between all language companies;
The Australasian Association of Language Companies (AALC) Inc. represents the interests of language services providers in Australia and New Zealand. It acts as an independent, collective voice for a highly competitive industry in the face of challenges on commercial, political and economic fronts.
As the peak representative body for language services companies, we bring members together to allow them to positively influence the commercial, technical and regulatory environment of the language services industry.

The AALC has a strong commitment to supporting and advocating for the interests of its members in the area of community language services, interpreting and translating.

Language should not be a barrier for anyone in Australia to access these services.

As a membership organization, they support their member companies and the language sector by creating communities, championing standards, sharing knowledge, and advancing technology.
