From Independent Contractors

Vivian L. Gepp

Spanish Interpreter and Translator,
St. Paul, MN

“Working with TransLanguages has not only been a source of work but an amazing educative window into the world of accurate and appropriate interpreting. The support, knowledge and instruction I have received from this agency is what makes it unique and separate from all the rest. TransLanguages gives great importance to clients and interpreters alike and strives hard to ensure compatibility between the interpreter and the assignment.”

Osman M. Abdulle

Somali Court Interpreter

“I am an independent Somali language court interpreter. I have worked for Adriana Trevino for almost seven years as an independently contracted interpreter. During this time, I got to experience first-hand Ms. Trevino's professionalism, dedication, and character. Ms. Trevino is probably one of the most uplifting, honest, and ethical persons that I had ever known. Adriana to me has been a mentor, colleague, and a business partner. I would recommend anyone to establish a business relationship with her because my experience of working with her has been extremely positive.”

Viviana Szleifer

Certified Spanish Court Interpreter
Minneapolis, MN

“I have been an independent contractor with TransLanguages for the last couple of years. TransLanguages has been a model company for me as an Interpreter to work with. I was always able to count on TransLanguages to keep their commitments. Assignment information always clear, accurate and on time. Payments, always accurate, and on time. Interesting and challenging assignments that keep me on the edge and eager to get better at what I do. Clients always shared with me their compliments about their experience with TransLanguages.”

Ion Capatina

Romanian Interpreter and Translator

"I highly consider TransLanguages as one of the top professionals in the field. The job assignments went perfectly smooth, starting with job details, transportation, mileage, parking, and ending with compensation. TransLanguages care about the people they do business with. Not only jobs, but pleasant experiences!"

From Clients

Jenn Dossenko, Paralegal

Ratgen Law Firm
St. Paul, MN

“TransLanguages provides not only the best interpreters and translators but also exceptional customer service. The first time I used TransLanguages, we needed an interpreter in less than an hour. I remembered the direct mail postcard that had been sent to me. I also knew that most, if not all, of the other translator services that I had previously used could never provide the help we needed on our schedule or at a reasonable cost. When I called, Adriana was friendly, courteous and mindful of the deadline that I suddenly put her under. I cringed when I asked her rates, knowing the costs of other such services. When she quoted her rates, I could have reached through the phone line and given her the biggest hug! (As a Plaintiff Paralegal, I am ever mindful of the costs on a client's file.) In the end, and in probably less than an hour, we had what we needed when we needed it. And, it has been that way ever since. In the last two years, it has been my absolute joy and privilege to work with Adriana and TransLanguages. Reasonable translation services, friendly and efficient customer service and excellent interpreters and translators. That is what Adriana and TransLanguages are all about.”

Thomas C. Plunkett

Attorney at Law
St. Paul, MN

“I have worked with TransLanguages often and have always been pleased.”

Good,fast and courteous response when called. Very capable interpreter.”

Minneapolis Police Sergeant - Family Violence Unit

Tonja Waring



“Because my business was quickly expanding into Mexico, I needed a fast turn-around on marketing materials in Spanish. Not only was Adriana Trevino of TransLanguages expedient, I was told by native Mexicans that her translation was exceptional! My business has expanded into numerous Mexico cities as a result. Thank you, Adriana!”
