#31DaysofBiz, Day 16: Choice Translating, Inc.

The Crowns of Enterprise Awards are tomorrow, May 17th. In preparation, it only makes sense to celebrate past award winner, Choice Translating, Inc., as today’s #31daysofbiz featured business.

Founded by Michelle Menard in 1995, Choice Translating, Inc. is a full-service linguistic company. In fact, this is the second time we’ve had the opportunity to talk to Michelle–keep reading to learn more!


CBRbiz.com: If you had to choose one thing, what would you want to be the best in the world at? Michelle Menard: I’m fortunate and work with talented, passionate, internationally-minded people, including my husband! I hope our positive impact with clients and linguists all over the world reinforces that, regardless of what medium or language we’re using to communicate, we do it in a positive, respectful way. We make the world a better place – literally – one word at a time.

Choice Translating was launched in a tiny apartment where Michelle lived with her mom and sister in the 90s.

Michelle Menard: While everyone else at home is asleep, I quietly enjoy French-press coffee with milk and local honey while reading the local and international news. Then we eat breakfast with our 6-year-old before the sometimes frantic, mad-dash to get her out the door to school and myself to the office. Weekend routines are slower and include gathering eggs at our farm in the foothills.

CBRbiz.com: How would you like for people to remember you? And your business?

Michelle Menard: As connectors. We help make the world smaller, more connected, and a better place to be through language services.
