We Know Chicago

It was here the term jazz was coined and the atom was first split. Wrigley Field remains the 2nd oldest ballpark in the MLB. And the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) was crowned the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. In short, Chicago boasts a community as diverse as the city’s rich history. As a result, roughly 16% of Chicago’s residents do not speak English as a first language, per the 2015 census. In 2015, Chicago’s City Council passed an ordinance. This ordinance ensures immigrants can access critical services in languages commonly-spoken in the city. The top languages spoken in Chicago, other than English, include:

  • Spanish
  • Mandarin
  • Polish
  • Arabic
  • Hindi
  • Urdu

Because we know quality translation is critical for all industries, our quality management system is ISO Certified. This means our translation process follows industry best practices from start to finish. We also provide certified translations for legal use. For example, we supply notarized translations required for law firms or court cases. In addition, hard copies are always available at no extra charge.
