Council translators have a minimum of five years of professional experience translating to/from their native language (mother tongue), and many have cultivated specialized skills in industries such as: Immigration, Certified Translation, Legal, Market Research, Press Release, Gaming, Industrial, Marketing and Human Resources (HR).

The Council’s translation service is designed to help organizations do the following:

  • Enhance the control of content for regulatory compliance
  • Safeguard the security of source and translated content
  • Communicate seamlessly with international audiences

Most projects are estimated on a case-by-case basis. The price for each particular project depends on the following criteria: volume and turnaround time. There are significant volume discounts, community discounts, of course, discounts for Council members.

No matter how complex the project is, you are usually provided with a free estimate within an hour.
