Allo! Ciao! Hola!

While many of us many know these words all mean hello, we may need a little assistance in carrying on a fluid conversation in a language other than our native tongue. Translating reading materials is also important for organizations that cater to broad demographics and/or geographies.

Here’s a short list of some of the companies that offer translation services to help businesses engage with customers.

Certified Languages International

CLI is among the largest full-service language providers in the world, servicing North America and abroad. CLI’s professional U.S.-based interpreters and translators are skilled in industry-specific terminology and are available at all hours of the day and night. CLI specializes in over-the-phone interpreting. From the moment a customer places a request with a CLI phone operator, the company immediately connects them with a professional interpreter, with calls being answered in an average of three seconds. The company also offers video remote interpreting, providing on-demand communication anywhere, on any device. Its VRI services decrease the costs and advanced scheduling required for on-site interpreters, providing high security and quick connection times.  It also offers document translation services in virtually any written language.
