About Us

Ethnolink is Australia's leading professional translation company. Founded in 2011 by Costa Vasili, Ethnolink has disrupted the translation industry in Australia. By working with Australia's leading professional translators and marrying this with the best technology in the world, Ethnolink has developed into the leading agency in Australia.

Where it all started...

The Ethnolink story began as the dream of a young boy in his bedroom in the suburbs of Melbourne. As a child, at bedtime, our founder, Costa Vasili, heard the tales of his dad's journey to Australia from Cyprus at the age of thirteen, in search of a better life.

Hearing of his father's immense struggle to understand a new culture, and to fit in, Costa realised his dad's biggest challenge was learning a new language — English. Costa was saddened that 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, at the age of twenty, Costa decided to start a company that would make information available to Australians in their preferred language.

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.
