Sémaphores: your translation and interpreting agency

Founded in 1992, Sémaphores developed and expanded in 2010 through a merger with another agency. We mainly provide translation and interpretation services, as well as revision, post-production, copywriting and sign language translation services. Do you have a multilingual conference to organise? We will take care of everything: choice of conference interpreters based on the languages and areas of specialisation, sending of preparatory documents, installation of interpretation booths, and the sound system. What happens when a television show invites a foreign guest? We will send you, even at the very last minute, an interpreter to ensure your show is a success.


An important meeting with a director who doesn’t speak French? Our mobile translation system allows a small group of people to communicate easily.
For some events, the interpreter will take notes and interpret consecutively, after the speaker, in which case no equipment is required. With ever greater changes in technology, it is increasingly common for Sémaphores to provide interpretation services over the phone. In these situations, speakers may be located in two different countries.
Do you have an urgent PowerPoint to translate? A foreign language presentation you absolutely need in French? A birth certificate to be certified?


Or you are asked to provide a contract in Spanish tomorrow? Sémaphores is there to provide all these services. Our professional translators are all graduates from recognised courses, which guarantees the quality of the work you will receive, whether for an ordinary text or for a document requiring a sworn translator. Some of our experts are themselves specialists in the fields they translate as they have attended financial or stock market courses. If you have a document or an interview that needs subtitles? Sémaphores will take care of the translation and provide a timecode for subtitling. All this means that we will respond enthusiastically to your requests.
