Woman-owned local business Hanna Interpreting Services named among top 100 industry providers

SAN DIEGO, CALIF., April 3, 2023 – Hanna Interpreting Services LLC, a streamlined platform  that lets users book high-quality language services fast, was recently honored by two global  industry leaders, Slator and Nimdzi. 

The Slator Language Service Provider Index (LSPI) is “a ranking and an index of the world’s  largest translation, localization, interpreting and language technology providers,” according to its  website. Hanna was recognized as:  

  • #68 on the Global Language Service Providers List 
  • #19 provider in the United States 
  • #1 On-site Interpretation Provider in California 

Nimdzi Insights “Top 100” list is comprehensive, considering market research surrounding  translation, interpretation, localization, investment, growth, industry statistics and more to  formulate the top-ranking companies in each sector. Hanna was recognized as: 

  • #91 on the Top 100 Largest Language Service Providers List 
  • #27 provider in the United States 
  • #1 On-site Interpretation Provider in California 

Because Hanna Interpreting Services LLC has adopted a corporate culture that fosters experienced professionals with a can-do attitude, thousands of institutional clients have trusted the Hanna family for more than 12 years. The company has built a reputation in a very  competitive marketplace by offering a “continuity of care using an easy-to-book, high quality  and stress-free approach.”

In a message to the internal team about these prestigious selections, President and COO Tom Elias Hanna said, “These awards represent your tireless efforts to make our community a better,  more inclusive place. If it ever feels like we’re fighting an uphill battle, remember that you  matter and the work that you do matters. Thank you!” 

Tom shared his gratitude to both the Slator.com and Nimdzi Insight selection boards, “Thank you for such a huge honor. My mother and I come from humble beginnings, and we never set out  to be recognized in such a way. Our focus is, and always has been, to make a positive impact on  our community. These selections help affirm that we’re on the right track.” 

Being able to communicate effectively with service providers helps Limited English Proficiency  speakers find a voice so they can advocate for themselves in areas such as healthcare, education,  mental health services, housing, government programs, banking and insurance. 

The need for language service providers is expected to grow at least 20% between 2021 & 2031  due to globalization. According to the Census Bureau, more than 40% of Californians over the  age of 5 don’t speak English in their homes, so the demand for language services in the public  sector is growing rapidly.
