Our leaders all come from strong language backgrounds, and our employees are treated as professionals. We work hard, but we offer flexible work schedules that are compatible with everyone’s personal reality. We provide our employees with personalized support and give them stimulating assignments.

I love my co-workers and the atmosphere. The environment is structured, but not rigid. We help and a learn a lot from one another, both professionally and personally, not to mention the fun we have! Versacom makes room for everyone’s personality and particularities.

 
Hélène Morissette, translator

After my first internship at Versacom, I was able to follow up immediately with a second one and stay on for another three months. When these six intensive months of well-supervised, interesting work came to an end, I knew I would be happy joining Versacom as soon as I graduated.

 
Simon Beaulieu Gélinas, translator

I began at Versacom as a financial translator. After a few years, I was eager to diversify my knowledge and work with a different team. Making the shift was no problem. I now work on a variety of projects, many of which have a marketing bent. I can rely on the support of revisers who specialize in the field—and I love it!

 
Simon Cloutier, translator

I am very comfortable with translation technologies, so I offered to develop workshops to offer my co-workers valuable tips and show them some of the lesser-known features. It’s very stimulating for me and helps everyone work even more effectively.

 
Édith Groulx-Robert, translator, reviser and language team leader

Management and translation are my two passions; being a project manager at Versacom lets me combine them. When you’re assigned a big project and you have to deliver to deadline, in compliance with the client’s specs and every last language, technical and administrative particularity… Well, it’s a real confidence booster! Very stimulating, especially when you know that even the tiniest detail can have huge repercussions

 
Pierre Soly, project manager

We’ve had a solid English translation team for at least as long as I’ve been with the company, and it only continues to grow and get stronger. We work on many high-profile projects and the variety in our work is a huge plus for me. My team’s made up of warm, competent people who are always ready and willing to help their peers. I am really proud of what we do here and, more importantly, of how we do it.

 
Leanne Legault, translator and team leader

We all learn so much from each other as members of a multigenerational team with young professionals fresh out of university all the way up to the most senior translators—some of whom graduated from the first-ever translation programs. It’s a supportive and collaborative environment that’s deeply rewarding and stimulating, with so many people contributing not only their expertise, but also their calm, warm and positive attitude.

 
Claude Saint-Jean, proofreader

We have a whole team that specializes in technology management and development. What’s most stimulating for us is Versacom’s professional approach. Anything we do involving technology is based on a thorough understanding of what language professionals do for their clients and the kinds of challenges they face. Our achievements are in a class by themselves.

 
Jean-François Beaulac, R&D team leader
