Language Select joins ULG as a premier provider of telephonic interpretation services to clients in highly regulated industries.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, USA (December 8, 2016) – United Language Group (ULG) announced today its acquisition of Language Select, a world class provider of over-the-phone (OPI) and in-person interpretation services. The deal allows ULG to provide its existing clients enhanced interpretation service offerings, and introduce a portfolio of translation and localization services to legacy Language Select customers. The merge of these two companies provides a single-vendor option for clients requiring scalable, fully supported document translation and interpretation services in a variety of regulated industries.

Language Select currently offers interpreting services to clients in government, legal, healthcare and private sectors, and is strategically important to ULG’s growth plan.

“We are pleased to be joining United Language Group. This opportunity will benefit our clients as we expand our current language offerings, and further demonstrate our skills and expertise in interpretation within highly regulated industries,” said Yeun Korman, Managing Director at Language Select. “Language Select will continue to provide the same level of quality in our services on a much larger scale, with an expanded global footprint.”
