United Language Group (ULG) is one of top Language Solutions Partners (LSPs) in the world, turning language in to a competitive advantage for our clients in their respective industries. We offer clients extensive knowledge and experience gained from our 46-year history in the creation, management and translation of confidential and mission critical, technical, and narrative-forward corporate content.
In February 2016, Merrill Brink and KJI merged to form the operating company United Language Group. Since then, our organization has acquired and integrated several additional suppliers with complementary language capabilities, including Language Select (December 2016), a premier provider of over-the-phone and in-person interpreting services for regulated industries, Lucy Software GmbH (March 2017), a Machine Translation (MT) software development and SAP localization provider, and VIA, Inc. (March 2018), a leading provider of language solutions across a diverse portfolio of global brands. The overall objective was to bring together industry leaders focused on their core competencies to deliver a solution forward solution to help companies achieve their language support objectives. ULG was formed by industry experts, visionaries, and entrepreneurs with experience in global business and customer service that have delivered great success in a relatively short period of time. We draw on decades of experience, while disrupting and innovating in the language services space to provide companies with an option that delivers value beyond the traditional approach to language services.
ULG has a multi-layered corporate vision which simultaneously focuses on creating long term partnerships with our clients while responding to the future trends in the global markets. Our clients benefit greatly from this core partnership vision which allows us to provide scalable and quality language solutions while maintaining the flexibility to adapt to future challenges and global initiatives. This vision has allowed us to have strong growth in the past and continued double-digit growth for the future. Additionally, ULG continuously assesses our industry trends as well as global language and regulatory requirements to ensure we are proactively introducing services and enhancements to our clients to meet their goals and expectations in any global region.
