Minnesota Translation and Interpretation Services
Located in the Midwest, Minneapolis is a surprisingly cosmopolitan metropolis. Its residents are proud of the myriad of international peoples and cultures that consider the region home. Minneapolis and St Paul are also home to some of the nation’s – and world’s – most famous Fortune 500 companies, including 3M, General Mills, Target, BestBuy and U.S. Bancorp. With an international airport supplying direct flights to both Asia and Europe, the Twin Cities areas are a great place to host or attend international conferences, summits or marketing events.
Chang-Castillo and Associates (CCA) provide conference interpreters, professional translators, and global language services dedicated to facilitating clear, accurate, and nuanced communication so your brand shines brightly amidst the pack of competitors.
We pair native-speaking linguists with your team with respect to your niche industry, forming a seamless integration. Every word our experienced interpreters speak, and every text our translators render from your written materials, will flow naturally and seamlessly to your target audiences.
There’s a reason why we’ve achieved a reputation for being the industry’s platinum standard. We invite you to contact us to learn more about our services, and how we can help you accomplish your goals at upcoming Minneapolis, St Paul, Rochester or nearby area’s conferences, summits or international symposiums.

Experienced conference interpreters keep it apples-to-apples
Interpreting the spoken word has as much – or more – to do with intuition and the interpreting of emotion, body language, and tone as it does word-to-word conversions.
For this reason, you deserve to work with experienced conference interpreters who ensure your proverbial apples are interpreted with the same accurate meaning and tone as you intended. Otherwise, your target audiences can wind up with an apples-to-lemons outcome that leaves everyone with a sour taste in their mouths.
CCA offers both simultaneous and consecutive interpreting services, and we’re happy to help you establish which mode makes the most sense for your itinerary. Our conference interpreters have impeccable credentials and work experience, including:
- Graduate degrees from the world’s most reputable accredited linguistic programs;
- Certification or accreditation from at least one of the following: United Nations, Federal Government of Canada, U.S. Department of State, European Union, NAATI Level 5 – Senior Level Interpreter (Australia);
- Membership in or certification from peer-reviewed industry organizations such as TAALS or AIIC; and
- Proof of at least 200 hours or five years of conference interpreting experience.
CCA intentionally seeks interpreters who have a passion for people, as well as languages. That way, as you share your materials and prepare them for your event, they easily assimilate with your event team, making communication that much more fluid.
Looking for a team of interpreters you can count on to precisely convey your messages into other languages and cultures? Contact CCA and let’s get started!
Professional translation services you can depend on
You understand how important high-quality translations are when your brand’s reputation is on the line, or when your target audience’s wellbeing depends on the accuracy of translated safety or training manuals. Even without “life-and-death” scenarios, your company’s reputation is vulnerable when promoting products or services, or providing information in a foreign language.
The smallest mistake or incorrect turn-of-phrase can be awkward, irritating, and potentially offensive to the reader. That’s why the translation team at CCA uses a no-fail, three-tier quality assurance system.
First, your translation project is given to one of our dedicated project managers who facilitates its conversion from beginning to end, and who also serves as your personal point of contact throughout the project. Then, all documents (no matter how big or small) go through three separate rounds: translation, proofreading, and editing. Thus, we guarantee 100% accuracy and natural flow for your translations, as well as complete customer satisfaction. We always ensure your translation aligns with your target audiences’ cultural sensitivities.
We translate every type of document, including:
- Training and technical manuals
- Medical and pharmaceutical packaging, inserts and brochures
- Marketing brochures
- Corporate communications
- Government documents
- Social media content

Facilitate your interpreting and networking abilities with the right rental equipment
Many of Minneapolis’s largest conference and tradeshow venues offer interpreting rental equipment, but are you 100% confident they’ll serve you well? Time and time again we’ve received 9-1-1 requests from clients just like you, who trusted the venue’s advertisements, and then found the equipment lacking, malfunctioning, or of a far less quantity than they agreed upon.
CCA offers an array of conference and small-event interpreting equipment, including soundproof booths, interpreter consoles, portable headsets, and microphones. Our equipment is meticulously maintained and comes along with a conference technician and full A/V support, so you never have to suffer embarrassing equipment glitches.
We also provide innovative teleconferencing equipment, allowing you to connect with prospects or partners unable to attend your Minneapolis event – or to continue the conversation once you’ve returned to your home offices. Again, these services are paired with conference technicians and the support of vetted language professionals.
