Humans are social creatures; nothing is more proof of this than the variety of languages we have invented purely to communicate with each other.

See below some amazing facts from around the world:

In Albanian, there are 27 words for “mustache,” including “dirs ur” meaning teenager’s newly developed mustache.

Since Russian is the international language of space, all astronauts must learn the language at an intermidiate-high level before heading for the International Space Station. Even the simulator runs only in Russian!

About us

LEGAL INTERPRETERS LLC is an interpreting agency founded by an actual interpreter with a broad and extensive interpreting experience. Agata Baczyk has been working as an independent interpreter for several years and decided to start her own interpreting agency in order to address the industry's need for professional and experienced interpreters. Most interpreting agencies are not able to screen or assess their interpreters effectively because they don't have the needed tools and knowledge of what that job entails. As a company led by a professional interpreter we are able to ensure that the linguists we contract with are knowledgeable and experienced.
