It seems like everyone’s talking about UK exports this month.
British workers’ poor foreign language skills are holding them back from jobs in European Union institutions, an official said this week.
The Fast Track table lists the top 100 UK companies with the fastest growing sales internationally, and we’re very pleased to have placed at number 81. (Which, in fact, makes us the fastest growing translation agency in the UK!)
With the Scottish election coming up on 5 May, export has become a major issue. The SNP are pushing for a 50% rise in local exports over the next six years backed by £2.5m funding, while the Liberal Democrats want to double the number of Scottish companies trading overseas by 2020.
Here at Lingo24 we recently created ‘L24 Thanks’, a quarterly competition in which we draw one each of our clients, translators and team members at random to win a cash prize of £124.
Getting accurate, quality translations can be a complicated process, which is why at Lingo24 we try to make that process smoother by refining the processes we use to handle translation projects from creation to delivery.
We have a lot to be thankful for at Lingo24 – our great clients, our fantastic team, and our brilliant translators, to mention just a few things we’re grateful for.
Asia’s position as the current hot spot for economic globalisation was reinforced recently when Singapore reached third place on the Globalisation Index, placing behind Hong Kong and Ireland.
The very best industry plaudits are those which are voted for by the people you work with. And with that in mind, we’re very pleased to announce that Lingo24 has been awarded top scores by the translators at two major online linguist communities, ProZ and Translators Cafe.
Everyone at Lingo24 is in their role because it’s what they do best. From marketers and management, to translators and technologists, every ‘Lingo-ist’ (a Lingo24 employee…) has found their area of expertise and perform impeccably.
