Expertise

Health

You wouldn’t trust your health to just anyone—so why trust your documents to someone that doesn’t specialize in your field? At Permutation, we focus on the health industry and we’ll go the extra mile to use your specific terminology and the style appropriate to your audience. If you’re tired of receiving documents that still need revising, give us a call.

Technology

Technical documents require research and understanding. Who is the document for and what are their actual needs? Is it logical and coherent? For us, it’s a puzzle—we carefully assess each piece before adding it to the whole. Our approach: making sure documents are as simple as they are practical.

Communications

In today’s world, you don’t just want to convey a message, you want to connect and engage with your audience. Through words that inspire, challenge or raise awareness, you can stir emotions, prompt a reaction, or instill a call to action. And when crisis hits, you need powerful, honest words to manage the situation. Our experts will make sure your communications meet your exact needs.

Management

Maude Maher-Bussières, B.Eng.

As a business owner, I understand that documentation is at the heart of every company. My mission: giving it the attention it deserves. My passion: tackling ever more complex challenges. My reward: knowing that the documentation we produce at Permutation will truly be useful to readers.

My motto: “If you don’t have a clear grasp of the text, you cannot translate it well.”

Myrianne Côté, B.Eng.

I love learning and finding answers—that’s why I love my job. My challenge: getting the right message across to our clients’ audience. My method: digging deeper and pushing my research just that much further. My reward: knowing that each time we deliver a project, readers are getting exactly what they were hoping for.

My motto: “No one can achieve perfection, but we can definitely produce something spectacular by three o’clock!”
