Our story

Founded in 1982, ISI has been providing industry-specific language access solutions in more than 100 languages for nearly 40 years.  Over that time, we have developed a deep-rooted understanding of client processes, business objectives, annual calendars, and project-based workflows. We combine the skills and experience of our expert linguists with the latest technology to ensure both flexibility and scalability in meeting the demands of professional translation & interpreting services.

ISI Language Solutions serves a wide range of industries and organizations, specializing in healthcare, life sciences, pharmaceutical, and financial services. ISI was one of the first language access providers to address the special linguistic and cultural needs of both the non- and Limited-English Proficient communities (LEPs) in the United States.
