About the Association of Language Companies:
The Association of Language Companies (ALC) is a trade association representing language service companies (LSCs) in the United States and internationally. As a trade association, it is also our responsibility to represent the industry to the rest of the world. ALC is focused on increasing visibility and positions itself as the voice of the industry in the United States. The association works closely with language advocacy groups and federal and state lobbying groups. ALC has committees and members active in building new industry standards to both guide and protect professional language companies. With ALC’s academic outreach initiative, ALC BridgeTM, the Association created the framework for bringing together LSCs and the academic institutions that are teaching future language professionals and employees. 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. For more information, visit www.alcus.org.
