Who We Are

From modest beginnings inside a rented garage in 2000, Language World has since grown into one of California’s largest language access providers. Along the way, we have interpreted for the Presidents of Mexico and Chile, expecting mothers, academic dignitaries and official international government delegations. As we grew, so too did our service offerings to include remote interpreting, translations and bilingual staffing.

In 2009, we transitioned away from contracted interpreters to employees — firmly establishing our commitment to quality and in furtherance of professionalizing the language industry. In 2017, we opened our video remote call center and more recently, relocated to a gleaming new facility in Rancho Cordova, California. With our team’s dedication and motivation to inspire change, Language World continues to flourish and advance in providing equal language access for our communities.
