Traducta’s Management Team
Traducta’s success is a result of multiple cohesive facets that enable Traducta’s management, employees and industry-partners to work together to deliver leading translation services for business professionals. As a result, our clients are able to fully rely on Traducta with the trust that they will receive top-shelf and top-quality translation services.
The proof is that more than 25% of our customers have chosen to stay with us for more than 15 years, RFP after RFP and through multitudes of corporate re-structurings and re-organizations. Traducta is solid.
Traducta’s strategies, beliefs, synergies and perspectives are largely derived from its dynamic management team. The following is a list of core management personnel who can always be made available to you.
Yves Desjardins, President & Founder
Yves Desjardins – President and Founder of Traducta
After graduating from Université de Montreal with a degree in Translation, Yves acquired solid experience in translation working for large international corporations such as Merck, Sharp & Dohme, Stelco Canada, RCA Canada and IBM Canada. This wealth of experience, combined with his personal desire to ensure the quality of all things translated, inspired Yves to establish his own translation firm, Traducta, in 1978.
To this day, Yves remains a certified member of professional translator associations such as OTTIAQ (Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec), ATA (American Translators Association) and NCTA (Northern California Translators Association).
