Translators are an indispensable resource in today’s world.
There seems to have been a lot of good news from the world of Lingo24 of late. Hot on the heels of our HSBC Business Thinking Award, we’re also one of two Scottish companies to be selected to join the third Digital Mission to New York this week.
Running from 1st-5th November, the initiative seeks to help companies forge new business whilst also showcasing the best British digital talent.
Organised by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and Chinwag, the Digital Mission to New York provides a platform for the selected companies to network, build their international profile and better understand the US market.
Nineteen companies have been selected to participate from across the UK, and Lingo24 is among them. “We’ve always been very connected to technology”, says Lingo24’s founder Christian Arno. “Whilst we offer desktop publishing and website translation services, we were also the first translation company to market itself entirely online. And we’re now embracing cloud-based technologies to streamline workflows and be more efficient overall.”
Christian continues: “With some of the best technological minds in the localisation industry on board, we’re forging new ground for the translation and localisation industry. I’m very much looking forward to the opportunities presented by the New York Digital Mission.”
All the companies selected represent the top digital talent from across the UK’s vibrant digital industry. The companies range from leading digital agencies, payment providers, mobile technologies and applications, to eye tracking specialists and experts in advertising and media networks. Delegates will also attend ad:tech NYC, the city’s largest marketing conference.
Sam Michel, CEO of organisers Chinwag, said, “This third Digital Mission to New York builds on the momentum of the previous trips with an incredibly strong group of UK firms representing the breadth of the country’s digital industry. This packed week provides a unique opportunity for the companies to rapidly accelerate their expansion into the US market.”
We hope to have lots of exciting news to report from the Digital Mission!
