Propio Language Services acquires Telelanguage

Propio Language Services (Propio), a provider of technology-enabled interpreting and translation services, today announced the acquisition of Telelanguage, a Portland-based enterprise language services provider specializing in interpreting from a distance. With this acquisition, Propio becomes one of the five largest remote interpreting companies in the world by volume.

Founded in 1991, Telelanguage has a history of providing high quality remote interpreting services in over 350 languages. Telelanguage has a significant presence in the western and southwestern United States. The company is known for its in-depth language coverage, with thousands of US-based interpreters and top-notch customer service. Combined with Propio’s cutting-edge technology, full range of language services and all-in-one platform, Propio ONE, the company will be able to better meet customers’ ever-changing language needs.

Propio and Telelanguage primarily serve the healthcare market, but also have customers in financial services, education and government. Both companies’ healthcare customers include some of the largest and most progressive healthcare systems in the country.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring Propio’s innovative approach and solutions to thousands of customers in all 50 states. The addition of Telelanguage greatly expands our ability to meet our customers’ communication needs and increases our presence on the West Coast,” said Propio CEO Marco Assis.

This transaction is the sixth acquisition in Propio’s history and continues to advance the company’s mission to leverage innovative technology to bridge the language divide, anytime, anywhere. Propio experienced record growth in 2021 and is on track to exceed last year’s growth in 2022. The company has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies for three years consecutive.
