A TRANSLATION firm is celebrating after being named the UK’s Fastest-Growing Language Services Provider by the Association of Translation Companies.
Intonation, in East Street, Fareham, has provided professional translation and interpreting services for over 30 years. Its sister company City Legal Translations, a division of Intonation, specialises in legal and financial translations and has worked for 19 of the UK’s top 20 law firms, and alongside most major banks and financial houses.
According to a recent report by the ATC, the language industry in the UK is now worth in excess of £1bn a year.
Geoffrey Bowden, general secretary of the ATC, said: ‘Intonation is a perfect example of a business that has gone from strength to strength by focusing on their clients’ needs, expanding their services and remaining agile in the marketplace.’
Intonation’s commercial director Dan Peachey said the company’s growth was attributed to a number of key factors such as a high client retention rate, the launching of a multi-language marketing service focusing on Search Engine Optimisation and two acquisitions, which has enabled them to expand the services they offer.
Intonation employs 27 staff and works with over 2,000 translation professionals to undertake a wide variety of language projects in over 600 languages.
Dan said: ‘Our clients’ needs are diverse and recent projects include working for internationally-acclaimed and award-winning drinks company Fever Tree, translating lines of a script for the recent Absolutely Fabulous film through to translating exhibition literature for Winkworth Machinery, the UK’s leading industrial mixer manufacturer.’
The Association of Translation Companies is an industry association serving United Kingdom translation/interpreting companies.
It was founded in 1976 and has around 180 member companies.
