate translation, supporting real estate advisors, investors, occupiers, developers and asset managers.
Below is a summary of the services we currently offer for French to English and English to simplified or traditional Chinese. Can’t see what you’re looking for? Give me a call, I still may be able to help!
We work with a variety of clients in the UK, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg and Asia translating a wide range of commercial real estate documents. These have included research reports, market reports, lease summaries, building descriptions, valuation reports, client presentations, marketing materials, sector reports, press releases – you name it and we’ve probably translated it!

Pitches and proposals
A spelling mistake or an oversight can cast doubt on your professional credibility. I can work with you and your teams to either translate and edit your materials and ensure a 100% professional image for your company.
If you need to give a presentation in English or Chinese, we can help you to rehearse with a focus on clarity, pronunciation and the correct market vocabulary for your audience. These rehearsals are normally carried out via Skype or Skype for Business, but face-to-face rehearsals can also be arranged.
Commercial property brochures, websites, fliers, corporate materials, press releases and other marketing materials. Send us the materials you have and we’ll draft your English or Chinese text for you while ensuring your key messages are effectively communicated.
Press release writing is an art in itself and the style varies from country to country and from industry to industry. Working with you, we can draft and circulate press releases on your behalf to targeted real estate media contacts in English and Chinese-speaking markets and, if required, can also provide feedback on coverage as well as translations of any published articles.
