San Francisco, CA and Paris, France (PRWEB) October 21, 2010
Elanex, Inc., a leader in language translation services and technologies, will be presenting the topic, “Bridging Language Barriers to Help Close Global Deals” at the Fall 2010 IMAP International Mergers and Acquisitions Symposium. Elanex executives Joe Dougherty, general manager of Italy, and Stefan Joris, general manager of Belgium will give the presentation and meet with delegates to advise on how to best use professional translation services to help speed global transactions.
The symposium will be attended by senior-level delegates from private equity groups, corporate development officers, global M&A attorneys and M&A transaction advisers from more than 30 countries. This is the third international M&A symposium sponsored by IMAP.
According to Donald Plumley, CEO of Elanex, “The pace of global M&A continues to accelerate. Increasing interest in Asian and Eastern European transactions exposes significant language barriers that often stand in the way of promptly closing a deal. Professional translation of offering materials can open a much broader potential audience unfamiliar with Western languages and rapid translation of diligence documents keeps the global deal on track.”
Elanex has unmatched experience supporting global M&A with professional translation services. In 2009 they were instrumental supporting a multi-billion dollar global deal to promptly pass regulatory review by delivering millions of words of translation in record time. Through the use of intelligent automation supporting a global production team, they are able to manage the most sensitive projects with the speed and quality necessary for international transactions.
