About Us

Supporting professionals in providing excellent service to their clients, whatever the language.

IMD Translation

At IMD Translation, we are committed to helping diverse communities and minorities thrive through facilitating communication.

Our culturally sensitive, diverse team always goes the extra mile to exceed our clients’ expectations – we are proud to make a difference.

We understand how challenging it can be to find a language service provider you trust, particularly when discussing sensitive, personal, and confidential matters.

We set ourselves apart from our competitors through our understanding of the professional services we serve, including all legal practice areas.

Our Story

Founded in 2021 by Marcin Durlak and Iwona Durlak, from the outset IMD Translation has taken pride in having strong, identifiable values. Mutual respect, tolerance, and openness have laid the foundations for IMD to build an excellent reputation and strong relationships with clients. 

Marcin’s great inspiration was his grandad Michal, born in 1919 in Kuty, a small town in what is now Ukraine. He recalls his grandad’s stories about diverse communities living in Kuty, happily together before the Second World War. Everyone in the community respected each other and the differences that made them unique.  

Even more powerful were his grandad’s stories about his suffering during the War and the forgiveness, resilience, and kindness that followed after he was liberated from a Nazi concentration camp.

When Marcin was a teenager, he wanted to work for the European Union. Marcin strongly aligns with the EU values of respect, freedom, and equality, as well as the concept of Europe with no borders. 

Instead, when his native country Poland joined the EU in 2004, he moved to the UK where he set up IMD Solicitors with his partner Iwona Durlak in 2015. Marcin’s vision has always been to bring together a diverse team of experts to serve multicultural clients and to connect diverse communities with mutual respect, tolerance and inclusion – values that are so close to him and his family story.

Having witnessed the results of poor translation and interpreting on the cases of others, Marcin was determined such poor communication would never affect his clients or endanger access to justice – hence, IMD Translation was conceived, and very quickly evolved into its own independent company serving the language service needs of solicitors and law firms up and down the country. Before long, this expertise expanded into the professional services more widely, and it language services for the professional services, including finance and medical, and, of course, all legal practice areas, that IMD Translation is now known for.

IMD commitment to Diversity, equality and inclusion

We are a diverse and inclusive business. This is reflected in the make-up of our business as are colleagues are from different cultures and backgrounds. In fact, in our office we speak 16 different languages, and the language services we offer extend to dozens more!

It is in our DNA to help facilitate communication and that is what we are about. We are uniquely positioned as an international firm to understand diversity, equality and inclusion.
