VALOROUS has an established capability to provide language translation and interpretation support to agencies throughout the U.S. government—either directly or through well-established contract vehicles. VALOROUS has developed this capability by tapping into a cadre of skilled linguists in ethnic communities across America—U.S. citizens with professional translation experience who have met interpreting needs in CONUS or in sometimes challenging OCONUS environments. VALOROUS translators are all certified at a minimum ILR 3/3 in both English and the target languages, to ensure each linguist is capable of providing crisp, clean and precise interpretation services in situations where ambiguity is an unacceptable risk. VALOROUS language capabilities include, but are not limited to, Middle Eastern and South Asian languages, European, Slavic and Romance languages, and Asian and Far Eastern languages including Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. Our linguists are proficient in all modalities, including Writing, Speaking, Listening, Reading and Translation. We can provide direct support to negotiations and meetings as well as top-level document exploitation services. Our expert linguists have monitored international media from CONUS and have traveled to support OCONUS translation requirements. Our services are discreet, professional and timely—and can involve an entire team of qualified linguists supporting your long-term contract needs. VALOROUS can meet your translation challenge so you can meet your program goals.
