UK translation service Lingo24 today announced the addition of five new language professionals to its growing team. With demand for translations worldwide at an all-time high thanks to the onward march of globalisation, EU expansion and the internationalisation of Internet services, the company has taken advantage and is growing fast.
“Lingo24’s grown over the last six months has been no less than astounding,” says founder Christian Arno, “There’s been a marked increase in demand from all our key markets, both geographically and by industry sector. It’s also been pleasing to see our investment in emerging markets start to pay off.”
The company, which has operations throughout the UK and in France, Germany, Romania, China, New Zealand and the USA, generates most of its business via the web and its translation services are used by large corporations such as the Royal Bank of Scotland and Orange. The new positions cover all departments within the company.
“We’ve been bringing through some very able young departmental managers over the last period,” continues Arno, “and they’re now able to start growing their own teams. The outlook is very positive for Lingo24, and we’re still looking for more people to join our team – soon we’ll be more than 50 people!”
Lingo24 is one of the fastest-growing translation companies in the world, with operations in the UK and six other countries worldwide. Founded in 2001, the company is a great case study for:
• e-business (90% of its customers find it through the Internet)
• globalisation (its business is a barometer of globalisation for British business, and the company itself has 'internationalised' in a short space of time)
• EU expansion (the company has its largest operation in Timisoara, Romania)
• green business (the company has a strict environmental policy and limited office use to minimise unnecessary travel)
• home-working (Lingo24 employees work from home more than 95% of the time)
• youthful entrepreneurialism (the company was established by a 22-year-old graduate of Oxford University)
