The Omnia Group and the AutoHarvest Foundation announced that the public facing website is now translated into 5 languages: Chinese, English, French, German and Italian. The two organizations expanded access to millions in their native language to the AutoHarvest e-collaboration marketplace for advanced manufacturing intellectual property. Within the AutoHarvest ecosystem, innovators and commercializers have a direct line of sight to intellectual property opportunities to buy/sell/license and collaborate from a multitude of large and small organizations across the full spectrum of advanced manufacturing.

Created in Detroit, the heart of the NAFTA automotive cluster, AutoHarvest offers access throughout the traditional and nontraditional automotive supply chain and beyond. “The pro bono contribution by Omnia Group will help grow our international participation in many new regions of the world,” said AutoHarvest president and CEO, Jayson D. Pankin.

Omnia Group opened its first-ever office in the United States in 2012, and the collaboration is a part of Omnia’s outreach into the automotive community.

"By opening an office here in Detroit, the hub of the automobile world, we will not only consolidate our presence in North America, but we will also strengthen our position globally in the language services industry. IteroText has over four decades of expertise in the automotive and related industries, Omnia, consistently ranked amongst the top one hundred language service providers worldwide, enjoys year-on-year growth, albeit largely in Europe,” stated Cesare Zanni, CEO of Omnia. “We intend to support our clients with excellent service based on best-of-breed technologies.”

Through the collaboration, more global entrepreneurs and corporate executives will have direct access to a centralized hub for innovation in their native language, further encouraging collaboration across the advanced manufacturing spectrum. This multilingual platform brings more innovators and commercializers one-click-closer™ to building new relationships that generate intellectual property transactions and accelerate the adoption of innovation.
