About Glyph
Created in 1996 as a division of the Seattle Language Academy, the company incorporated as Glyph Language Services in September of 2001. Our founders are linguists and senior software developers, so a passion for language and technology runs through our veins.

Glyph has experienced strong, but controlled growth since incorporation, making a name for itself among middle-tier Multi-Language Vendors. Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, among a significant but select portfolio of US-based and international clients specializing in Software, Technology, Legal, Life Sciences, and Consumer Goods & Services.

Glyph is not in the localization business to make a quick buck out of a growing market; rather, we strive for smart and sustained growth, maintaining a commitment to our core values and, most importantly, to our clients’ successful globalization initiatives.

Learn how Visa mastered the “reviewer roundup” and how they now succeed with faster review turnarounds, on-time releases and reviewers who are happy to wear cowboy translation hats every once in a while.
