Global LT was established in the kitchen of Hortensia Albertini’s Michigan home in 1979, with nothing more than a phone and a filing     cabinet.  A Cuban immigrant, who was recently divorced and without a formal education, was forced to find a way to raise her daughter Lisette, so she decided to use her only skill she felt confident in, her Spanish language. Hortensia began offering language lessons to executives moving to Mexico for work assignments, which proved very positive for her small home based business. From there, Hortensia began offering other languages and cultural training programs. Today, Global LT is a full-service training, translation and expatriate destination solution center headquartered in the USA with entities in China, Hong Kong, Brazil, and the UK.                                                                                 ###
