Dave Summers, Owner and President

I have a passion for the language industry and have over a decade of experience working in it. Ever since starting French classes in middle school, I have been enamored with languages. After spending many years working in project management, I decided to develop Cuyahoga Language Services to fill a gap in the language industry.

I have a BS in Electrical Engineering and a BA in French from NC State University and a Master’s degree in Foreign Languages and Literature (Translation Concentration) from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I am also ABD (incomplete PhD) in Translation Studies at Kent State University.

​I oversee all aspects of Cuyahoga Language Services.

I would love to hear from you.  Please contact me at
