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."
    — George Whittier, President, Fairbanks Morse Engine
