Document Translation

We have experience translating an array of documents that range from birth certificates and transcripts, research studies, training modules and newsletters, to lawsuits and settlements. Our translations read as if they were written in the target language, but reflect the same tone and style of the source document.

We offer translation services in Spanish, French, Italian, German, Mandarin Chinese, Arabic, Japanese, Portuguese, Karen, Burmese, Kinyarwanda, Swahili and many other languages. All translations have a minimum of $50, and any charges above that depend on the language involved. CHICLE can also provide certificates of accuracy and notarized certificates of translation.

Live Interpretation

CHICLE sends intepreters to all kinds of events for consecutive or simultaneous interpreting- meetings, staff training, medical appointments, conferences, and more.


Simultaneous interpretation is suitable for meetings or lectures, in which the speaker does not pause for the interpreter. Often the interpreter will use equipment (radio headsets) to offer interpretation to individuals in a larger group. Consecutive interpretation is suitable for personal meetings or medical appointments, in which the speakers will pause after each sentence to allow the interpreter to communicate their statement. We offer interpreting services in Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Korean, Japanese, French, Portuguese, Arabic, Burmese, Karen and Kinyarwanda/Kinyamulenge.
