UK language industry: A future in flux

Research into the UK’s £1 billion language industry, released today by the Association of Translation Companies (ATC), reveals that the sector grew faster than GDP last year.

Prestige Network is delighted to announce record turnover following announcement of 2015-16 year-end results, indicating a 16% growth rate.

 

ATC member Capita Translation & Interpreting (Capita TI) has partnered with multinational technology and consulting corporation, IBM, to offer developers an enhanced translation solution for cloud and mobile applications.

 

With exchange rates so low, SME owner Louise Killeen believes that this is the perfect time for businesses to launch or look to expand their activities in the global market place – despite the Brexit furore.

A survey of the UK’s language service providers shows more than 76% believe their business with EU based enterprises will be compromised if Britain votes to leave the EU.

With the global language industry projected to grow to a remarkable $39 billion by 2018 and the UK ranking within the top three largest language industry markets, Geoffrey Bowden, General Secretary for the Association of Translation Companies (ATC) discusses the opportunities and challenges facing the sector.

The Association of Translation Companies (ATC), the language sector’s leading professional body, launched a search today to uncover interesting industry memorabilia from the past 40 years.

This year, International Women’s Day focuses not only on celebrating the achievements of women but on the need to accelerate gender parity.

As government analysis released today is set to conclude that the UK would be “weaker, less safe and worse off” outside the European Union, a survey of the UK’s language service providers shows more than 76% believe their business with EU based enterprises will be compromised if Britain votes to leave the EU.
