Our history

More than 30 years in business

Our history began in 1986, when a group of professional translators and interpreters, still at the helm of the company today, founded interlanguage. We immediately started to put into practice all the natural vocation for internationalisation of our splendid home area, with its many successful businesses founded on hard work, market-orientation and a love of challenges. Responding to the evolution of globalisation and technology, today our interlanguage team is the ideal partner for businesses in any country worldwide, in any language.

interlanguage is founded in Modena by a group of professional translators and interpreters. The clientele is mainly local, in the key sectors of the area’s economy: the automotive, agricultural equipment, medical device, ceramics and textile industries.

In the 90s interlanguage was ideally placed to take advantage of the birth of the Internet and market globalisation, expanding its customer base to include businesses based in other parts of Europe and in North America.

We are one of the first Italian translation centres to gain dual certification of our Quality System under the ISO 9001:2000 standard and of its Translation and Interpretariato in base alla norma UNI 10574. Questo traguardo segna l’inizio di una nuova fase di rilancio dell’attività.

We celebrate 20 years of business!

We consolidate our international clientele, with 50% of turnover generated abroad, mainly in Switzerland, Germany and the USA.

Logo Uniter 2007

The Quality System is revised and updated in line with the principles of the new edition of the ISO 9001 standard, Vision 2000. A new European standard, EN 15038:2006, is introduced specifically for translation service providers. The Translation Service is therefore split off from the Italian UNI 10574 standard, now specifically applicable to Interpreting Services. We are one of the first Italian centres to achieve triple certification.
