Headquartered in Overland Park, Propio has acquired Vocalink Global out of Ohio. Vocalink specializes in document translation and in-person interpretation. Although terms of the deal were not disclosed, this is Propio’s third acquisition and is the largest language services company it has acquired so far.

Propio Language Services has purchased Dayton-based Vocalink Global, a company that specializes in document translation and localization, as well as in-person interpretation.

Although terms of the deal were not disclosed, this is the third and largest language services company Propio has acquired.

Vocalink, which has office locations in Dayton and Cincinnati in Ohio and in Louisville, Kentucky, will be branded as Vocalink Global, a Propio Language Services company.

Propio and Vocalink will center their focus on their current clients, partners, employees, and markets during this transition. Their mutual goal is to close the language gap and connect people anywhere and anytime through innovative technology and consultative solutions. 

“Through this acquisition, I believe that we are now able to truly deliver our ambition of transforming communication, help our clients to achieve significant cost savings while improving patient and consumer experiences,” Propio Partner and CEO, Marco Assis, said in a Propio news release.

“We are committed to extending the highest level of service and value that Propio’s clients, interpreters, and partners have come to expect to Vocalink’s relationships, and we look forward to taking the next step in our rapid growth trajectory toward becoming the leader in remote language solutions and making an impact to the communities we serve,” Assis said.
