Why Us

Why Us

Over two decades of connecting communities

Vandu Language Services have been providing interpreting and translation services to the local community since 1999. The family-run company is the brainchild of Mebrak Ghebreweldi, an Eritrean freedom fighter during the Eritrean War of Independence, it was during her time there that she learned the importance of communication.

“Effective communication is a powerful tool that can change a nation’s fate and build a better world”

Since the humble beginnings in 1999, VLS has gone on to become one of the largest interpreting and translation agencies in the South of England, with over 1,500 interpreters speaking over 100 different languages – fighting off multinational giants along the way. We’re proud of our commercial achievements, but ultimately, it’s helping local minority communities that really resonates with us. We’ve trained countless migrants and refugees to become community interpreters, some of which have gone on to set up businesses of their own; its this emphasis on the importance of language and connecting communities that has kept Vandu going all these years.

Today, Vandu provides interpreters for thousands of appointments for different clients across the UK, and our caring, attentive and knowledgeable office team are ready to help you every step of the way.
