Lionbridge’s Translation Community™. More Languages, More Domains of Expertise, and the Most Diverse Community on the Market.

Any language. Any task. Any subject matter. 

A Translation Community for the Digital Age

Count on Lionbridge’s unparalleled community to support your omnilingual content engine.

Content creators and localization teams face more work than ever as companies rely on an ever-growing amount of content to preserve and strengthen customer relationships. Even with the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Translation (MT), there is a shortage of translators able to localize all the content businesses would like to share with local audiences.

To successfully handle the burgeoning explosion of content, fast-growing companies operating in multiple markets must have access to a diverse and balanced translation community whose members have a wide range of skills across different industries and languages.

For 25 years, Lionbridge has built long-lasting relationships with the most skilled translators and language specialists while also investing in the development of the next generation of translators. 

Translation Community

We know a translator. The perfect one just for your content.

Lionbridge uses Smart Content™ to analyze and route content to the best available translator.

Smart Content evaluates the written material and understands its key properties. This analysis then helps our content platform to identify the right translator for the job and automatically route the work to that language specialist. We empower those language experts with insights from Smart Content. 

Lionbridge’s Diverse Communities Can Meet All Your Language Needs

Our hard-working translators, interpreters, and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) are the backbone of the localization industry. They solve problems and create meaningful content for people no matter where they reside or what language they speak.

Translators & Agencies

Highly skilled translators who work for agencies often possess many years of localization experience. They are typically trained linguists and translators best suited to work on enterprise content and highly specialized regulated content. They commonly work on predefined projects with established delivery dates and higher quality targets.



Interpreters execute the most difficult type of translation as they are required to convert spoken words from one language to another in real time. Our interpreters can assist with both consecutive and simultaneous translation and can support your live events, meetings, or anything in-between.


Members of the gaming community work to ensure top-notch gaming experiences in any language. Lionbridge’s gaming community supports all things related to gaming, including translation, language testing, test management, and Language Quality Assurance (LQA).


Exceptional People for Exceptional Translations

We have scoured the world to secure highly talented translators who can successfully execute your localization projects in any language. Our commitment to high standards means you can feel confident that our Translation Community will meet your project specifications.

What translation tools or Computer-assisted Translation (CAT) tools do Lionbridge translators use?

Our translators use a wide range of translation tools. They most often use Lionbridge proprietary CAT tools and a Translation Memory system called Translation Workspace. Do you have your own tool and need our community to work in your environment? No problem. Talk to our account executives about how we can work within your systems.

How does Machine Translation (MT) impact a translator’s work?

Machine Translation (MT) will help translators carry out their work. The technology will not eliminate the need for human translation. Here’s why: The amount of content that needs to be translated is growing at an exponential rate while there are not enough professional translators to translate all of it. MT is another efficiency tool that helps automate mundane work and allows translators to focus on more value-added work that requires their expertise.
