About our Name:
The name Babel refers to the ancient biblical story of the Tower of Babel, which was said to have been built by humanity as a way of drawing closer to God. Humanity, at that point, was supposed to have been connected by a single language, which allowed them to work together in building this wondrous tower that was to reach to the heavens. Sensing humanity’s arrogance, however, God divided humanity into hundreds of different languages groups. Since humanity could no longer understand each other, as they were now separated by their different tongues, work on the tower was left unfinished.
From as early on as the Middle Ages, the Tower of Babel has been referred to and evoked as the symbolic source of all languages traditions. As a language service provide, we here at Babel believe that the name “Babel” is a fitting title to the mission we have set out for ourselves—which is helping clients overcome the cultural and linguistic differences that stand between them and world.
