INVISIBLE Translation Minimizes Carbon Footprint
Based near Montreal, Canada, INVISIBLE Translation is a professional language services bureau that provides high-quality Canadian French and English as well as Spanish translation, advertising adaptation, editing, revision, proofreading, and copy writing services. It is also a green language services provider that conducts its business in accordance with respect for the planet, the environment, and future generations.
INVISIBLE Translation was officially certified as a Green Business by the Institute for Green Business Certification (IGBC) on November 29th, 2013. After several weeks of demanding assessment, the IGBC found that INVISIBLE Translation’s business practices were environmentally responsible and compatible with a clean, green business model.
Certified translator and President of INVISIBLE Translation Daniel Mainville remarked, “My colleagues and I believe that the translation of written material should be invisible in the sense that it should be read as if it were an original document, rather than a translation. We wanted to apply the same concept to environmental matters to keep the carbon footprint generated by our operations as close to invisible as possible. It was a moral imperative that led us to commit to the certification process.” To this end, INVISIBLE Translation takes practical steps every day to reduce its ecological footprint. Employees read documents on screen as much as possible; print only what is absolutely necessary; give preference to 100% recycled paper; recycle everything that is printed; and preserve information electronically.
