Our Life Sciences Story

We believe in extending and improving lives through translation

Avantpage Life Sciences Story

We built Avantpage Life Sciences because we know how difficult it is to navigate highly regulated markets. We provided translation services through our parent company, Avantpage, for more than 20 years, working with some of the largest names in healthcare, education, and elections. We’ve dedicated ourselves to learning, understanding, and tailoring our services to each client’s unique needs and regulations. Life science translation requires the same high service levels, deep industry knowledge, strict adherence to process, and commitment to high quality that distinguishes Avantpage’s work.

Our international expansion began in 2009 when we opened our second location in Mexico City. Six years later, we continued our growth by opening a third location in Warsaw. Our Warsaw office provides extended production hours to our clients and also connects us to the European market.

Now, we are proud to expand our Warsaw office again by offering our translation services to the European life sciences market.

With our offices in the Americas and Europe and our vast network of specialized translators, we can give our clients superior translations and peace of mind.
