Additionally, language service providers will now be able to offer these wide-ranging interpretation options through Boostlingo’s on-demand interpretation delivery, management and scheduling products.
“Interpreter Intelligence and VoiceBoxer are dedicated to providing better language access and improved global communication, just as we are at Boostlingo,” said Bryan Forrester, CEO of Boostlingo. “The acquisitions of Interpreter Intelligence and VoiceBoxer will allow us to meet the growing demand for interpretation solutions in whatever format the customer chooses.”

They have worked hard to transform the interpretation industry, just like us,” said Conor Power, Founder and CEO of Interpreter Intelligence. “This transaction is great news for our employees and our customers.
