Aptly Put Translations (you said you do marketing, copywriting, creative translations)
Finely Woven Translations (fashion, textile, etc. plus there is a wordplay with 'finely')

Velvet Words Jun 26, 2015

If Silk Words is already taken, why not try something like Velvet Word Translations or Velvet Voice?

In style ? Jun 26, 2015

Since you want the name to create a mental link to fashion for potential clients, why not something with the word "style" in it ?

- In Style Translation
- Stylish Words Translation
- Words-in-Style
- etc.

Just a suggestion.
Good luck !
Jeff

PS: Just so you'll know, I did not do a web search on any of those names, so they may all be taken as far as I know!

What exactly are the rules? Jun 26, 2015

Before you dismiss all these possibilities - some of which do seem very good - I'd advise you to check what you're actually not allowed to have. I've done many searches for company names (in the company registers of France and the UK, for example), and I constantly find that I'm faced with a list of identical and near-identical names. It happens here on ProZ.com, too, in searches by name on the Blue Board. So I don't think the fact that there's a company somewhere in the world with that name is necessarily a stopper. I'm pretty sure that the other company has to be very close in terms of locality and/or business area for there to be any problem at all, unless it's a major company that has procured all sorts of special legal rights to the name. I think it's worth checking anyway.

Custom-Fit / Tailor-Fit Jun 26, 2015

It depends on how "cute" you want to go with the idea, but it could be something like :

Custom-Fit translations
(Our translations are anything but "off-the-rack" because "one size does not fit all" !)

or
Tailor-Fit translations
(Our translations are "tailored" to fit your needs, because one size definitely does not fit all!)

I like Tailor-Fit Translations as well, but would not go for Velvet Voice Jun 29, 2015

I love the Tailor-Fit Translations as well, witty but not toooo abstract/romantic.

I would however definitely not go for Velvet Voice, because for some reason this reminds me of a company providing telephone sex... (You know, this woman on the other side of the line, trying to come up with her most sexy voice ever,...)
I don't think that's what you aim at.
The same reason applies to why I would not choose Soft Words either (although that already reminds me less of such

Final decision Feb 29, 2016

Hi all,

After much deliberation I finally narrowed it down to 2 options:

1. Translation Loom
2. Catchprase Agency

Which one do you like better and why?
