B Lingo Communications Sdn Bhd

Translation and Interpretation in Malaysia


Translation is the communication of the meaning of a text in a given language by means of an equivalent text in the intended language. It appeared around 2000 B.C. that is 4000 ago. However, it is not the oldest craft in communications


Interpreting undoubtedly antedates writing and deals exclusively with oral communication by rendering a message from one language into another naturally and fluently, adopting the delivery, tone and convictions of the speaker and speaking in the first person. The only exception to this is Sign Language Interpreting.

Translation Services

We provide our clients fast and competent translation services in a wide range of domains, be it very technical translations, such as operating manual for the aeronautical or the O&G industry, or translation of bespoke software applications and marketing tools to novels or essays as well as translation of standard documents, like driving licenses, marriage certificates or academic transcripts. We can also provide certified translation accepted by the Immigration Department, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Embassies in Malaysia and Malaysian embassies overseas.

Translation services are available in an assorted range of Eastern and European languages (more than 60 languages), not only vernacular languages of Malaysia, such as Malay, Cantonese, Mandarin, Tamil, Kadazan & Iban but also English, Arabic, Thai, Japanese, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Korean, Russian, Farsi, Burmese, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Laotian and countless other languages.

Translation (first translator)=>Proofreading (second translator)=> QC (back to first translator)=>release to client

Our team of translators, based in Malaysia or elsewhere in the world, are native speakers and all of them are highly qualified professionals specialized in different fields, from Aeronautics to Zen.

Interpretation Services

The provision of simultaneous interpretation services in Malaysia and the S.E. Asian region is our core activity. Our interpreters in Malaysia, Singapore and beyond are entrusted with lowering the language barrier and enabling people who have no language in common to communicate efficiently. Consecutive interpretation services are also part of our daily work when simultaneous interpretation is not possible or needed.

Simultaneous and consecutive interpretation services are available in a wide range of languages such as Spanish, French, Korean, Chinese, Arabic, Thai, Mandarin, Japanese and many more. All our conference interpreters are professionals with at least 5 years experience in simultaneous interpretation, many of whom had achieved international repute.

Simultaneous Interpretation Equipment is also available at, providing wireless headsets and interpreters’ booths for your interpreting needs during conferences and seminars. The combined result enables a seamless, real-time version of the proceedings, making possible to hold the meeting at a multilingual level.


About Us

Malaysia’s geographical location and social fabric make it the natural space for translators and interpreters keen to work in a multilingual environment where dozens of vernacular and foreign languages are used and translated on daily basis, the total amount of language spoken in the country being close to 140. Motivated by the desire to engage in the trade of translation that has been carried out in the region since ancient times, Alberto BALANZA set up B-Lingo Communications in March 2001, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
B-Lingo Communications have been providing high-quality services of interpretation and translation in Malaysia, Singapore and throughout South East Asia since then. More than 300 events and congresses and over 26 million words translated avail us.

We want to bring down language barriers

South East Asia is home to more than 600 million people and several multi-ethnic, multilingual societies. It is one of the most dynamic areas of the planet and a crossroads of trade lanes and civilizations perched between the Pacific and Indian Oceans where the use of exchange, dialogue and negotiation has been the basis for development, cooperation and conflict resolution since time immemorial.

B-Lingo’s main goal is to provide its customers the best quality service fast and efficiently. We not only offer translation and interpretation services, but also other services such as transcription and voice-overs.

Our clients include individual and corporate clients as well as the government sector. You can read more about our clients on our testimonials page.

« B-Lingo provided the Language Services and Events teams at Shell with an all-round service that was professional, efficient and effective. It was also great to have a focal point on site as it helped us to manage the interpreting side of the proceedings both before and during the event – this was especially important given that a total of 8 languages were involved, including English, Thai and Mandarin »
