Our History

Beginning in 2011 with the opening of our translation office in downtown Dubai, our translation company has always focused on quality and innovation. From a single founder to a global network of over 2,000 professionals, we have always offered outstanding translation services and interpretation services to a wide range of national and international clients.

The man behind the company is Italian simultaneous interpreter and certified translator Matteo Ippoliti. He comes from a family of linguists, indeed his father was a French language teacher, his mother was an English language teacher, and his sister is a translator specialized in the Chinese language and culture. In 2005 he graduated in Translation and Conference Interpreting at the University of Bologna, which is the oldest university in the world and comprises one of the best translation and interpretation faculties in the country. During this 4-year degree course, he acquired the techniques and knowledge necessary to work as a professional translator and interpreter at the highest levels. After graduation he worked as a freelance translator and interpreter for a large number of clients across the world, moving his base from Italy to the UK, then Spain, France, North America, Canada, and Australia.

In 2011, he moved to Dubai, a city full of business opportunities, where his passion for foreign languages and cultures inspired him to create Langpros. Langpros is a translation company with 15 Dubai-based team members – mostly vendors and project managers –and a network of over 2,000 highly qualified translators and interpreters in all corners of the world, able to successfully handle translation and interpretation projects in over 100 languages.

Thanks to Matteo’s enthusiasm and professionalism, we have quickly become one of the leading language service providers in the UAE, providing high-quality language services to national and international clients. We have translated tens of millions of words and completed over 200 large-scale interpreting projects for important clients such as UNICEF, Porsche, Chanel, and many others. As for translation, we have gained certifications by the UAE Ministry of Justice and the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs to provide legal translations in English, Italian, French, Arabic and Spanish for any official document.
