The location of the new office
A Lancashire-based translation company has gone transatlantic with the launch of an office in New York.
Language Insight, which already has a branch in London, has opened the new office to serve a growing portfolio of clients in the United States.
The company also has exciting plans in the pipeline to expand into Singapore as it approaches its 10th birthday next year.
Managing director Donna Twose, who started the business in 2008, said: “Opening in New York is an incredibly proud moment for us as a company, but it is also a well-deserved one, because it recognises the collective team effort from everyone here at Language Insight and in our country translation teams around the world.”
The company hopes that its New York office will make it more appealing to US-based clients.
Rachel Hurley, the company’s senior marketing executive, said: “Even in today’s digital era of skype and email, the ability to walk into a Language Insight office promotes feelings of reassurance, partnership and confidence in our strength and ability.
“By immersing ourselves directly into the US market we can understand our clients better. Proximity to our clients promotes an unspoken feeling of assurance. Permanent offices give a statement of intent and of long-term establishment.”
Language Insight specialises in translation, transcription and interpreting. Its core in-house languages include French, German, Spanish, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Arabic, Russian and Chinese.
The company, whose headquarters are in The Crossroads Business Park in Kirkham, has an impressive portfolio of clients, and is the official language partner for the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England and Wales.
Its role during the tournament ranged from translating and proof-reading speeches for the opening ceremony to providing interpreters for disciplinary hearings for non-English speaking players, including Japanese, Romanian and Georgian.
MD Donna added: “Our company is experiencing rapid growth because of the principles we adhere to – honesty, fairness, transparency and doing everything in our power to ensure our clients receive a service that contributes to their own success.
“Our exciting new office in New York will allow Language Insight to culturally immerse itself in the US markets and develop its own identity within the States.
“We believe that utilising our own in-house team of highly qualified MA linguists, through to our assigned and dedicated managers for every client, we truly stand out from other language service providers.”
