Our Mission

Singer, songwriter Dolly Parton may have said it best, “It’s all in the words.” At Thao & Co., we couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’re committed to high quality translations in which we hand-select every word with precision to deliver your intended message.

We’re a tech-enabled translation agency with a mission to help organizations and individuals communicate and resonate in foreign languages.

Our Vision

We built our translation company to be able to handle a high volume of work with consistent quality and speed. We offer a full array of creative linguistic solutions, using a collaborative process and ever-evolving technology.

Our approach as a translation agency is deliberately unconventional. On our proprietary platform, our clients communicate directly with their linguists to discuss their specifications. And our expert review service for technical translations, research for slogan translation, and SEO work for web translation are just a few of the unique capabilities that set us apart. It is our intent to continue leading the industry as a tech-enabled translation company in Asia and around the world.
