Our Company

A growing language training provider

We burst into life in Swindon in 1994, growing rapidly from being a local language training provider to a national player and now operate on a global scale. Initially providing solely language training it became apparent that our clients’ language needs were greater than mastering a language; they needed a more comprehensive approach and they wanted our help. So Dialogue expanded into translations, interpreting, cross-cultural coaching and voiceovers to meet their ever-growing requirements.

Our History

Born out of keen desire to help people communicate and do business in different languages, Dialogue was founded in 1994 by Rob and Nicola in Swindon. The name Dialogue resulted from a brainstorming session in a local pub with friends and family to find a word that represented the company: the 2-way channel of communication that infuses everything we do.

Today

Since gaining Renault as our first client we’ve expanded to service clients globally, opening new divisions to cope with increasing client demand: translations, cultural coaching and voiceovers, amongst others. Cathy joined in 2007 to drive the translations side of the business and the rest is history. The fact that we’ve grown mainly through word of mouth over 25 years demonstrates the key achievement we’re proud of: we do a great job for our clients, they pass that on, and that makes us very happy!

I was really pleased with the quick and accurate service Dialogue gave us. Our video introduced our new Chief Executive to our 40,000 colleagues in BA so it was crucial it was as accessible to everyone as it could be. The decision to add subtitles, however, was taken close to the video’s publication date, and Dialogue was able to take the brief and deliver the video back to us right on our tight schedule. We’ll definitely be looking to work with them again

Dialogue has been a long-time partner of ours for both translation services and language training. We appreciate that they are a family-owned business with a majority of female directors. Their quick and friendly responses, as well as their efforts to ensure we are completely satisfied with our translations make them a true partner to us.

Our translations are technical with a distinct style and yet Dialogue still knows the right questions and things to query, which shows that they don’t just translate words but make sure they have an appreciation and understanding for what the document is about and what is needs to reflect.

Dialogue provided a first class intensive English language training service, which involved real tailoring to our business terminology & industry specific terms which added a significant return on investment.  The pre-travel contact and airport transfers arranged by their team meant a seamless and stress free experience for our employee and a genuine personal service we haven’t had from other providers, or online resources.  I would highly recommend Dialogue for any language services

My intensive course’s 3 strengths were the host family, the importance of oral discussion and the availability of the teachers. The teachers were clear, patient, encouraging, professional, interesting and humorous.

Teachers in Dialogue definitely hold the view ‘you can’t teach people anything, you can only help them to learn’.
 All courses they provide are customised for individual needs, not only teaching English but also encouraging them to learn to have confidence in themselves to handle high levels of English in business day in, day out.

Thanks to the flexibility, understanding and patience of Dialogue I was able to pick up where I stopped 15 years ago in preparation for my relocation to France. The mix of 1-1 training and semi intensive in the UK in addition to an intensive in France ensured that my transition to Parisian living has been considerably easier than I ever imagined.
