About

Arbor Translations offers superior translation services for international events ranging in size from small, one-day meetings to multi-day trade fairs in an array of language combinations. Legal hearings, business negotiations, medical congresses, academic symposia, factory and field visits, press conferences and expos are just some of the areas where Arbor Translations has helped clients successfully meet their on-site, multilingual communication needs.

Interpreters are carefully assigned to each event based on academic and professional experience with the topic and linguistic combination, are invited to work directly on each event (no commissioned intermediary), and are vetted members of the Brazilian Association of Professional Conference Interpreters (APIC) and/or the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC).

Document translation is provided by professionals certified in the corresponding language combination by the American Translator Association (ATA) and/or Brazilian Translators Association (ABRATES).
