About LanguageLine

Words contain worlds

Today in the United States, one out of every five of our neighbors speaks a language other than English at home – that’s more than 64 million people. Another 10 million are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Many struggle to communicate as they navigate their everyday lives.

A doctor’s visit, traffic stop, parent-teacher conference, or trip to the bank — things we take for granted — are often challenging for these individuals. As most of us would, they may feel frustrated or excluded.

Just as a lack of understanding can be disconcerting, the experience of being understood is empowering. The smiles that come with this empowerment are the moments for which we live.

Simply put: We at LanguageLine Solutions imagine a world in which language and cultural barriers no longer exist.

A new mutual understanding every second

North America is entering a period of unprecedented diversity. Immigration will make up nearly 90 percent of population growth over the next 40 years. By 2045, ethnic minorities will be the majority in the U.S. This means that having a savvy language access partner is essential to managing and growing a modern organization.

LanguageLine created the language access industry in 1982. As the need for language access has grown, so have we. Today we are proud to be the world’s foremost provider of language services.

We handled 40 million interactions last year – that’s more than one new mutual understanding created every second of every day. These interactions help to ensure justice, save lives, welcome newborns, and shape futures. This is what we offer.

360 Degrees of language coverage

Today we expertly blend leading edge technology with emotional intelligence to provide our partners with 360 degrees of language coverage.

We are able to get you connected to our team of 14,000 professional, on-demand interpreters via audio or video in 30 seconds or less.
