Interpretation Services

On-site Interpretation

It’s not enough for an interpreter just to be proficient in the respective language. We carefully select language professionals based on their qualifications and expertise to ensure that your face-to-face interactions are being interpreted by someone who understands the terminology specific to your industry or situation.

Translation Services

Braille Transcription Services

There are a lot of nuances to braille—different coding systems and conventions. We follow a process that meets or exceeds all of the standards set forth by the Braille Authority of North American (BANA), and pay close attention to the accurate transcription of audio, layout and production, and large print format documents into braille.

Transcription Services

Accurately transcribing spoken words to written text requires careful, critical listening and particular attention to nuance and syntax. We use expert transcriptionists and leading edge technology to provide live or post-production transcription services for meetings, conferences, video, interviews, conference calls, or anywhere else an accurate written record is required.

Document Translation

The problem with many apps and websites is that they don’t go beyond providing literal word for word translations. When partnering with us, you will have access to a nationwide network of language professionals, including professionals certified by the American Translators Association (ATA), who understand how important it is to convey exactly the right meaning. For each translation project one translator performs a meaning-for-meaning translation of the text and a second checks the translated text for quality, integrity, and accuracy.

We can even translate content created using Desktop Publishing (DTP) software such as InDesign and Adobe Illustrator.  With our top of the line software, we can translate marketing materials, newsletters, eBooks, and brochures to promote your business, while staying true to the original meaning and intent of your message.   Let Metaphrasis make your job easier - we have exceptional experience working with the healthcare industry, the legal industry, the government sector, the school systems, & many more.

Language Proficiency Testing

It can be convenient to have associates, employees, or affiliates who can provide for your language service needs, but you need to be sure that those needs are being delivered effectively. We have administered hundreds of language assessments for companies, including both verbal and written proficiency exams, and will work with you to determine the testing solution that best meets your needs.
