The Association of Translation Companies has secured a UK Government grant worth £27,500 to assist language service companies prepare for the UK’s eventual exit from the European Union on 31 October 2019.
The ATC’s Chief Executive Officer Raisa McNab says, “We are absolutely delighted to be awarded this prestigious funding to help UK language service companies prepare for a no-deal Brexit. There is very little existing guidance for the specific circumstances language service companies trade in, and this grant allows us to identify the issues facing us in the event of no-deal, find the right answers, and share them with the entire UK language services industry.”
In September and October 2019, the ATC will organise a series of information and training webinars tailored for UK language service companies, addressing the critical questions around an eventual no-deal Brexit. The series will culminate in the publication of an ATC Brexit Guide for Language Service Companies in October.

The ATC is partnering with leading language industry consultant and export advisor Doug Lawrence to deliver this world-class training. Specialist immigration guidance will be provided by Louis MacWilliam from Blacks Solicitors.
The funding has been granted by the Business Readiness Fund whose objective is to fund business representative bodies and organisations to engage and provide advice to UK-based businesses to understand the impact on their business and trading arrangements arising from the UK’s eventual exit from the EU without a negotiated agreement. The fund is administered by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
