Birmingham is the largest city in the state of Alabama, with a metro population of about 1,136,650 people. It was once dubbed the “Magic City” due to the fast population growth at the height of the city’s manufacturing history. Now however, the city’s main economic success comes from medical research, banking and tourism. Birmingham boasts world-class attractions from light-hearted trips to the Birmingham Zoo and Oak Mountain State Park to historic places of import like the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Whether you’re a tourist or current resident, there’s something for everyone.

Some of the largest employers in Birmingham are:

  • University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • Government
  • Alabama Power Company
  • Compass Bank
  • City of Birmingham
  • Children’s Hospital
  • Regions Bank
  • AT&T Telecommunications, Inc.
  • Birmingham Board of Education
  • American Cast Iron Pipe Co. Inc.

The cultural landscape of the city has also changed greatly over the past 30 years. In 1980, Birmingham had a little over 8,000 foreign-born residents, mostly from Europe, Asia, North and Central America. Very few of those residents were from Mexico. Since then, there are now close to 26,000 foreign-born residents in the city with more than 25,000 Hispanic residents. Birmingham’s Asian population has also seen a significant increase, growing their presence by more than 10,000 people. That’s 26,000 more customers, employees, volunteers and students contributing to the local economy.

What does this mean for Birmingham-based businesses? A lot actually. Some of these foreign-born residents may speak English, but there’s a good chance they don’t. It’s better to be proactive and establish relationships and connections with this new demographic than scrambling to find translation resources when the customer is at your door. Therefore, investing in accurate, reliable translation services is a must for forward-moving companies. It would be foolish to ignore an entire market in the Birmingham backyard when ASTA-USA Translation Services, Inc. is nearby to partner with you and bridge the gap.

Our accredited career translators can translate your written business documents, marketing materials, legal contracts and anything else your company might need to connect with your non-English speaking audience. We are able to translate your documents from English to Spanish, English to Mandarin and much more. By translating your products and business materials into the native languages of your target audience, you’ll create brand loyalty among a new demographic. The same is applicable for finance and banking. Having websites, pamphlets and more translated into all of the different languages spoken by foreign-born residents will attract more customers and grow a bank’s customer base.

Big businesses aren’t the only ones to benefit from reliable translation services. With international students attending the University of Alabama at Birmingham, school information translated into their native language might help increase international enrollment. Although all of the students most likely speak English fluently, their parents and families back home may not. By translating campus information packets, the university website and other helpful information, families will feel more comfortable letting their undergrads go so far from home for college.
