Kevin Coughlan

Senior Translator
Technology and Science

Kevin moved from Ireland to Canada almost 10 years ago after graduating from the National University of Ireland, Galway, with a degree in Mathematics and German. Living and travelling throughout the world eventually led him to teaching in Montreal. While living there, he translated French newspapers every day from front to back to learn about the language and culture of Quebec. As a teacher, he had to interpret often and picked up translation contracts. He then moved to Sherbrooke where he pursued a career as a translator with Stevenson & Writers.

Our Mission

Stevenson’s mission is to create effective, grammatically correct, and easy-to-comprehend translations. We ensure idiomatic texts and nuances are expressed with creativity, awareness, and a human touch, so the final product reflects the tone of your documents.

The True Distinction in Translation

Stevenson takes great pride in the quality of its work, as with its efficient and effective methodology, while continually respecting stringent deadlines.

  • We distinguish ourselves from numerous businesses by retaining a rigorous process of translation, comparative editing, and proofreading performed by three members of our team for each project.
  • We believe 100% that a human touch keeps the true sense of the message you wish to communicate.
  • We support our text correction and glossary creation using computer tools which are powerful but no match for the human touch.

The majority of our team members are certified by the Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec (www.ottiaq.org). This is of great importance to us, so you can be confident in having superior quality documents that have been handled with exceptional thoroughness.

Established in 1998 in the Eastern Townships

Stevenson is based in Sherbrooke, in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. This is a region where English speakers and French speakers maintain a harmonious relationship. The region boasts both English- and French-language schools, colleges, universities, newspapers, cultural centres, theatres, and museums.
