For A Good Cause
We are your partners in your good cause project
At Art One we like to translate for a good cause. We have taken part in many translation projects for not-for-profit organizations.
Some of these projects are described below.
English Subtitles for a Film About a Holocaust Survivor
As part of our Translation for a Good Cause mission, we have provided English subtitles for a film telling a story of a Holocaust survivor from Ukraine. The film is deeply moving, and we are happy that our contribution will help the story to be heard by wider audiences in the USA and Canada. The film Dora. A Documentary by SDELANO V NEW YORKE with English subtitles can be watched here.
“Art One provided translation and subtitles/captions for our documentary telling a story of a holocaust survivor. They put a lot of work into the project so that this important story could be available to English-speaking audiences. Highly professional translation was done with precision and attention to all the details and nuances of the original tone and emotion. We are also very pleased with the subtitles and captions. Thank you Art One for the excellent work!“

Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) Canada
Since 2013 Art One has been collaborating with Mothers Matter Centre, formerly Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) Canada by translating the training manuals and educational materials for supporting communities across the country into French Canadian in an effort to equip low-income and socially isolated parents to help their children succeed in school and live brighter lives.
In 2015 Art One Translations was a proud sponsor of “Mothers as a Catalyst of Change: Inspiration from Around the World”, a conference hosted by HIPPY Canada and the BC Association of Family Resource Programs.
We are honored to be part of the initiative focusing on women’s equality, family well-being, and the role of mothers in helping to change the world for the better.
“My non-profit needs French translations all the time. And not just any old French – it’s got to be Québecois French. People know the difference, and Art One is able to meet our specific needs. And at a price that our agency can afford. They provide amazing customer service, with excellent work done very quickly. We trust them with every job we have.“

British Columbia Council for Families
In 2017 we entered into collaboration with the BC Council for Families to produce Arabic and Farsi versions of educational brochures on the subject of child development and family relationships. These educational materials were aimed at helping new Canadians and refugees better assimilate into Canadian society, and better prepare for a balanced life with focus on family well-being and optimal child development.
The brochures were primarily intended for refugees as well as some immigrants, and were written at a simple, easy-to-read level for someone whose education may have been interrupted by years spent in refugee camps. To accomplish this, the text has been translated by native Farsi and Arabic linguists using naturally flowing language. If words in the brochures were used in a context different from the usual Farsi or Arabic use, an explanation of what they mean in this context was added.
Art One delivered fully formatted educational brochures in Arabic and Farsi that were equivalents to their English sources both linguistically and visually.
Government of Canada
In 2015 Art One translated training materials for Ukrainian forces into the Ukrainian language. Working in collaboration with the Canadian Federal Government and Canadian Ministry of Defense, the translations were part of Canada’s support to Ukraine in its efforts to defend itself and resist Russian invasion in its fight for democracy.
UBC Department of Medicine / Vancouver General Hospital
In collaboration with UBC’s Department of Medicine and the Vancouver General Hospital, Art One produced a Punjabi version of the Diabetes Guidebook. The language and tone of the Guidebook were adjusted for the Punjabi community in Lower Mainland. The Art One Punjabi team produced a fully formatted text of 68,000 words and almost 300 pages to give Vancouver’s large Punjabi community better access to health care.
Other projects have included translating educational materials, training manuals, guidebooks, service descriptions, video subtitling, voice recordings for various non-for-profit organizations and societies working with immigrants and refugees, low-income families, and those experiencing financial hardships.

Scotiabank Feast of Fortune
In January of 2019 in advance of Chinese New Year, Art One worked on a video transcription, translation, and subtitling project for Scotiabank’s signature fundraising gala, Feast of Fortune, hosted by St. Paul’s Foundation in support of compassionate, inspired hospital care.
The Scotiabank Feast of Fortune galas have raised over $5.7 million for the purchase of vital medical equipment across all departments at Mount Saint Joseph Hospital.
Funds raised by St. Paul’s Foundation support enhanced patient and resident care, capital projects, equipment needs, research and teaching at St. Paul’s Hospital, Mount Saint Joseph Hospital, Holy Family Hospital, and four residential care sites across Vancouver.
We are extremely proud to have contributed our modest share to this amazing initiative.
