Our purpose is to promote the learning of foreign languages in Greater Pittsburgh. We acknowledge the importance of such skills in our present socio-political and economic environment, and aim to equip our clients with the necessary tools to achieve success domestically and internationally. Our mission is to become the organization responsible for creating more bilinguals in Greater Pittsburgh than any other of its category.
Interpretation and Translation Services
Understandably, technological translation is a convenient and inexpensive tool for quick-fix, and inconsequential purposes, however the quality is often debatable and the product, unprofessional. The primary concern with mechanical interpretation or translation is that technology does not understand the meaning of the document/ source whatsoever; it directly issues a word-for-word literal rendition of the subject without regarding semantics, tone, or cultural contexts.
ADL is comprised of competent and informed native speakers who have established themselves in the United States but are also very aware of the contemporary transformations of their mother tongue and its culture.
We provide interpretation services for many clients, including: Pittsburgh Public Schools, Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, Human Services Administration Organization, and various other non-profit agencies.
