There is more than one way to translate most words / concepts.

However, with beauty, cosmetics and skincare translations that need to comply with a specific regulatory legislation, that isn’t always so helpful. So, we turned the process on its head.

First, we ‘term-match’, using our comprehensive in-house terminology glossary containing approx. 16,000 terms, extracted from current worldwide regulations, e.g., EU 1223/2009 Cosmetic Products (other legislations apply to different areas of beauty, cosmetics and skincare).

Then we translate the remaining content to our exacting standards. See our process here:

We work with our legal partners to ensure compliance in every country of the world and create and manage your glossary of terms to ensure consistency and quality - resulting in your brand dictionary.

A bespoke Product Translations / Legislative Pricing Matrix has been specifically created to optimise your budget. We offer a comprehensive service, including other aspects of the product development process. Visit for more information.

We also work with creative copy, ensuring your brand voice isn’t lost in other markets.

Precise beauty translation is a crucial part of globalising a product. Ensuring the accurate translation of product descriptions makes sure that the variety of ingredients in the products, some of which may not be suitable for everybody’s skin, are clearly labelled. Detailed translations of all of the components in the beauty product will ensure that nobody applies the wrong product to their skin, which could even be fatal in some instances.

Not only is correct beauty and cosmetic translation crucial for the health and safety of the brand users, but clear-cut product translation is also a driving force behind the success of product turnover and brand marketing. If the content for the marketing campaign of your beauty and cosmetic products contains particular phrases that could be misunderstood in another country if translated poorly, our linguists will utilise their beauty and cosmetic translation experience to ensure the same message is seamlessly portrayed abroad.

With native speakers on hand for every language around the world, you can guarantee that your beauty product translation will be accurate, no matter your individual requirements. Our translators are also experienced in locality, so your beauty product translation can appear flawless when presented in numerous regions. We specialise in cosmetic and beauty translation and recognise the huge aptitude of the industry, so we ensure that the translations are not only factually correct, but also faultless, so your beauty and cosmetic business can be respected abroad. What’s more, our experienced linguists can ensure that your brand makes the right first impression in any country.
