About me
A-A Language Services (AALS), a subsidiary of Asian American Media Group, Inc., was founded in 1995 by Garry Guan, a professional Chinese interpreter-translator and a certified mediator for the state of Georgia in the United States. It is one of the top language services companies of the southeastern United States, providing top-quality language services with a speedy turnaround at a reasonable price.

AALS is a comprehensive solutions provider that specializes in handling complex technical requirements in areas ranging from foreign-language typesetting and desktop publishing in all major programs for both PC and Mac environments to subtitling and voiceovers. In the area of translation services, with its owner's strong background in cultural anthropology, AALS provides localization that is sensitive to the nuances of the target audience’s culture. Supported by fonts and tools for more than 2,200 languages and dialects, AALS covers almost all Asian and African languages and other rare tribal and ethnic minority languages across the globe. No matter how unusual the request may be, if there is a solution, AALS can provide it! Over 80 percent of our projects involve supporting other translation companies worldwide as their reliable back office partner.

If you are a project manager, here are three major strengths we can offer you:

1. Support for rare and exotic languages

We are known worldwide for our ability to locate hard-to-find language resources and talent. Other companies turn to us when they are asked to handle a language they've never heard of before, particularly the tribal languages of Asia, Africa, and Latin America (Mienh, Yi, Twi, Fon, Uduk, and Quechua, just to name a few).

2. Satisfying complex technical requirements

We can provide solutions for the most complicated and challenging technical requests, such as providing Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Arabic fonts for the GTE Airfone LCD screen or providing fax-on-demand files in multiple languages for the CDC International Travel Advisory Center.

3. Management of large-volume rush jobs

We can assemble large teams of translators on a moment's notice to tackle large-volume jobs in need of immediate turnaround. In March 2008, we received a request at noon on a Wednesday from a Dublin-based translation company to translate 30 documents totaling over 150,000 words from five different languages into U.S. English, with a deadline to deliver the work by close of business on Friday of that same week - in other words, in just over two days. We took on the challenge, and got it done to our client's total satisfaction.

WHY SHOULD YOU USE US INSTEAD OF FREELANCERS:

1. It will save you time and project management headaches.

2. We have access to more resources in any given language, especially rare and exotic languages and dialects.

3. We have the know-how and capability to provide software support for Asian, African and other non-standard scripts and fonts.

4. You get all of these benefits and more for the price of a freelancer, or only a little bit more.
