This well-established, highly respected professional firm provides exceptional language interpretation and translation services in over 200 languages for clients worldwide, through in-house talent and a team of scores of contract experts. Founded over 12 years ago, the firm has grown to be one of the leading and best-qualified language experts in the world.

The business is headquartered in the United States but operates virtually. It can be headquartered anywhere in the world. (For search engine purposes, it is listed as being in California, the state of its exclusive broker.) Four of the six full-time employees work as contractors outside the United States at very favorable labor rates. There are also two part-time employees working offshore. The buyer would acquire the company’s extensive database of affiliated interpretation and translation contractors in all major world markets and capitals.

The business is unique in its field, with extensive international expertise, resources, and competence, with the ability to facilitate both live and virtual events, and with the capacity to handle both interpretation and translation in myriad languages. Services are provided by the regular employees of the firm and by a carefully vetted cadre of experts on a case-by-case basis. The firm facilitates large and small live and virtual events, multi-lingual conferences, meetings, and negotiation sessions. They provide precise meticulous written translations of the highest caliber for a discerning clientele demanding consistent, reliable excellence. Several clients, including the United States Federal Government and a number of international organizations, are on long-term master service agreements.

Market Dynamics: About three-quarters (3/4) of business revenue is recurring from existing clients. The demand for services is growing rapidly year-over-year. The reputation, expertise, personnel resources, and diverse client base make the barriers to entry quite high.
