About Us

BIG’s group of companies are experts in providing secure translation services in regulated, highly technical, and non-regulated sectors

Our story

Originally founded as Corporate Translation Services, Inc. in 1991, Language Link grew from a need for high-quality translation and interpretation services in the Pacific Northwest. It has always been our mission to be the most trusted communication link between our customers and their clients, enabling you to overcome linguistic and cultural barriers in order to reach new communities, provide equal access to your services and content, and to establish and maintain meaningful relationships with the stakeholders you support.

Our qualified, professional translators and interpreters are subject matter experts in their fields and native speakers of the languages they service. They, along with the entire team at Language Link, are committed to providing you with only the very best service and support.

We remain committed to helping our customers throughout the United States to be able to provide equal access to their services through translation and interpretation. Language Link offers a robust portfolio of language solutions including translation, localization, interpretation and a wide range of audio/video services. We are HITRUST, HIPAA and ISO 9000:2015 certified.
