Located in the heart of the Pyrenean Mountain range in the southwest of France, family-owned Translog has specialised for nearly 50 years in industrial marking by dry transfer or decals.

Designer of the Tecknagas protection rings, Translog originally started out as a manufacturer of labels, specialising in industrial marking for gas manufacturers.
