Avantgarde Translactions beyond the word... delivering the message
  • "We were working with several language services firms, but finding inconsistency in both accuracy and delivery. Over a six to eight month period, we assessed each company's capabilities, quality and overall service. Avantgarde Translations is now handling all of our translation needs because they exceeded expectations in all areas. From their responsiveness and ability to meet our timelines to accuracy, consistency and fair pricing, they have proven to be a true value-added partner to us."
    — Tracy Bisha, Marketing Manager, Greenfiber

About Us

Avantgarde Translations, Inc. was founded by sisters Memuna Williams and Isata Jones-Stanley. They developed an affinity for language and culture as their parents’ diplomatic careers took them around the world to live in several countries in Western Europe and Africa. Both eventually obtained Master of Art degrees in translation from Canadian universities. After pursuing separate careers in the Canadian and American translation industries, they partnered in 2004 to create Avantgarde Translations, Inc. Memuna manages the U.S. office and Isata, the Canadian office.

Isata and Memuna bring a combined 30 years of industry experience to Avantgarde Translations, including in-house experience at two of Canada’s most respected companies as well as senior level project management at translation agencies in the U.S. and Canada.
