Multimodal, multicultural, multicompetent. ConText® is a specialist language service provider for Kurdish translation, a translation agency that takes a rapid, unbureaucratic approach to business relationships based on trust to the benefit of our clients. We have the flexibility and expertise to adapt to your individual requirements.
Our specialised Kurdish translators transfer all the content from your manuscript into the target language while preserving the original sense and meaning. Apart from that, our translators formulate the Kurdish translation for the intended target audience while retaining the style and undertone of the original.
This gives you top-quality Kurdish text in an accurate translation that reads like an original. We have not only mastered the art of Kurdish translation; translation is our passion – something we believe you will notice in the result.
ConText® translators reuse previously verified sentences while also ensuring that any client terminology lists are applied consistently throughout the translation with the aid of state-of-the-art translation technology (CAT tools as well as translation memory and data mining technology).
This keeps the language style consistent in all Kurdish translations from ConText®. Our databases store predefined terminology lists as well as comments and corrections to be included in all Kurdish translations.
We translate and localise specialised texts from German and English into Kurdish and from Kurdish into German, or other languages.
The rapid rate of technological and scientific progress requires increasing depth of specialisation from translators.
Our specialist areas include business, law, IT, banking, construction, architecture, chemistry, biochemistry, medicine, pharmaceuticals, marketing, communications, and advertising. ConText® services include quality assurance from our in-house proofreaders.
The ConText® translation agency uses project management software developed in-house from order receipt to delivery of the final translation.
We provide a web portal for registered clients to place complex translation and localisation orders for Kurdish, upload the original documents, and download the translated texts.
A Kurdish project comprises individual client jobs such as translation, proofreading, localisation in multiple language combinations, and DTP.
We use CAT tools such as Trados, MemoQ, Transit and Translation Workspace to generate automated translation analysis if requested.
All Kurdish translations comply with the ISO 17100:2015 international quality standard to ensure completeness and form.
ConText® also supplies official translations from certified Kurdish translators.
Brands vie for attention in reaching the target audience. Imagine you have recently run a successful sales campaign in Iran, Iraq, Syria, or Turkey, and you would like to repeat that for other markets. It usually takes good transcreation to carry your message out to consumers in all the world’s markets.
Advertising messages often contain a subtext that needs to be decoded correctly by the audience in the target market. The art of transcreation involves adapting the message your brand conveys while keeping your brand identity intact in every local market. Translators often take a more liberal and creative approach to this kind of job, as the texts – and visuals in many cases – need to be adapted for your message to hit the mark in an intercultural context.
Transcreation plays an essential role in successful intercultural advertising, communication and product marketing, as it ensures that the message is conveyed as intended to the target audience in each market.
In addition to translation, adaptation, localisation and proofreading, our services extend to consultancy, editorial services, media and graphic design, and print contract management.
We are also happy to take care of the complete package that includes everything from specialist translations into Kurdish by native speakers to international typesetting and proofreading to design, print and delivery including organisation, while keeping within the agreed budget and schedule.

The Kurdish languages consisting of Kurmanji, Sorani and southern Kurdish belong to the north-western Iranian group of the Indo-European language family, and are mainly spoken in parts of Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey. The speakers are mainly Kurds.
Distinctions are generally drawn between the Northern, Central and Southern Kurdish dialects:
Northern Kurdish (kurdish: Kurmanji) is the most widely used Kurdish dialect, and is spoken by around eight to ten million people in Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Armenia and other former Soviet republics. Northern Kurdish has mostly been written in the Kurdish Latin alphabet since the 1930s, and is currently undergoing a process of language development.
This development seeks to expand the Botani dialect from Botan in Cizre (Cizîr) to form the standard language; Botani was used by Kamuran Bedirxan as the basis for his book on Kurdish grammar in the 1920s. Many Turkish and Arabic loanwords have been replaced by words from the other main Kurdish dialects.
Central Kurdish (Sorani) is spoken by about five million people in the south of the Kurdistan Autonomous Region and western Iran.
Central Kurdish is usually written in Arabic script with special characters, although the Kurdish Latin alphabet is seeing increasing use. There are many manuscripts in this dialect.
The dialect spread closely with the reign of Baban dynasty of Suleymania; the Central Kurdish dialect spread into the region with the economic power of the city, supplanting the older Hewramî and Gorani languages. Central Kurdish is also currently used as a source of neologisms in Northern Kurdish.
Together with the other two main Kurdish dialects, Southern Kurdish (Kelhuri) forms the Kurdish language’s genetic unity, and is spoken by about three million people – mostly Shiite Kurds – in western Iran (Ilam and Kermanshah) and north-eastern Iraq (south Chanaqin, Kirind, and Qorwaq).
