What We Do

Grow the Businesses

The Association of Language Companies (ALC) believes that if we can support and grow language service companies (LSCs), we will support and grow the language service industry.

ALC provides valuable information to both members and nonmembers with its one-of-a-kind industry survey, and with updates on government issues, industry trends, and standards. From the online Forums to the in-person events, ALC brings together the people that lead these companies so that we can all learn from each other. These connections develop into strong partnerships, and even friendships. ALC works hard to give companies several opportunities to find each other for collaboration, networking, knowledge sharing, and mentoring.

Grow the Industry

As a trade association, it is also our responsibility to represent the industry to the rest of the world. ALC is focused on increasing our visibility and position as the voice of the industry in the United States. The association works closely with language advocacy groups and federal and state lobbying groups. We have committees and members very active in building new industry standards to both guide and protect professional language companies. And with our academic outreach initiative, ALC is building the framework for bringing together LSCs and the academic institutions that are teaching our future linguists and employees.

ALC will look both inside and outside the industry for every opportunity to grow the industry.
