Translation service for the food industry
Translations for made in the UK food
SMG Food is our line of translation and interpreting services dedicated exclusively to the agri-food sector and the food industry.
TRANSLATION SERVICES FOR THE FOOD INDUSTRY
Multilingual technical translations of labels, packaging, and recipes according to UNI 15.038 and 17.100 ISO standards for the canning, confectionery, bakery products, dairy products, and cooking oil industries.
TRANSLATIONS WITH REAL CARE
In order to optimise the promotion of food products on foreign markets, we recommend our advertising translation services: the sensitivity of true native translators will give your texts distinctive character, making them very persuasive and high-value tools of communication. This service, similar to creative writing in a foreign language, has achieved excellent results, especially in the translation of wine labels and the websites for prestigious dairy and cured meat industries, today fortunate examples of excellence on the international stage.

Out of curiosity: why are we such experts in translating for the food sector?
Our experience in translation services for the food industry comes from a fortunate coincidence: our Group includes a well-established international catering services company, SMG Meeting, which has been present for years on the food preparation and supply market through two major brands, Moretto Catering and Stupor Mundi.
Although our translation offices are physically removed from our cooking centre and production sites, and although they employ different personnel, our translators have developed a deep sensitivity to the world of food and its specific terminological characteristics and focus on health liability.
This passion does not only stem from the excellent corporate meals that we are able to offer our linguistic personnel, but also from the fact that many of us in the company are Italian and have an almost religious adoration for good food. In fact, it is very important for our translators to be able to consult with the personnel in the food department when they need clarification regarding doubts that arise during translation work, especially in a sector as specific and sensitive as food. The ease with which this sharing takes place promotes understanding and corporate culture in the food sector. Having said that, however, we should also consider that corporate meals contribute to cultural growth and that, therefore, they must continue now more than ever… Buon appetito!
