To us, language really is everything

Smiling CEO and Managing Director

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.



In our 2020/21 financial year, we provided over 2.2 million minutes of on-demand telephone interpreting and completed over 124,000 calls.

Aiming High

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

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.

From Apprentice to Managing Director

Lloyd Tidder

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.
