Vancouver — The Pacific Port

More than a century ago, Western Canada was finally connected to the rest of the country when the Trans Continental Railroad was completed, its end coming in Vancouver. The city was then, and remains today, a burgeoning port, the largest on Canada's west coast and a beacon of trade and commerce with the United States and Asia. Its many offerings have made Vancouver an attractive port-of-call for Canadian immigrants from the Pacific and tourists looking to take in its breathtaking mountains, fields and rivers.

Vancouver is also one of Canada’s largest and most important business communities. It houses some of Canada’s largest businesses in different industries. Technovate Translations recognizes the diverse populations in Vancouver and the need of the business community. That's why we built one of the foremost translation agencies in Vancouver, to serve all those who need accurate, efficient translation to keep connected.

Despite having major industries one staple service for us is Legal Translation in Vancouver.  We service some of the largest law firms in Vancouver and provide complete certified translation services.

Staying in the Loop

One of the most rewarding, but difficult, parts of running a business in a place that is home to a diverse cultural population is servicing people who speak and work in a number of different languages. Businesses in communities like Vancouver have a workforce whose first language is not English. Similarly, businesses have customers around the world and want to ensure their product is easy to use and understandable in as many countries as possible. Hence, when it comes to document translation, complex specialty translation, shipping and receiving waybills, cost estimation for work to be done and even overnight or emergency translation, the quality of the final product is paramount to successful business relationships.
