Specialized Language and Culture Services

Since our company's founding, we have been implementing language programs for the U.S. Government. Our experience includes English and foreign language instruction, translation and interpretation services, and cultural
immersion programs. The Culmen professionals who support our educational programs come from a variety of ethnic and technical backgrounds, are adept with the subject matter of security studies and excel at mitigating
cultural and language barriers to prevent misunderstanding and miscommunication. In addition to our specific language support contracts, a large portion of the Culmen staff is bi-lingual or multi-lingual. Culmen maintains a network of professional interpreters both in the U.S. and in over 80 countries abroad. To date, Culmen has provided interpretation and/or translation support to over 1,500 events around the globe.
