Tim Carruthers


Tim Carruthers is a climber and linguist providing a range of multilingual services to the outdoor and publishing trades: literary translation, website content, press releases, corporate translation and localization of technical, legal and business materials, copywriting, equipment testing and review.

Tim has been involved in this market for some 20 years. Previous to 1999 he had supplemented his income from the above sources with modern languages teaching and lecturing work. He resigned his full time teaching post in Sheffield in July 1999 in order to devote himself full time to his business, moving to Cumbria in August 2000.

Tim is skilled in the basic use of IT and well acquainted with the tools and functionality needed to keep pace with fast-evolving technologies and customer demands, safeguarding his status as an independent freelancer by placing him at the forefront of developments in the increasingly competitive translation and copywriting business. In this fast moving market, Tim’s livelihood hinges on his ability to produce high-quality, cost-effective advertising copy and translations.


Words and expressions may be correctly translated, yet often convey indifferent or meaningless messages. The meaning of a word is much more than its dictionary definition.
Even when the knowledge of the target language is excellent, the message may convey a completely different meaning if idiomatic expressions are translated literally.
The translation should be a version of a text in another language that is faithful to the original, is written in the idiom of the target language yet suffers no loss of precision.
Translating in the business environment is a serious task. Words are powerful and impactful - they inspire understanding or confusion, win friends and influence or discourage and demotivate.
If you are keen to win business abroad you need linguistically and culturally accurate translations that bring your message home.

Every organisation has its own corporate culture. A corporate identity in all written communication is just as important.
You can count on Tim Carruthers to set and maintain the tone and distinctive character you have chosen. Tim Carruthers preserves that important thread running through your communications, while respecting purpose and target groups. It is this associative element which reflects the uniqueness of your organization and characterizes Tim’s work.
