Translingua at work for Immigrants

2019 Holiday donation

This holiday season we would like to thank all of our clients, linguists, our friends and families for their continued support, cooperation and friendship. Thanks to your contributions, TransLingua continues to bridge cultural gaps, bring people together, and facilitate international communication. In this spirit, TransLingua is happy to announce its continued partnership with Intercambio in Boulder, CO by supporting this organization’s mission with a holiday donation toward its upcoming event COMEDY for CAMBIO ON April 17, 2020. Together we strive to improve immigrant lives by uniting communities across cultures and helping to provide resources and access to education and job opportunities.

WMBE Certification & Immigration

At Translingua the year 2019 was clearly marked by increased access to NY City and State opportunities through our MWBE certification and the theme of Immigration. At the very beginning of the year, we started working for Catholic Charities in the Archdiocese of New York. Under the motto Providing Help – Creating Hope Catholic Charities has a 100-year legacy of strengthening families, feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless as well as providing legal services for asylum seekers in New York State. Catholic Charities reached out to Translingua for written translations and interpretation services for asylum meetings and interviews. Thanks to our MWBE Certification by the State of New York we met the qualification criteria, and we have been assisting the hard working lawyers at Catholic Charities ever since.

In the Spring, Make the Road NY, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to building the power of immigrant and working class communities to achieve dignity and justice, chose TransLingua based on our experience in this field and our New York State MWBE Certification. We are very proud of this cooperation that has resulted in several projects, including the translation of guidelines, posters, and other written documents to help spread information in the immigrant communities about access to health care, education, job opportunities and their legal rights.

In the fall of 2019, Translingua was contacted by the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) based on our New York City MWBE Certification. We were selected to provide interpretation services in support of this organization’s mission: Unite immigrants, members and allies so all New Yorkers can thrive. Since September we have been providing interpreters to assist NYIC at its free Community Resource Events for immigrants.

The languages we support for Catholic Charities, Make the Road NY and the New York Immigration Coalition include Arabic, Bengali, Cantonese, Filipino, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Nepali, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian, and Urdu.

Thank You!

A big THANK YOU to all of our translators and interpreters who have worked very hard in support of the New York State immigration population! We look forward to continuing our work for Catholic Charities, Make the Road NY, and the New York Immigration Coalition and many other immigration organizations and lawyers next year!

Interpretation Services

In interpretation there is no chance for a second take or an edit. Whether you need interpreting services for a large conference or a one-on-one meeting, you require the highest level of professional interpreters to ensure that your communication is crystal clear and perfectly understood. TransLingua has the resources to provide interpreters who are experienced and skilled, have a background in your area, and are fluent in both the source and target languages.

  • Simultaneous interpretation is used for large conferences and gatherings during which the interpreter is speaking at the same time as the person delivering an address. For this setting, TransLingua also offers convenient equipment rental options.
  • Consecutive interpretation is used for small meetings, depositions, court proceedings, and medical settings: the interpreter repeats what has just been said.
  • Personal interpreters are available for informal settings for either individuals or groups.

Translingua also offers convenient interpretation equipment rental options and technician services for events of all sizes. We can provide full booths, table-top booths and portable transmitters, conference microphones, delegate headsets, and any other equipment that you may require. Our equipment can also be installed to complement other audio/visual services for your event.

TransLingua is proud to present this guide to interpretation put together by one of our esteemed colleagues!
