Little Shop of Translations was born in 2004 as part of what seemed a natural step forward for the two partners, Zeljko Susljic and Ana-Maria Petrov, who wanted to create something of their own. They merged their skills and set to work on what would become the adventure of a lifetime for both of them. As the company and its reputation grew, they were forced to expand their office space to the current location at 155 Mechelsesteenweg, in the heart of Antwerp. Today the bustling translation agency handles in excess of 1000 projects a month, with a turnover in the region of 12.000.000 words a year… and rising!
The ‘Little Shop’ in the Little Shop of Translations name has nothing whatsoever to do with the size of our agency, but rather reflects our commitment to quality, our attention to detail and the personal touch that we offer.

What makes us different?
Why choose our translation services?
We provided real added value
We take great pride in our work and in providing real added value to all translation projects, using our experience, expertise and sensitivity to local markets. We do not just forward your emails to our translators, we focus on your demands and ensure that they are understood and followed. We never outsource to other translation agencies, instead selecting our translators on the basis of their skills and years of experience.
We are a one-stop shop
We are able to deliver a finished product and can handle multiple language combinations. That means you only have one point of contact and are spared the hassle of coordinating several suppliers.
We provide complex linguistic solutions
Over and above the translation services we provide, we also offer DTP services on demand to help you bridge the challenges of multilingual visual translation projects. That means we can deliver a ready-to-publish translation in InDesign, Illustrator or any other DTP format, and we always perform a final DTP check to ensure that the final product is free of any formatting errors.
If you have a large number of documents and need advice on what requires translation and what doesn’t, we will combine on-site translation with off-site translation.
We are socially responsible
When it comes to selecting our suppliers, we apply extremely rigorous vetting. However, we also do our utmost to keep our pricing fair and our payment terms reasonable.
We are flexible and dedicated
We – the people you will be talking directly to – are the company owners, not project managers working to the clock. That means we are highly motivated to ensure that Little Shop of Translations is a success story, which is only possible when our clients are satisfied. We understand and share your concerns when it comes to the pressure to perform well, and we always go out of our way to ensure that your translations are ready on time.
We are fully committed to our quality policy
When you request a translation from us, we will assign it to our best translator, not to whoever happens to be available. For Little Shop of Translations, our core-tenets are working with native speakers in the target language and delivering a high-quality end product!
