Laurence Blais

Certified Translator

Throughout the years, Laurence added strings to her bow by exploring various fields such as marketing, computer science, and accounting. She dabbled in everything from writer and copy editor to communications consultant, furthering the work of her employers through her skillful and versatile gift for writing. In 2015, she was awarded 3rd prize for her communications plan at the Canadian Practice Firms Trade Fair.

In 2016, Laurence returned in the classrooms of her alma mater, the Université de Sherbrooke, to devote her career to translation. Two years later, she could finally work in the field that she had been dreaming of for so long and quickly found her place at Stevenson, a pleasant and stimulating work environment that fuels her desire to surpass herself every day.

Human precision will always outperform computers.

Computer Translation

  • Computers cannot truly understand the sense of your message
  • They cannot decode subtleties nor catch humorous touches
  • Results are not targeted to your audience
  • Complex ideas and ambiguous expressions are not clarified
  • Errors in original documents are not corrected


  • Translation errors and lengthy, heavy text
  • Failure to engage the interest of readers
  • Embarrassment, loss of credibility, and tarnishing of your image
  • Loss of clients or business opportunities, problems, lawsuits
  • Supplementary costs for adequate reworking of texts

"Transforming ordinary words into extraordinary language."


  • Automatic translation systems establish connections according to statistical rules and calculations
  • A human translator relies on intellectual capacity to choose words


Épilation au laser, épilation à la cire, électrolyse
Hair removal, hair removal, hair removal (automatic translation)
Laser hair removal, waxing, electrolysis (human translation)

Computers acquire data.
Humans accumulate experience.
