We are proud to serve a diverse group of industries and strive to provide the most reliable, accurate, confidential and professional language services.

Our Commitment to Accurate Translation
The development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) or machine translators might be tempting for an inexpensive, quick translation, but it is not a recommended solution for your important communication needs. AI/machine translators are not human and do not have human experience. AI/machine translators will mistranslate idioms, dialects, and figures of speech, often translating them word for word without understanding their deeper meaning. Human interpreters and translators, on the other hand, have an instinct for the regional variations of a language and its idiosyncrasies. Important documents should be translated by humans to ensure the meaning is not lost.
Our interpreters and translators are certified, authorized, or qualified and have gone through a rigorous selection process. We take seriously the guidelines and directives from The Joint Commission, The American Healthcare Association (AHCA) and the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) as well as the standards for practice dictated by the main interpreters and translators’ associations (ATA, IMIA, CHIA, NCIHC).
Our team follows a strict Code of Ethics, understands the importance of remaining impartial, and keeps all the information disclosed on the job confidential.
ASAP is deeply committed with language access issues. Removing language barriers for LEP (Limited English Proficient) individuals will allow them to fully integrate with the main stream community; therefore our involvement with advocacy organizations such as DES’s BDAG (Business Diversity Advisory Group), WASCLA (Washington State Coalition for Language Access) and AHANA Multi-Ethnic Business Association.
