| The economy of Saskatoon has been associated with potash, oil and agriculture resulting in the moniker POW. Various grains, livestock, oil and gas, potash, uranium, gold, diamond, coal and their spin off industries fuel the economy. The world's largest publicly traded uranium company, Cameco, and the world's largest potash producer, PotashCorp, have corporate headquarters in Saskatoon. Nearly two-thirds of the world's recoverable potash reserves are located in the Saskatoon region. Innovation Place founded in 1980 brings together almost 150 agriculture, information technology, and environmental, life sciences and agricultural biotechnology industries in a science park or technology park setting.
Saskatoon has a number of higher education institutions, including: University of Saskatchewan; Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Sciences and Technology; and, the Saskatoon Business College (SBC).
We translate material touching on both renewable and non-renewable resources. Many of the categories are covered under different headings elsewhere on this website's pages. Examples of natural resource subject matter areas translated include: agriculture – agronomy (the science and technology of using plants for food, fuel, feed, and fiber); air, wind and atmosphere; plants; animals; coal, fossil fuels, rock and mineral resources; forestry; range and pasture; soils; water, ponds, oceans, lakes, groundwater and rivers.
We assist public and private sector natural resource entities and related organizations (regulatory bodies) with documentation (e.g. regulation, public policy, exploration, harvesting, infrastructure, transportation, distribution, energy supply, rate cases, public hearings, deregulation, markets, bid rigging, price fixing, privatization, cooperatives, etc.) that is written in 'technical' language and requires accurate translation.
