About Us

Let Our Language Specialists Help You Communicate More Effectively

About the Company

Clear communication is the core of an efficient and successful business.  When you work with clients, partners, peers, or the general public who primarily speak another language, it’s critical that the information which is being shared is accurate and clear.  Proper translation ensures that all parties involved in the business deal, case, or project are exactly aligned on the details, no matter which languages are involved.

A-List Communication has worked with numerous Fortune 500 companies, small and medium-sized businesses, and attorneys who require precise interpretation, translation, and transcription services. A-List Communication offers services in over 70 languages, from Chinese to Spanish, to exotic languages such as Tamil, Igbo, and Hmong.  We perform all of our language services with bespoke customer service and a fine-grained attention to detail that you will not find anywhere else.

A-List Communication has been a member of the Northern California Translators Association, a Chapter of American Translators Association (ATA), since 2010.

About Our Projects

Our Project Highlight:

Each year, A-List Communication performs countless multi-lingual transcription and certified translation of discovery evidence for attorneys, law firms and government entities such as the San Francisco Office of the Public Defender.  A-List also provides interpreting services for litigants in Northern California.  As such, A-List plays an integral role in the judicial system.

In 2021, A-List assisted City of San Francisco in broadcasting the Housing Element 2022 Update with the environmental impact reporting and the Bay Area Housing Plan 2050 to its culturally diverse residents by translating and embedding voice recording of the presentation. A-List translated and trans-created for Deaf and Disabled Telecommunications Program (DDTP) to satisfy the need of their large multilingual subscriber base to use the latest smart phone technology. A-List joined forces with Crossings TV, WADOH (Washington Department of Health), CDPH (California Department of Public Health) and UC Davis Health on California’s COVID-19 vaccine efforts by reporting on vaccine related stats and hosting Q&A sessions for the various Chinese speaking communities in the U.S.

In 2020, A-List prepared educational materials about COVID-19 for California Department of Public Health (CDPH) who worked closely with CDC in 20 languages.  We translated large-volume PG&E bankruptcy order documents expeditiously to allow the timely vote of the Spanish-speaking fire victims on the bankruptcy plan.

From 2013 to 2020, A-List translated quarterly reports and any needed documents in many global languages for Tetra Tech DPK to promote access, transparency and efficiency of judicial systems in developing countries.

In 2018 and 2019, A-List assisted City of Santa Clara in disseminating a new ordinance regarding massage establishments and the communications surrounding the regulations to the ethnic communities at issue.

In 2017, A-List translated shopping guides to increase awareness of health foods and choices for low income residents in San Francisco, translated quit smoking campaigns for Department of Public Health, and interpreted for Senator Ted Cruz during a convention in San Francisco.  We provided interpretation services on the “Ghost Ship” fire case in Oakland.

In 2015 and 2016, A-List worked closely with various San Francisco Bay Area cities to prepare a multi-lingual communication roll-out to workers and the general public for the new minimum wage labor law standard.

In 2014, A-List teamed up with the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) in a project to rehabilitate buildings in the San Francisco Tenderloin while enabling residents to remain in the city.  In this project, A-List provided translation and interpretation services to the culturally-diverse resident population of the affected buildings.

About Our Philosophy

Technology is quickly transforming the methods and ease with which we can communicate with one another in our personal and business interactions. The advent of automated online language services is one example of this changing landscape. However, while these types of services may work in some cases, our clients are professionals who demand 100% accuracy and sometimes require a personal touch with projects that are vital to their business.

A-List prides itself on providing our clients with efficient yet accurate and affordable language services. Due to our vast network of highly-skilled linguists, we offer some of the fastest turn-around times in the industry for projects and events, even with short notice. We can be your dedicated language services partner for many years to come.
