Company Profile

An important part of the EDU Group Company, Turkish Translation Office (TTO) is a professional Turkish translation agency that provides translation services in many languages and fields.

The Turkish Translation Office was established in Istanbul in 2008 by EDU Çeviri with the mission of becoming the first translation office that comes to mind when it comes to Turkish. In order to reinforce a cultural bridge especially from European languages to Asian languages, in 2013, EDU Group founded a Translation and Localization Office in Europe in accordance with its expansion and investment plans in Europe. With this branch office in Dusseldorf, Germany, EDU Çeviri started offering both translation and localization services to all languages from English, Turkish and German and from all languages to these source languages.

Since then;
   ■ All translations go through a four-stage quality control process.
   ■ We have the infrastructure to comply with corporate companies’ confidentiality and security needs.
   ■ We have ISO 9001 Quality Certificate and ISO 17100 Quality Certificate, the only certificate in the field of translation and localization management accepted worldwide.
   ■ We use cloud based systems and CAT tools in all our projects.

Having pretty much achieved the foregoing mission, we have achieved popular status in the global translation arena.

As a global market player, we are a member of:
   ■ ATA (American Translators Association)
   ■ GALA (Globalization and Localization Association)
   ■ ELIA (European Language Industry Association)
