About ULG

Total Language

ULG is one of the world’s largest and most innovative translation, localization and interpreting providers. With offices in 7 countries and 3 continents, we’re the trusted translation partner for hundreds of regulated and non-regulated businesses. As a  full-service Language Solutions Partner, we distinguish ourselves from traditional “Language Service Providers” in four ways:

  1. Where others react to industry trends and regulations, we anticipate them.
  2. Where others offer cookie-cutter services, we create tailored language solutions.
  3. Where others sometimes fail to adequately address your risks and liabilities, we deliver the confidence that your translations are accurate, your sensitive information is secure, and new industry requirements won’t come as a surprise.
  4. Where others offer Translation Management Systems, we offer a far more robust Language Mastery Platform through our proprietary Octave technology suite.

Quality Commitment

“True North” is the highest ideal a company can reach. At ULG, our True North is the persistent practice of daily improvement. Quality-improvement opportunities constantly present themselves, and our people have a relentless drive to unearth and pursue these opportunities at every turn. Powered by quality-management ideals shaped by customer input and our own strategic plan, we’re transforming the language landscape one word at a time.

Our Vision

A world in which language is no longer a barrier.

Our Mission

To transform language barriers into opportunities by providing smart, seamless and secure language solutions that help businesses win in the global marketplace.

The Power of Language Masters

Our language services are powered by over 10,000 linguists. In addition to providing top-notch translation and interpretation, these highly skilled Language Masters stay on the forefront of location trends and cultural accuracy, curate methodologies, and seek out the most efficient and effective ways to blend human and machine expertise. They hold language certifications and advanced degrees, and pass rigorous testing for translation accuracy and regional nuance. ULG Translation Masters are primary speakers of the languages they translate or interpret, and are trained subject matter experts in the industries they serve.

“ULG’s quality commitment pushes us to improve our sales, technology, processes and strategy. We’re constantly striving to raise quality and efficiency standards to meet and exceed client expectations, as well as disrupt and elevate the industry as a whole.”

—Kristen Giovanis, ULG President & Founding Partner

Measuring Improvement

We think of quality as a journey with measurable steps. We judge our progress toward ultimate language excellence by surveying our clients and certifying our processes. We regularly seek input from our clients to get a feel for their satisfaction, and we identify specific areas for improvement.

Our quality systems are audited regularly to ensure they live up to the regulations set by ISO standards. Independent auditors review our documented procedures against ISO standards and award us with certifications that communicate our commitment to perfecting the business of language.

ULG’s Quality Management System is an organized structure of responsibilities, activities and resources that help us meet our clients’ quality requirements.

These processes and procedures have enabled ULG to achieve and maintain 98% accuracy rates for years. ULG’s internal quality procedures allow us to track each step taken by our internal project team, linguists, and localization engineers, from the initial project submission to delivery of the final translation.
