  • About the company

    Operating from a central London location, Language Connect is a professional language services company providing a range of translation, interpreting, voiceover and localisation services to clients worldwide. Language Connect was founded in 2003 by Iwona Beak and Ben Taylor, who share a passion for different languages and cultures. Language Connect’s fundamental aim is to help a range of organisations communicate more effectively without foreign language barriers. Today, Language Connect works exclusively with native speakers of over 150 languages to deliver accurate, rapid and seamless services for a range of industry sectors. Language Connect recognises that languages evolve over time so it’s imperative for us that our linguists always translate into the language that they most habitually use wherever in the world they are based. We employ specialists in practically every field of business to ensure even the most technical terminology is used accurately. Language Connect’s commitment to excellence is certified through our accreditation with the ‘Association of Translation Companies’, the ‘Globalization and Localization Association’ and most importantly by the Quality Management standard ISO 9001:2000. This award recognises our commitment to sustaining consistently high quality assurance and customer service standards. To maintain our rigorous quality system we use proprietary translator and project management technologies. These allow our Project Managers to verify any given linguist’s suitability in terms of skills, qualifications and experience for a project. They are also used to monitor, record and analyse all linguists’ performance. Language Connect continues its fast expansion with plans to expand outside of the UK. We are proud to say that a significant proportion of new business comes direct from client referrals. In a recent independent survey, our clients judged the overall standards of our service as ‘Excellent’.
