At Language is Everything, we are committed to providing exceptional interpreting and translation services, on time, every time. Whatever the language, leave it to us.
Established in 1992, we've made it our aim to ensure that language is never a barrier in business, healthcare, education, or anything else.
To celebrate 30 years in business, we have published a report that encapsulates our qualities. You can access it here:
In our 2020/21 financial year, we provided over 2.2 million minutes of on-demand telephone interpreting and completed over 124,000 calls.
Our determination to provide the UK’s best fully managed, 24-hour telephone interpreting service, has resulted in us earning an excellent reputation. With millions of minutes provided to date, we are on track to fulfil our vision of being number one in this specialist field.
Our expert linguists also provide the highest quality, professional face-to-face interpreting, video interpreting and written translation services.
Established in 1992, we have made it our mission to ensure that language is never a barrier to communicating with somebody of a different nationality.
Our values are at the heart of our business. They guide the way we work, influencing our behaviour towards customers and each other, and they play a vital role in how we deliver our vision.
If you ever need to remember our values, just think, S.P.E.A.K.
We are warm, friendly and approachable. We believe in teamwork and collaboration, and we actively seek to work with customers, linguists and colleagues who share our values.
Every opportunity is embraced with a positive attitude, building long and respectful working relationships with our customers, linguists and colleagues.
We take pride in providing a fully managed service for the benefit of customers and seek continuous improvement from our experiences.
We are people, not agents - and our interpreting and translation teams have names, not numbers. We will always treat our customers, linguists and colleagues with the utmost respect.
We are committed to providing expert and profitable interpreting and translation services, on time, every time - whatever the language.
From Apprentice to Managing Director
From apprentice to managing director, Lloyd is a fantastic example of what can be done with hard work and dedication. He is highly motivated and committed to self-development and growing the business.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we saw major growth in on-demand, 24/7 telephone interpreting, and Lloyd ensured that we operated at record levels while maintaining the quality of service and keeping all members of staff safe.
Lloyd is a natural leader, always enthusiastically pushing for improvement and exceptional customer service. In 2021, he was named as one of the Top 30 Under 30 – a high profile regional business award.
There have been some great success stories over the years, and we are proud to be an official apprenticeship employer which enables us to provide the opportunity for young people to enjoy a successful start to their careers.
In this section, you can read the first-hand accounts of Language is Everything apprentices past and present.
“I have learnt a lot during my apprenticeship. Not only have I developed further knowledge for my current role, but also a lot about my own personality.
The skills I developed during my apprenticeship are hugely transferable and can be applied to a wide range of working opportunities within Language is Everything.
I believe it has pushed me to excel at what I do and has been the best route for my career.”
“I started working for Language is Everything in November 2020, and I am a level 2 apprentice.
I am proud to work for the company because we help people every day.
It is a rewarding job, and it is great to be a part of a close-knit team.”
“I am currently the customer service coordinator at Language is Everything.
The apprenticeship scheme allowed me to develop my skills and gain valuable experience of the company and my job role.
It allowed me to gain a qualification as well as working full time and furthering my career within the business. If you are thinking about doing an apprenticeship, I would highly recommend it.”
