MONTEREY, Calif. – LanguageLine Solutions, the global leader in language access, proudly announced today that it has provided over a billion minutes of interpretation in the past 12 months, marking a significant milestone in its commitment to bridging language barriers and fostering inclusivity worldwide.


This impressive achievement was reached through more than 76 million interpretation calls, demonstrating the immense scale and impact of LanguageLine's services. These calls have played a crucial role in connecting communities, enhancing understanding, and promoting mutual respect across diverse populations.


Over the 12 month period, LanguageLine facilitated more than two new connections every second, reaffirming its role as a critical enabler of global communication.


Scott W. Klein, President and CEO of LanguageLine, expressed his gratitude, stating, "We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our clients and partners, as well as every member of the LanguageLine family.
