Our History

Formerly Donnelley Language Solutions, the business was created in 1989 as a specialized niche division of R.R. Donnelley & Sons. Language Solutions initially served the multilingual needs of the company’s financial clients.

Over the years, the business grew organically, operating 24/7 across 4 continents and delivering comprehensive localization services to highly regulated industries including Finance, Institutional, Legal, Corporate Communications and Life Sciences. Donnelley Language Solutions joined forces with SDL in July 2018 and now is committed to delivering outstanding customer experience, as part of a world-class team.

Our Commitment to Quality

To establish our commitment to quality, we achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification in 2012 and now hold ISO 9001:2015 certification. Excellent quality requires the corresponding technology, and we repackaged our web localization offering with the launch of SDL MultiTrans.
