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.
