After graduating from the University of Montreal with a degree in translation, Yves acquired solid experience in translation as an employee of large international corporations such as Merck Sharp & Dohme, Stelco Canada, RCA Canada and IBM Canada. This wealth of experience, combined with his personal desire to ensure the quality of all things translated, inspired Yves to found his own translation firm, Traducta, in 1978.
To this day, Yves remains a certified member of professional translator associations such as OTTIAQ (Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec), ATA (American Translators Association) and NCTA (Northern California Translators Association).

I've worked in numerous Fortune 500 companies, and worked with translations departments and activities very closely in marketing. BUT I have NEVER had or seen such great work as yours in terms of quality, service and time.
Really appreciate your also updating the slides correctly and the attention to detail.
I very much look forward to working with you each and every time.
Thanks for not making it seem like brain surgery.
