​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Trans-Type International was founded in 1976 by Dr. Alberto Adan, a Cuban native. After retiring from the Dow Chemical Company, Dr. Adan was able to use ​his professional connections to secure foreign professionals from different fields to establish his team of translators in over fifteen countries.

Arturo Adan, Alberto's son, joined the business after earning his business degree from Central Michigan University. With over 35 years of experience, he is now operating the family business.

Arturo is committed to quality services and customer satisfaction. Every project is personally executed through his direct supervision. The success and growth of our company is attributed to two essential components: quality and service. We are dedicated to providing our customers with superior translations at a reasonable price in a reasonable time frame.

Often translations require a specific dialect or expertise. Our professional translators have degrees in various technical disciplines, including engineering, chemistry, and instrumentation. We are committed to finding the right translator to meet your unique translation needs.​

Over the years, we have expanded our services. Today we provide Notary Services and Computer Assistance and Education.
