We apply our agro-food industry knowledge to your translations

SMG Food is the special service line of SMG LANGUAGES translation agency, dedicated to the agri-food sector.

With more than 1.3 million words translated in the field, we have assisted important institutions such as the OECD and the European Commission, as well as a large number of national and multinational private companies involved in the production, processing and distribution of food products.


Our native speaker translators collaborate with food industry consultants authorised by the customer.

Internal training

We train our linguists through internal courses, briefings and visits to the customer’s facilities in order to enhance knowledge, before and during the assignment. The translation staff thus extend their knowledge in this field and can consequently provide a service which is fully tailored to the customer’s needs.

SMG works with ethical farming in Amazonia

You may not have known it but the SMG group, as well as being a prestigious translation services company, also includes a catering service company, SMG Meeting, which is constantly on the lookout for high quality food products. This continuous search has lead us to get to know an ever increasing number of new agricultural businesses and become not only their translators but also their clients. Since 2019, we have been collaborating with the ethical farms of the UCSS (Universidad Cattolica Sedes Sapientiae) in Lima, Peru, which is successfully promoting a sustainable agricultural approach in Amazonia. It is a new adventure bringing us closer and closer with agriculture, allowing us to get to know it first-hand and to learn to translate in this area with expertise.
