About Us

Ippsis Translations was founded in 2003 to respond to the need for translations in highly specialised areas, such as law and finance, but also in other areas.

Eighteen years and more than forty million translated words later, we are celebrating our success by rebranding as: To The Letter.

A new name, the same commitment to quality. Our focus remains on specialist translations, offering speed, accuracy and the dedication for which we are known.
