Language Line Services plans to hire 2,000 interpreters

Language Line Services, the nation’s leading over-the-phone interpretation company, plans to hire 2,000 new interpreters this year, reports the San Francisco Business Times

The Monterey, Calif.-based company says about 10 percent of the new hires will be in the greater Bay Area. Among them, 1,300 will be Spanish-speaking interpreters, along with 700 others who are fluent in Mandarin Chinese, Russian, Vietnamese, Korean, and Cantonese. Most of the new workers will work from home.

“It’s a great career opportunity,” said Louis F. Provenzano Jr., president and CEO of Language Line Services.
