CHANTILLY, VA – Independent market research firm Common Sense Advisory released its annual ranking of the top 100 translation and interpreting providers last week and Mission Essential Personnel, LLC (MEP), with 2011 revenues of $725.5 million, was the top-earning firm for the second consecutive year.
