Professional Translation

Each of our in-house translators is member by affiliation of the Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council, the body responsible for the application of uniform standards for professional certification across Canada. Unlike other translation agencies that offer services in any language combination, La Boîte à mots believes that specialization delivers superior results. By focusing on English and French, we have earned a reputation for creating clear, accurate and well-written translations that effortlessly capture the idiomatic elegance of the target language. For samples of our work, please contact us. If you are unfamiliar with the translation process, you will find some very good pieces of advice in this brochure from the Institute of Translation and Interpreting.
