It is an exciting time for thebigword in the US with the launch of our MHEC contract due to commence this October. thebigword is branching out provision of its language services to be available across the New England area.

Massachusetts Higher Education Consortium (MHEC) is the largest buying organization in New England and membership is available to various educational organizations throughout the region.

As a Massachusetts based member of thebigword team, and University of Massachusetts Amherst Alumni, I was excited to be at the 19th Annual MHEC expo at Mass Mutual Center in Springfield, Massachusetts. The Expo was an opportunity to network with MHEC Board Members and the 250 MHEC’s Member Organization contacts that were in attendance including representative from some of the top colleges & universities in New England including University of Massachusetts Amherst, Hampshire College, Springfield College, Emerson College & Westfield State University.

I had some great conversations with contacts stating that the need for language services has been quickly growing throughout the region, specifically in education and I am looking forward to working with schools and colleges around New England to deliver the translation and interpretation services they need.

If you are a member of MHEC and want to know more about our services please contact me at: mhec@thebigword.com
