They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…so when a translation company from China stole Lingo24’s website hook, line and sinker, perhaps we should’ve patted ourselves on the back for a job well done. After all, there are countless translation companies on the internet, so to choose our site to copy must mean that we’re doing something right.
Well, we only went and did it. We had our fingers crossed that we would walk away with one award at HeraldScotland.com’s Digital Business awards…so to walk away as winners in both categories we were nominated in was a fantastic achievement, especially given the competition we were up against.
Hot on the heels of Christian Arno’s nomination in the Entrepreneur of the Year category at this year’s National Business Awards, comes another double nomination, this time at the Herald Scotland Digital Business Awards.
Lingo24’s Christian Arno has been announced as one of Growing Business’s entrepreneurial ‘Young Guns’ for 2009. Thirty of the UK’s best young entrepreneurs were selected based on a number of factors, but all had to demonstrate a unique and outstanding business that has experienced considerable success.
We are always banging on about the importance of translation for businesses looking to tap into international markets. And we’re not going deviate from that standpoint really…except to say that sometimes a straightforward translation isn’t enough.
