Mission Statement

At Beyond Words, we strive to be part of the solution to problems our communities and the world face today by providing a high-quality, reliable French, English, and Arabic translation and interpreting service centered around the needs of our clients.


Our Company

Beyond Words was founded in 2005 by Ghada Attieh, president and CEO, to provide high-quality translation and interpreting services in English, Arabic, and French to the business and legal communities.

Whether it be a birth certificate or an affidavit, Beyond Words understands the need for absolute accuracy and clarity in the finished product. When it comes to legal and business documents, even the smallest error can be detrimental to the final translation. For this reason, we not only translate, but also include additional steps of extensive editing and proofreading for every single document. Our translators are always native speakers of the target language, so they understand the nuanced phrases and vocabulary necessary for a flawless translation. The translation will be read by at least 3 different people before being delivered. We believe that this attention to detail in every step of the process sets us apart from other translation companies.

We cater to a range of clientele - from international organizations and corporations, to departments of the Federal Government, foreign embassies, and others. We understand that every client has distinct needs and we promise to work meticulously with you and your team to meet pressing deadlines.
