Ethnolink is Australia's leading professional translation company. Founded in 2011 by Costa Vasili, Ethnolink has grown into one of Australia's top translation services. We are proud to have developed a stunning portfolio of over 4,700 satisfied clients in businesses, government departments and not-for-profits.
The Ethnolink story began with the dream of a young boy in the suburbs of Melbourne. As a child, our founder, Costa Vasili listened to bedtime tales of his dad's journey from Cyprus to Australia.
He was only thirteen, looking for a better life. But when he arrived, he struggled immensely to understand a new culture.
Hearing this, Costa realised that his dad's biggest challenge was learning a new language — English. For his dad, participating in everyday Australian life had been harder than he had expected, simply because of language.
Inspired by his dad's stories of pain, struggle and hope, Costa decided to start a company that would make information available to Australians in their preferred language at the age of twenty.
And so Ethnolink was born — a translation company on a mission to connect the world through language. Today, Ethnolink works with thousands of organisations across Australia, facilitating communication in over 150 languages.

Haven't heard of NAATI?
The National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) is the national standards and accreditation body for translators and interpreters in Australia.
Our translators are more than just linguists — many have background knowledge and experience working in other industries, such as education, health, finance and law.
We take the time to match the right translator, with specialised knowledge in your domain, to your project, so you'll receive translations that exceed your expectations — everytime.
We are proud members of the Australasian Association of Language Companies (AALC), an organisation which 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'.
What does this affiliation mean? It means that Ethnolink has made a commitment to uphold professional standards and to the development of language industry excellence.
