About Us

BIG’s group of companies are experts in providing secure translation services in regulated, highly technical, and non-regulated sectors

Our story

BIG Language Solutions is disrupting the highly fragmented language industry by assembling a portfolio of high-performing and complementary language service providers (LSPs). Collectively, we navigate the complex nature of language services for our customers so they can achieve global success. Fueled by an entrepreneurial spirit, we empower our companies and their teams to build and deliver resourceful, impactful and secure customer solutions.

The foundation for BIG Language Solutions and our growth strategy is the strength and resiliency of the $50 billion global language industry, which is experiencing increasing demand for translation, interpretation, localization, and related language services, particularly for highly technical and regulated verticals.

BIG Language was founded in partnership with MSouth Equity Partners, a private equity firm with offices in Atlanta and Nashville and substantial resources, including $2.2 billion in assets under management. MSouth shares BIG leadership’s vision, and together are committed to building an industry-leading organization. By investing heavily in people and technology, BIG adds significant value to each company in the portfolio, enhancing the customer experience and providing marketplace differentiation.
