Our Expertise

The language services industry is booming. Multilingual communication in all its facets is in demand like never before. Yet our field is also young and still forming. There are many areas where those in the field can use the help of an expert consultant:

  • Do you need help navigating the technology side of interpreting to understand what’s feasible, doable, and desirable in today’s rapidly shifting business environment?
  • Are you looking to solve the language access needs for your limited English-speaking patients?
  • Do you need a curriculum designed or reviewed for interpreting and translation?
  • Are you looking for a train-the-trainer program to meet your ongoing need to train in-house interpreters?
  • Are you working on projects related to military, conflict zone, or indigenous interpreting?
