ALC - Association of Language Companies


The ALC is a unique national trade organization representing businesses that provide translation, interpretation, localization, and language training services. A dynamic group of entrepreneurs founded the association in 2002 for the purpose of delivering timely information that generates more sales, increases profits for its members, and raises awareness of the industry.

The ALC’s mission is to promote the professional stature and economic position of its US-based member language companies through industry advocacy and professional development of language company owners and senior management.
