In addition to its amazing cuisine and culture, the Pacific Northwest is one of the most important technology and industrial manufacturing hubs in the nation. Each year, businesses and government agencies come together for Alliance Northwest, the largest trade show and government contracting conference in the region, and Avantpage is proud to be a part of this year’s event.

Held in Puyallup, WA, March 9-10, 2016, the event features keynotes by officials from the Departments of Defense and Navy as well as presentations from important associations like the Washington Small Business Development Center and Washington State Department of Commerce. A variety of exciting sessions bring attendees together to discuss important issues surrounding state and federal contracting, construction law, and compliance in manufacturing.


Diversity in the Pacific Northwest

The Pacific Northwest is home to several indigenous languages as well as a growing population of Spanish, Russian, and Vietnamese-speakers. In fact, Russian is the third most commonly spoken language in Oregon after English and Spanish.

As the area’s workforce grows more diverse, so too, do the responsibilities of local businesses to provide work-related documentation to Limited English Proficient (LEP) employees in their native language. Our Seattle-based team of qualified specialists understands the unique translation challenges facing companies in the Pacific Northwest. We provide culturally sensitive and appropriate document translation, website localization, and multilingual desktop publishing for both small and large-scale projects.

Our quick turnaround times, exceptional customer service, expert linguists, and use of cutting-edge translation technology make us a top choice for a wide range of industries, including government, manufacturing, construction, and healthcare. Our knowledge, expertise, and experience are just part of the equation, though. It’s our steadfast dedication to customers that has truly made us an industry standout.
