About Us

Hatton Anderson Associates was founded as a partnership in 1977 by John and Chris Hatton, freelance technical translators, and Peter Anderson, manager of a translation agency in the City of London, to supply high-quality technical and specialised translation services to clients in the manufacturing and service industries and professionals such as lawyers and patent agents.

Shortly afterwards the agency operation was expanded to meet the varied needs of the Ford Motor Company, which ranged from workshop manuals for trucks and cars to technical training publications and from production engineering and manufacturing standards to real estate, banking and legal documents - all in a variety of languages.

During this period, we also worked for many other clients in the motor industry including Opel/Vauxhall, and numerous service companies supplying the automotive sector.

Over the years we have always been willing to adapt our operations to the needs of our clients, leading to increased provision of interpreters and the addition of voiceovers to the range of services offered.

Essentially, our core business has always been the provision of high-quality technical and specialised translation and related services plus the professional project management required for large multilingual assignments.

Following the retirement of Peter Anderson, the business was incorporated as a limited company in 2002.

In recent years, the expansion of the internet and electronic communications and the spread of global standards and other technological developments have enabled us to develop partnerships with a number of leading translation companies across Europe and beyond.

Although these partnerships were set up initially to meet the multilingual translation requirements of multinationals such as Mazda Motor Europe and Subaru Europe, the benefits are available to all our clients, large or small.

Hatton Anderson Associates Ltd is now owned and managed by Chris Hatton.
