Back in 1987, Serge Bélair, a seasoned translator, started up his own firm with a view to providing top-quality translation and localization services and turn Montreal into a global translation hub. At the time, there was a dearth of major players providing such services in Montreal, despite the city’s cultural diversity and boundless opportunities. This void would be filled by Traductions Serge Bélair, soon to be renamed TRSB.

Over the years, Serge recruited top-notch, hard-working language specialists who shared his vision. He taught them the importance of professionalism, integrity, and loyalty. In fact, several of those early collaborators are still with TRSB or have become regular contributors.

From the outset, the primary purpose of TRSB has been to serve its customers well, at each and every stage of the business relationship. That is why the firm has always been on the cutting edge of technology, ever on the look-out for innovative solutions to make things easier for its clients.

This strategy was the key to the firm’s success. Today, TRSB is one of North America’s leading translation providers, offering cost-effective, scalable, and reliable language solutions that are tailored to its clients’ needs.

With a team of nearly 300 experienced professionals working out of its head office in Montreal, TRSB offers its services regionally, nationally, and internationally, translating into over 100 languages and serving a prestigious client base across four continents.
