About Us

A combination of experience, qualification & competence makes all the difference and… EGL your best option.

The sentence: “We need to determine the contract terms” has very different implications if you are a Lawyer, in the ‘Operations Dept’ or a Salesperson. Web browser tools and translation software don’t understand the subtle nuance and varying meanings between many fine words. EGL does… and ensures that you and your clients do too.

We network internally to share expertise as well as knowledge and follow a rigorous Proof Reading process using only skilled ‘Native Speakers’ to oversee and approve the final results of your text copy and documents.

Barbara Beucker

“I revel in the combination of acquiring, sharing and passing on knowledge, which I attain through avid reading. Literature and words are like personal friends to me and I am passionate about clear text with expression and comprehensibility. Working as a trainer – in Latin, German & English – with students of different nationalities and from varying professions, has been an invaluable experience for me in being able to spontaneously use an extensive vocabulary in more than just one language”.

“I consider myself fortunate to have experienced a diverse range of different business types. My interaction at the design, sales and management stages of various projects (incl. accounting and legal functions of owned businesses) has enabled me to master the verbal skills required in different working positions. I communicate freely, from an informed viewpoint and by means of authority at ‘shop floor’, management or boardroom level and deliver this to as well as for and on behalf of clients during presentations or language training”.
