Orange County, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2007
Global Language Solutions, Inc. (GLS), a full-service translation and interpreting company with more than 12 years of experience delivering language services and solutions to organizations around the globe, announces its certification as a Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). While GLS has been 100% women owned and operated since its inception in 1994, the nationally recognized WBE certification provides third-party verification of that status. This is a valuable tool in accessing supplier diversity programs within corporations and government procurement programs and serving their translation and language services needs domestically and abroad.
Inna Kassatkina, Global Language Solutions' President and one its two female founders, expressed her thoughts about the company's recent certification: "We are very excited about the opportunities and recognition that this national certification brings to our company. As businesses and government agencies continue to expand into new international markets or look to reach their mulitlingual audiences domestically, the increase in demand for culturally and linguistically accurate translation, localization, and language services continues to grow. As a certified WBE company, we will now have more access to provide our services to companies committed to working with diversity suppliers."
In addition to its WBE-certified member organizations such as GLS, the WBENC also supports a large sustaining membership which includes corporations, businesses, government entities, institutions, and other organizations. Since many corporations and government entities have supplier diversity initiatives requiring that a certain percentage of their procurement dollars be spent with WBEs, the events, networking opportunities, and membership database of the Council provide these organizations with access to a pool of certified WBEs offering a myriad of goods and services to meet their procurement needs.
