Montréal, October 18, 2018 – Leading Canadian translation agency Versacom is proud to announce that the Quebec government has entrusted it with the French translation of a significant body of literature on artificial intelligence, commonly known as AI.
Empowering French-speaking experts to lead the AI revolution
AI is booming, and Montréal has become a nerve centre for innovation in this field. “A next-generation industry is taking shape right before our eyes, one that has led to the creation of huge amounts of reference materials and instructional content, primarily in English,” says Versacom President and General Manager François Chartrand.
The Government of Quebec’s OQLF has mandated Versacom with compiling and translating 500 pages worth of foundational content on the subject of artificial intelligence, for use in schools from the elementary to the post-secondary level, along with newly developed material aimed at the corporate world’s technical managers.
Versacom is one of the first companies, and the first translation agency, to contribute to this major project, which will make key AI contents more widely available and help French-speaking experts develop top skills so they can play a leading role in the AI revolution.
Capitalizing on proven terminology and technology expertise
Over the years, Versacom has built a solid reputation in translation and terminology for the fields of information technology and AI. Not surprisingly, its client base now includes hundreds of IT innovators and businesses. The agency also has a certified R&D centre with seasoned experts in language technology—which is very closely linked to AI. Versacom is therefore a natural choice for this project, which is perfectly in line with the company’s operations and business profile.

It offers a full range of translation services for any of the world’s languages, as well as all relevant support services.
