About IDEM, professional translation company in Montreal

Founded in 1991 by four translators, Idem offers professional translation, editing, revision, copywriting and adaptation services, with an emphasis on English and French communications.

We’ve grown steadily over the last 25 years without ever losing sight of the core values that have informed our actions and approach from the start: professionalism, listening, respect, cooperation and openness.

These values foster close collaboration and enduring partnerships. They also represent the strengths that make us stand out and allow us to meet the needs of our customers, regardless of their size, field or requirements.

Succession training

Another reason we stand out: the importance we have placed from the start on training and developing emerging professionals. To offset the growing shortage of qualified language professionals, each year we welcome new interns as part of our ongoing program.

Whether their field is health, education, telecommunications or retail, all of our clients seek the same thing: a language partner who is both professional and accessible in every sense of the term.

What do we mean by “accessible”? We mean being flexible, easy to reach and available. We mean personalized solutions that offer maximum value in terms of quality and cost. And we mean a collaborative approach that ensures pleasant and productive relations.
