About Us

Gibboney Technical Translators has been providing top-quality translation services to the international development and international business communities since 1988 from our current base of operations in the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. area. Although we are Spanish-language specialists, we currently offer language expertise in more than 25 additional languages, including French, Portuguese, Italian, German, Arabic, Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

We are set up to handle everything from single-language pamphlets to large multi-language corporate surveys, from simple correspondence to complex legal documents, training manuals and websites, providing service that is unmatched in terms of accuracy, cost and turnaround time.

All translation projects are supervised personally by Owner/Manager Jan D. Gibboney. Translations are performed by Mr. Gibboney and by a host of affiliated language specialists, all highly experienced and qualified in their fields.
