Don’t let anything get lost in translation.

Overcoming language barriers is simply smart business.


We’re proud to have some of the best translators and interpreters in the business on our team. We know that the quality of our professional services is based on the quality of the professionals we hire. 

The right choice.

Translating and interpreting are crucial elements in order to avoid lost revenue, non-compliance issues, and the embarrassment of incorrectly conveyed cultural context. In today’s competitive marketplace, businesses, government entities, and schools can no longer settle for low-quality translations or  inexperienced interpreters.

The right team.

As a member of the American Translators Association, Back to Basics maintains the highest standards and our employment process is rigorous.

More than simply bilingual.

Our document translators possess the vital cultural awareness to accurately convey not only the words, but also the subtle nuances of each document. In addition to a mandatory proficiency test, our document translation professionals possess a minimum of 3-5 years translating experience and a bachelor’s degree.

The best credentials.

More than 70% of our employees have advanced degrees in specific languages or linguistics. Many of our medical interpreters also possess Bridging the Gap advanced medical interpreting certifications. All Back to Basics employees undergo pre-interviews, face to face interviews, detailed reference checks, and criminal background checks.
