Translation services specifically for the astronomy, aerospace and astrophysics sectors

Astronomy Translation was set up in 2010 as an offshoot of successful Newbury-based translation agency Languages Today. Run by Gus Kenyon, Languages Today has been providing professional translation services to businesses throughout the UK and abroad for four years. Gus himself is a highly experienced linguist, with a Joint Honours Degree in French and Latin, a Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of Linguists, membership of the Institute of Translators and Interpreters (ITI) and many yearsí experience as a professional translator and linguist.

Gusís other main passion is astronomy and space science. He has been active in this field for over 20 years, as a member of the British Astronomical Association, a member of Newbury Astronomical Society and an active amateur observer. A published astronomy writer, Gus has worked on and overseen a large number of translation projects that have required specific knowledge of astronomy and space science, including work for a German-based aerospace agency, collaboration with a Paris-based publisher of astronomy books, and translation of numerous historical scientific documents written in Latin.

Astronomy Translation was born out of an increasing synergy between these two fundamental areas of Gusís expertise. There are ambitious plans to sextuple the size of the UK space industry in the next two decades, from £6bn to £40bn*. Astronomy Translation plans to support that process. Astronomy Translation combines resources in terms of knowledge and capability of commercial translation, involving almost every major European and Asian language, with detailed knowledge of astronomy, space science and astrophysics, to offer a range of specialist language services dedicated to supporting companies, organisations and publications involved in the astronomy, astrophysics and aerospace sector. We are, we believe, the only translation agency in the UK to do so in such a focused manner.
