MONTEREY, Calif., May 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LanguageLine Solutions' eLanguage Proficiency Test (eLPT) has been named a Finalist to receive the 2015 American Business Award in the New Product category.

The American Business Awards will be presented at the new product and technology awards event on Friday, September 11, 2015 in San Francisco.
More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and from virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. LanguageLine Solutions was nominated and chosen as a finalist in the New Product Award category in recognition of the eLanguage Proficency Test, a needed solution for organizations seeking to improve communication in today's linguistically diverse marketplace.
