An experienced team of translators
Éric Plante is the co-founder and director of CTC Translation. He is a highly experienced translator and editor. In addition to more than 20 years of work experience, he is a seasoned communication specialist with a keen interest in financial and economic matters and vast knowledge of the business world.
In our field, understanding how business works and how companies operate is a differentiating asset. It’s what allows us to understand and appreciate source documents, even when they’re not drafted by professional writers.
Companies use our services because we understand the content they provide to us, which is the first requirement for successful translation. (And no, this ability to understand content isn’t widespread in the translation community)
Éric Plante’s right-hand man at CTC is Patrick Bezeau, Translator and Chief Coordinator. Patrick is a graduate of the translation program at Université de Montréal. In addition to his linguistic and translation skills, he has extensive customer service experience. He is CTC’s point person for our many clients and suppliers. Every day, Éric Plante, Patrick Bezeau, and CTC’s team of 30 translators respond to requests from a wide range of industries.
At CTC, we entrust the right document to the right person. For instance, your advertising copy is handled by the writers and translators with the most flair and not by our accounting or insurance specialists. Similarly, your legal documents are handled by legal experts and legal translation specialists and not by botany or music specialists (yes, we have those, too!)
As a result, whatever the nature of your content (general or technical), it’s always managed by the right person with the right skill set.

Here’s an extensive though not exhaustive list of fields in which we provide expert translation and linguistic services :
- Advertising, marketing, sales
