About Us

Our Story

We’re Intelligere™. We are very pleased to meet you.

Based near Minneapolis, Minnesota, Intelligere™ was founded in 1979 as Garden & Associates. Since we opened our doors, we have strived to offer exceptional interpreting and translation services. As a veteran of the industry, we understand the evolving and changing language needs and the unique cultures within the communities we serve. Turning knowledge to action, we help hundreds of clients bridge the communication gap for a better experience each day.

In 2016, we changed our name to Intelligere™. Intelligere is the Latin word for “understand,” which is the core of our brand promise to you. When we understand, we can provide exceptional service. Acknowledging and supporting the needs of our employees, interpreters, translators, clients and populations, equips us to transform the language solutions industry with high quality, easily accessible services you can count on – anywhere, anytime. And that’s exactly what we are doing.

Building on our strong roots in our local communities, we proudly support community events such as food drives and local non-profits. We are also active members of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID), Minnesota Association of Deaf Citizens (MADC), Association of Language Companies (ALC) and The Interpreting Stakeholders Group (ISG).

Our Mission

Our mission is to be an extension of our clients’ organization by seamlessly fulfilling their language service needs, providing exceptional people experiences.
