A ONE-OF-A-KIND TEAM,
CHANGING THE GAME.
Empower is a leading UK localisation agency and world-renowned specialist in insight localisation. Established in 1997 by a freelance translator, we have since transformed into an award-winning team of friendly experts with an outstanding reputation in both the translation and insight industries.
Crucial to this success is our focus on how we impact the lives we touch, which is why we nurture long-lasting partnerships based on transparency and trust. By joining Empower with our generalist sister agency, Acuity Translations, Empower² was born - a dedicated brand that recognises our partner linguists and agencies as part of our extended team. .
Together, we empower the world’s biggest insight enterprises and the world’s most influential brands, organisations and associations to effect ethical global change. Our projects vary in subject matter and reach. All are underpinned by technological innovation, unwavering engagement and a human-first approach.
Read on for our values, process and how to join our game-changing team.
We remain conscious of the far-reaching changes made around the world as a result of the smallest details of our work.
Trust, transparency and ethics are our absolute priority, above growth and profit.
Out-of-the-box thinking combined with tech-forward solutions revolutionise the ease, enjoyment and efficiency of our work.
Our aim is always to build long-term, mutually successful and enjoyable partnerships. We make sure to:
- Run a fair and clear onboarding structure
- Process payments punctually
- Provide ongoing feedback and quality reviews
- Create open dialogue for process improvement
- Produce service- and project-specific training
- Establish clear, friendly and professional project communications
- Update you on the latest news and developments
We are committed to an open, ISO17100-compliant working translation process (‘TERI’), with the aim of creating synergistic teams of translators and evaluators (editors/proof-readers) who communicate freely during the translation process. Find out more in the section below.
Our linguist and agency teams are committed, agile, creative thinkers with strong commercial awareness. Service requirements tend to be market research-specific and include translation, coding, verbatim, adverse events reporting, link-checking, audio-visual translation/transcription, and subtitling – all with full training and the support of our internal team. .

If you feel a synergy with what we do and how we work, and your specialism matches our niche, we would love to hear from you!
Our application process covers an information-gathering stage, followed by one or two test pieces (depending on your service specialism). If successful, our friendly Talent Hub team will take you through the onboarding process, which includes data privacy documentation, transparent reviews of your first projects and receiving access to the Resource Hub.
