Universal Language Services and Publishing is a leading company in Turkey and its region with its 41 years of experience, expertise and customer-oriented service philosophy.
Universal Translation Office was established in İstanbul Cağaloğlu by three partners.
In line with Turkey’s policy of overseas expansion, and in order to meet the need to know Republic of Turkey’s laws which emerged as international relationships developed and foreign investments increased, we launched Turkish Legislation Publications by having the Turkish Legislation, which included the entirety of the laws regulating trade, taxes, auditing, banking, foreign exchange, investment and industrial production, translated into English, French and German by expert translators.
For the first time in Turkey, we started to use PCs consisting of 4 parts in the production of translation and related services, which were more advanced than the electronic typewriters with installed memories.
Changing Leaflet Publication System
With the “Changing Leaflet Publication System”, we started to offer the Turkish Legislation Publications in 15 different packages together with the amendments made during the years to all subscriber institutions and organizations including public offices, domestic and foreign professional organizations, banks and multi-national entities.

In order to carry out production in environments where translation is done and to finalize the products in environments (digital, print / multimedia) that are required or preferred, we started the Desktop Publishing department where typesetting, graphics, preparation and printing procedures were performed. We also developed the publishing preparation and printing infrastructure.1988 - Publishing
We started our publishing life by publishing dictionaries and manual translation memory.
We published English – Turkish Encyclopedic Dictionary prepared by Hilmi Özenli, one of our technical translators, which contained terminology from various areas such as Electricity, Electronics, Computers, Nucleonics, etc.
As the demand for translation and post-translation activities such as redaction, editing, typesetting, graphical page-setting increased, we established the Project Study and Management Group to manage comprehensive projects.
The consortium we formed with Evren Ofset (Ankara) won the tender for the translation, localization, preparation and printing of Ministry of Education Industrial School Textbooks, a project which was financed by World Bank, which we are still proud. Translation of technical texts in 9 different areas commenced as term lists developed by Universal dictionary and translation / localization teams were approved by translators, editor scholars, and supervision and acceptance board.
We submitted 28 textbooks in 9 different areas to the Board of Education and Discipline for approval. After their approval, we translated, localized and prepared those 28 books for distribution in 8 months. The books were printed by Evren Ofset, the other partner of the consortium, in required amounts, and were delivered to the Ministry of Education and offered to the service of the students of technical schools.
