Corporate History

CLS Lexi-tech is a wholly owned company of CLS Communication AG of Switzerland. Originally incorporated as Lexi-tech International in 1988, we have grown into North America's most prominent Translation and Linguistic Services Company, providing services in all major industry sectors to clients in Canada and in the United States.

In January 2014, the CLS Communication office in the New York area was rebranded as CLS Lexi-tech to allow us to offer the most complete and comprehensive language solutions to all clients in North America.

When we first opened our doors in Moncton, New Brunswick, the immediate goal was to tackle the largest translation and documentation project ever awarded to a private firm in the world. The project was destined to the Canadian Patrol Frigates Program and included over 200,000 pages of new documentation.

"The professionalism and team spirit with which Lexi-tech tackled the largest translation and project documentation re-engineering contract ever awarded in Canada was exemplary."

In the 1990's, acquisitions of two Ottawa firms (Translex and HSN Linguistic Services), allowed us to become a major player in the North American language industry. From the very beginning, our business philosophy has been built around our clientele. Working with such a wide range of clients has taught us to be flexible, disciplined, open-minded and focused on the most important thing of all - satisfied clients.
