This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Zab Translation Solutions specializes in educational, IP/legal, IT, and manufacturing translations. Managing Director, Brian Chandler, is here to share the important work they’ve been doing in Utah.


We have seen a steep increase translations relevant to COVID-19, which are critical to get out to many different groups – from non-English speaking company employees to customers, parents and students.  Last year we translated over 110 languages.

It has been crucial to get accurate information to parents and students – not only to assist in furthering education, but also to avoid serious problems, misinformation, and fear among non-English speaking communities. Professional human translations are required, as Google Translate can result in mistranslations such as the Virginia Department of Health experienced when Google translated “the vaccine is not required” to “the vaccine is not necessary”.

Zab translates for hundreds of school districts, schools, and educational companies and organizations around the world, including locally for the Canyons School District. Over the past several years, Utah has been very welcoming to refugees which has caused a large influx in non-English speakers, and Zab has been able to assist Canyons School District and other Utah schools with translations into nearly two dozen languages, including Dari, Swahili, and Kinyarwanda.


Zab can help you make the most of opportunities to connect to potential customers across the world. Learn more at I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
