The NVTC understands that translated documents should convey the intended meaning of the original author and take into account the subject matter, register, text type, purpose, and audience. Because the NVTC's customers depend on the accuracy and integrity of the translations it produces, the NVTC is committed to providing publishable quality translations.

  • High Quality Guaranteed – Vigorous Quality Assurance program employed from project concept to completion; all translations are reviewed by a second, professional-level linguist to ensure accuracy

  • Professional Linguists – NVTC employs skilled linguists at all clearance levels who are rigorously tested on both their knowledge of the language and their translation skills


The NVTC has translated to and from over 120 languages!
