Avantgarde Translactions beyond the word... delivering the message
  • "We rarely need a language services company, so use them sporadically. One particular bid opportunity arose with a short turn-around requiring the translation of an 80-page request for Proposal document from Spanish to English. We approached a couple of firms based near us, but none were willing to translate the document in such a short time frame. This was not the case with Avantgarde Translations. Their team turned around the translation over a weekend in order to give us time to review and prepare our proposal. A few days later, we were informed we won the bid. Avantgarde Translations proved its ability to respond, produce, and help us compete."

What We Do - Cultural/Multilingual Consulting

Understanding the culture behind a language is as important as knowing the language. This is the difference between a translation that communicates versus a translation that merely renders words into another language. We use proper idiomatic expressions in our translations. In addition, we have quality control measures in place to further ensure accuracy from a cultural standpoint as well as from a communications standpoint including:

  • Informing you of cultural reasons for word or image choices within a translation based on cultural preferences or expectations.
  • Testing new product and service names with language experts for the international markets you are targeting.
  • Adapting product or service campaigns for appropriate markets.
  • Compiling reports to help you make informed decisions about where or whether to use a possible product or service name.
