About Metaphrasis:
At Metaphrasis, we provide professional translation services and interpreter services in Chicago and around the country to ensure that people are understood completely. It is not enough to simply translate the words of a document or conversation; words and phrases have meaning and context behind them that a literal translation may miss. Our interpreters and translators will understand and account for contexts and meanings for complete accuracy.

Through our language translation services, we can translate important documents including legal and medical documents, websites, video and audio transcripts, Braille, sign language, and more. We can also help businesses and institutions by providing interpreters to be at their side in everyday operations, to the biggest conferences and events.
