We are your full-service language partner. Paragon is among the fastest growing language services providers in the country, with a diverse clientele including Fortune 500 Companies, local small businesses, non-profits and government agencies from the local to federal level. Our niche is in the life sciences (especially pharmaceuticals), entertainment (indie films to mainstream TV shows), and multicultural marketing sectors (brands, marketing departments, and ad agencies alike), but we face any language-related challenge with gusto. Our home office's expert project managers and technology innovators are supported by a global network of professional linguists, who join forces to deliver premium translation, localization, multimedia, and consulting services, and who eliminate the linguistic barriers to unlocking your organization's potential. In a world full of average translations and empty sales promises, Paragon's dedication to quality is what will give your messaging a competitive edge. Excellence is our Common Language!
It may sound like a no-brainer, but Paragon has found that the attention we pay to our clients and the deeply personal relationships that we build with them as a result, are what keeps them coming back. We adapt to your needs, treat your rush jobs like our rush jobs, and keep in close contact with you throughout the duration of the project. We don't turn out the lights until the day's work is done. It is important to us that we deliver stellar work every time, no matter how large or small the request.
We’re not just here to make sales pitches and promises to solve all of your translation problems; we’re here to deliver. We’ve been active in the industry for over 25 years and we know that this is what sets us apart. Many of our competitors are happy to simply churn out translations that are just “good enough.” You know just as we do that good enough is simply not enough, and that your success relies on flawless communication. Our competitors may promise you rock bottom rates and superhuman turnaround times and their results reflect that. We deliver you the best work possible with competitive pricing and quick turnarounds.
We do not assign tasks to the cheapest person (or run your work through some online machine) to cut down costs and increase margins. Instead, Paragon gives you the option of leveraging either our basic or industry specific MT (Machine Translation) engines, or you can have us build a proprietary MT engine just for you, tailoring its memory to YOUR industry, YOUR particular company, and YOUR company’s specific language needs. Whether you need human translation, post-MT editing or quality assurance testing, Paragon will identify phrases and terms already translated and approved and take the time to identify the right words for your tasks. We believe in best-fit translation. A translator working on medical terminology needs a different skill set than someone translating legal terms and conditions for a website. Paragon’s network of translators is not only best-in-class, it’s also bigger. That means that if an expert turns down a job, we have plenty of alternative providers to take over, where competitors tend to filter projects down to someone less qualified just to get the work done.
If you are concerned that your current translation workflow is not producing the quality you need and that your customers demand, working with Paragon is the natural choice. Contact us today!
We have adapted and learned from our clients' needs over the years, so we come to the table with the quantity and quality of experience that other agencies simply can’t match. Even if we are unfamiliar with certain tasks or aspects of the project, we marshal our vast network of contacts, vendors and suppliers, to deliver for you, our clients. You don't stay in business for over a quarter of a century if you don't produce results.
How can we ensure that our work is of the highest quality? It depends entirely on our experienced project managers. They are skilled in analyzing your task, identifying the best technology to support your assignment, selecting the right linguists, ensuring deadlines are met, and making certain that the translations are structurally and stylistically indistinguishable from the original. This means that you don’t have to lay out letters, characters, or words you’re not comfortable with; our experts make sure that everything is flawless.
Paragon Language Services, Inc. was founded in the early 1990s as a two-person company serving Los Angeles County. Paragon quickly gained a reputation for solving problems while exceeding expectations, and began expanding its clientele in Southern California and beyond. Soon, Paragon was providing language solutions to major pharmaceutical companies and clinical research organizations, ad agencies and PR firms, and government agencies at the local, state, and federal levels.
A quarter of a century later, Paragon has grown into a major industry player offering premium language services and cutting-edge language technology solutions to clients globally. Many of our first clients continue to trust us over two decades after our first project with them, which reflects the quality of our work and the client-focused mentality of our staff at every level.
The short answer to who we are is this: we are your ideal translation partner, always focused on making a difference and ensuring that your message delivers the impact you intended, in any language.
Paragon is proud that our success over the years* has given us the opportunity to support great causes and help out in the community.
In addition to supporting and serving with a number of national and international charities, we provide paid time off for our employees who want to volunteer in the community and work with causes that are important to them. Among these are The Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition (GWHFC) serving warm and nutritious meals to homeless people on the streets of Los Angeles; People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) which houses homeless people and restores them to independence.
Paragon offers discounted (and when possible, pro bono) translation services to nonprofits and NGOs. Some of the organizations we have worked with include International Myeloma Foundation, the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation, the Hepatitis B Foundation, the California Hospital Association, Live Earth, The American Association of Museums, The California Appellate Project, The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), and The Internet Society (ISOC).
*Paragon was just recognized for the second straight year by Inc. Magazine as one the fastest growing privately held companies in the US.
