The Beauty Words Agency

1992

Founding of Beauty Words, Translation and Editorial Communication Agency – Specialised in Luxury and Beauty

  • Originally providing services for Parfums Christian Dior, as it was founded by an in-house copywriter, the agency quickly diversified its customer portfolio in luxury and beauty thansk to word of mouth.

  • Relocation from Neuilly to Paris.

Expansion of the agency to a wider offering of multilingual services

  • Hiring of an international executive to develop the Translation offering, which became the Multilingual Service Department with the support of project manager and professional translators, who came to complement the multilingual team.
  • Modernisation of the agency’s communication tools with the creation of the first Beauty Words website, followed by the creation of the extranet.
  • Diversification of the types of the agency’s multilingual services: audiovisual transcription, interpretation, monitoring subsidiary proofreads, assistance for DTP, Ready-for-Press proofreading, etc.

Editorial Projects & Press, GUERLAIN

We very regularly solicit the services of Beauty Words, and that for over 10 years. Reactivity, rigour, professionalism, customer service, each quality an explanation for why we owe our loyalty to the Beauty Words team.
Whether it’s for long translations for our works or a press kit, or a short translation of formulas, hard-hitting and pertinent, we have always been fully satisfied with the work delivered by the Beauty Words translators, and that whatever the target language.
Over the years, the teams at Beauty Words have become loyal and essential partners.
I’d like to thank all translators and collaborators here.

No changes to the French translation on my end, thank you for the excellent work.

International PR

Pernod Ricard Group

Beauty Words is an impactful translation agency, effectiveness. They’re very professional, proactive, responsive. It is a real pleasure to work with them.

Communication department

Domaine Clarence Dillon

I really appreciated the quality of the translation of a very technical document (treatments and massages) that I confided to you in January.
You are perfectly adapted to our very specific universe.

Frédérique de Paillette

Training and Coaching Director, La Prairie Group France

Beauty Words greatly contributed to the translation of our French website. It was a delicate mission because the files provided in English were only passably translated from our Japanese site.
If you’re looking for a very reactive, professional, and caring translation agency, I encourage you to contact them. Quality will be your just price.”

Olivier Bouillot

General Manager, b.glen Europe

All our assignments are always delivered on time, the translations are very accurate and fulfilled to our complete satisfaction.
Thank you for the great work.
