Professional Translation Firm

The firm was founded in 1984 by its president, Lise Contant. For this family business, ensuring client satisfaction and providing on-point translations are critical missions.
Over the course of the firm’s existence, we have translated millions of words in the right-listed areas. Our longevity can be explained by our mission, which consists of staying in tune with our clients’ needs, meeting their deadlines and providing them with exceptional quality.


More Than 40 Years of Linguistic Experience

Services linguistiques Ergé has been providing translation, revision, concordance and linguistic consulting services in Canada’s both official languages for over 40 years.

Our prestigious clients work in several highly interesting areas and industries, including:

Intergovernmental and international relations
Information technology
Health services
Industrial manufacturing


Guaranteed Confidentiality
We keep all the written or verbal information that we receive from our clients in strict confidentiality.

A high-quality translation is easy to read and flows naturally, while remaining completely faithful to the meaning of the original version. In contrast, if your message is poorly translated, your readers will stop reading it. When you send your texts to us, you can rest assured that they will be translated and written with the greatest care. Our translators are talented writers, and each translation is systematically revised and proofread. This is how we ensure that your messages are faithfully translated so your readers can understand them and read them with interest. We’re flexible, and we understand that unforeseen events can occur. So, please don’t hesitate to call upon us if you’re ever in a bind, even when the deadlines are very tight!




Over the years, we’ve served clients working in different industries and areas, including the mining, paper, steel and automobile industries, as well as federal politics and the municipal sector. Our determination to meet the needs of our clients has enabled us to forge long-term relations with many of them. In addition, our ability to perform the required research to adapt texts to different realities or a particular target audience has allowed us to meet the needs of organizations with an international presence.
