Interpreter Intelligence is the oldest and most comprehensive interpreter delivery platform on the market. Since its inception in 2011, our platform has grown to be used by the largest language service providers in the world, and we’ve always made sure we are in a position to guarantee business continuity to our partners. Whether the language services industry is disrupted by new technologies, by new regulations, or by mergers and acquisitions, we make sure our customers can continue to thrive and grow. Read on to discover just a few ways we ensure business continuity to our customers.
1. Financial Independence
One crucial way we can guarantee business continuity to our customers is by being 100% financially independent. Till now, Interpreter Intelligence has always made the conscious decision to not accept any outside investments. Not having to answer to investors gives us the flexibility to fully focus on our customers’ needs. We do everything we can to help our customers grow, which, in turn, helps us grow, which again allows us to provide better service to our customers. At Interpreter Intelligence, we consider our customers to be our most important investors.
Bootstrapping the company allowed us to take a very measured approach to what we were doing. It allowed us the necessary time to fully understand our customers’ needs and build it into the product. – Conor Power, CEO & Founder of Interpreter Intelligence

2. In-House Development
Another essential way for us to control the course of our business is by developing software in-house. In 2011, our CEO & Founder Conor Power custom-built Interpreter Intelligence for our first customer (click here to learn more). A software engineer at heart, Conor spent several months gathering the customer’s requirements and finetuning the first draft of the platform, while laying the groundwork for a highly configurable and scalable interpreter platform. By assembling our own team of engineers and by developing everything in-house, we’re able to maintain control over the development timeline, release regular software updates, and maintain a clear vision of our product roadmap down the road.
3. Scalable Software
As we’ve said before, scalability is a fundamental operational strategy for language service providers. To be able to scale your interpretation business, you need an interpreter platform that allows you to do just that. We work hard to remove bottlenecks in the interpreting service delivery process by having the system do the work for you. With Interpreter Intelligence, you can automate job offers, automate communications, consolidate payments and invoices, and enable your contractors to close assignments themselves. Every time we add a new feature to our platform, we consider scalability so you can continue to rely on Interpreter Intelligence as your business grows.
4. Cloud Computing
An absolutely imperative component of any modern platform is that it’s cloud-based. Storing data in the cloud has numerous benefits. All information is synced and shared across the globe in real-time, which means administrators can work together from anywhere in the world. Secondly, cloud computing allows us to monitor and optimize performance. If your business is growing fast, as well as the amount of users and data, then the cloud can easily scale up to meet your needs. Last, and perhaps the biggest advantage of cloud computing, is security. We work with the biggest cloud service provider in the world to make sure your data is stored securely. Whenever you’re faced with an RFP, a government tender, or a healthcare audit, you can rest assured you’ll meet every requirement with Interpreter Intelligence.

5. Industry Intelligence
As the leading interpreting technology provider, we keep our fingers on the pulse of the language services industry. New technologies, new legislation, new regulations,… Whatever new development seems like it will have a lasting effect on the industry, we try to be among the first to know so we can react quickly and accordingly. Interpreter Intelligence is an active member of the most prominent associations in the language industry, and we pride ourselves on having many customers that are among the most important and influential voices within the industry. Whatever the future throws at your business, you can stay ahead of the curve with Interpreter Intelligence.
6. Industry Advocacy
It’s not always about reacting to new trends within the language services industry. Sometimes, it’s about correcting or changing certain trends. One major development in recent memory was the misclassification of freelance translators and interpreters in California. After a year of petitioning, protesting and lobbying, interpreters and translators were finally exempt from the bill. Even though Interpreter Intelligence is a technology company, we made our voice heard in order to support our customers and to preserve language access across the state of California.
