Q: How would you describe your business?A:
Rachel Arseneau-Ferguson and Nathalie Levesque
Today, Transmed employs nearly 70 people (99% women) and about 20 freelancers, all working remotely, mainly in New Brunswick and Quebec, with the exception of three employees at head office.
Since its inception, Transmed has been providing medical transcription services to many clients, mainly in Quebec. They are mostly hospitals, such as Centre hospitalier universitaire de Québec (CHUQ), McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, Hôpital de la Cité-de-la-Santé and many other health care facilities and medical clinics.
Since 2008, Transmed has also offered translation services from English to French and from French to English in a number of fields, such as healthcare, tourism, agriculture, and administration. The majority of clients in this sector are from New Brunswick (New Brunswick Translation Bureau, Dialogue NB, CBDC, ACOA, AFMNB). However, about 20% of our volume comes from other provinces (Government of Yukon, Dynacare in Ontario, Mount Saint Vincent University in Nova Scotia and many more).
