Interpretation and Document Translation Services

With Language Services from Magna, you can communicate confidently with international or Limited English Proficiency clients, partners, staff and other parties to ensure the success of your case, negotiation or business deal – anywhere in the world, in any language. Magna works directly with the most qualified and skilled interpreters and translators in the business.

Our linguists are experienced, college-educated professionals with native or near-native fluency in English and one or more other languages. All have many years of experience in legal, medical and business settings and most are certified by the State, the Federal Government or a professional accrediting body.

All interpreters and translators who work for Magna must sign a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement. That means you can feel secure that any information revealed in your meeting will not be revealed to outside parties.

Our on-demand telephonic interpretation services provide clients with the fastest connections in the industry and 24/7 service for any language.

All our interpreters have many years of successful interpretation experience in legal, medical and business settings. Most are also state or federally certified.

On-Site Interpreting

Magna provides interpreters in all major languages and metropolitan areas for all types of events, including:

  • Depositions
  • Trials
  • Mediations
  • Meetings
  • Conferences
  • Medical Examinations

Less common languages and dialects are available upon request.

If an interpreter with the specific skill set is not available in your immediate area, we can arrange for an interpreter to travel to the meeting site, or, if there are budgetary restrictions, to interpret via telephone or videoconferencing.

All our interpreters have many years of successful interpretation experience in legal, medical and business settings. Most are also state or federally certified.

Document Translation

Magna provides document translations in any language combination, subject matter and volume.

All document translations are conducted by linguists with higher education degrees and expertise in the subject matter. Most are also accredited by professional organizations such as the American Translators Association. Furthermore, they only translate into their native language.

To ensure accuracy, all translations are edited and proofread by a second linguist, and in some cases, a third.

If you only need a rough translation with no additional proofreading, we can work within your budget to meet your specific needs.

Ted Schaer, Esq. - Zarwin, Baum, DeVito Kaplan, Schaer & Toddy PC

There are many firms providing quality document translation. I get a call once a week. The main reason I work with Magna is their ability to be flexible. I had a difficult client that required a fast turnaround and of course they didn’t want to pay for the rush. My rep was able to pull the necessary levers to meet the time line at a price my client could afford.

Darren C. Barreiro - Partner, Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis LLP

I’ve taken hundreds if not thousands of depositions as an attorney and I go back to Magna each time because they are easy to deal with, deliver flawless transcripts and they are always accessible as they operate on a 24/7 basis.

Michael Caplan - Naples Conference, FL 2012

I was looking for a case valuation solution for a high exposure series of cases and Magna was able to create a system to provide me with what I needed. I have used JuryEvaluator on several cases and the results have been predictive and instrumental in resolving cases!
