Made in Birmingham

The Word Hub

The Word Hub is proud to be part of the wider Birmingham business community at the heart of England.

We are based in Longbridge, the long-time hub of British automotive manufacturing.

Our offices at the Innovation Centre are on a sprawling site along the Bristol Road that was once home to the Austin Motor Company, Austin Aero Company, British Motor Corporation, British Leyland, British Aerospace, Rover Group, MG Rover Group, and now MG Motor. During the 1960s around 25,000 people were employed here, manufacturing 345,000 vehicles annually. The iconic Austin Metro and original Mini were manufactured here, as well as a variety of arms and munitions during the World Wars, including the RAF’s famous workhorse, the Hawker Hurricane.

The 468-acre site is emerging as a new town in a £1 billion regeneration programme which will ultimately provide 10,000 jobs, 2,000 new homes, a town centre, schools, leisure facilities and two million square feet of offices, including our own site at the Innovation Centre.

As a company that specialises in technical translation, Birmingham is a great place to be, with its long history of manufacturing and the recent naming of the West Midlands as the UK’s fastest growing region for tech. Furthermore, in Birmingham, we are only a few minutes from the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, the Black Country, where huge quantities of coal were once mined, fuelling a wide range of industries that helped Britain to cement its position in the world.

We are surrounded by the history of innovation, mining, and manufacturing.
We are proud to be made in Birmingham.

Established in Birmingham in 2007, The Word Hub has been an active member of the city’s community. We work closely with local higher education institutions to support the career development of their students. This, we are happy to say, has resulted in a team of locally based translation project managers who have each received a qualification from a Birmingham university and who feel at home in Birmingham.

Alongside our national and global customers, we are keen to work with other local businesses and organisations in and around Birmingham. So, if you need a translation, make sure it is Made in Birmingham!

Highly recommended! Very professional, super friendly and easy to work with.

I worked with Darren and the Word Hub team on several occasions in my role in marketing at a Higher Education institution. Projects were predominantly translating collateral into Simplified Mandarin, but they also translated content into Arabic, Russian, Bulgarian and a range of other languages too. One of the key reasons we worked with the Word Hub was because of their formatting service, so we had confidence that final files were accurate, and translated content wasn’t being dropped in by our in house design team from a word doc, which can often lead to errors in translation. The team were always incredibly responsive, friendly and helpful and the majority of the translations were of high quality. On the handful of occasions where tweaks were suggested following our in house review, the team were very responsive to this and worked with us to reach a solution that was agreed by both the translator and the reviewer. Highly recommended.

We have utilised the team at the Word Hub for many years for all our translation requirements and I do not hesitate in recommending them. They are a joy to deal with, experienced, efficient and always provide excellent levels of service, always going the extra mile and adding value to any project we require assistance with.
