We use the services of highly qualified and experienced freelance professionals to ensure that the information you entrust to us reaches the target audience with the message you want.

Send us your documents by e-mail in soft copy (Word, PDF, scanned, etc.) or bring them in to us in hard copy and we will get them back to you as quickly as possible, at a cost that is competitive. The turn-over time depends on the length, nature and format of the document.

Billing is based on the number of words in the source document and rates are degressive from 20,000 words onwards. A rush fee of 30% is charged on all overnight jobs over 5 pages in length or for all same-day jobs.

Our translations are accepted and recognised by all national authorities and Ministries of Trinidad & Tobago.


We offer professional conference interpreting services and equipment that respect international standards and best practices. Our interpreters are all professionally trained and experienced and our equipment is all ISO-certified. Our rates are competitive.

We work with our clients to adapt our services to the needs of their meetings as follows:

  • Consecutive interpreting: the format of the meeting does not require specialised equipment;
  • Simultaneous interpreting: large and/or formal meetings that require interpreters’ booth(s) and professional equipment;
  • Whispering interpreting: very small group(s) of foreign language speakers within a meeting (no more than two persons ideally) .

The following Conference Equipment is available for rental:

  • 5 interpreting cabins
  • Wireless receivers
  • Interpreting consoles
  • Transmitters, and
  • Table-top microphones.
