New York, NY (PRWEB) January 28, 2015
Ubiqus, a global leader in language, transcription, and event services, is proud to announce today that it has acquired privately-held LanguageWorks, a premier translation firm headquartered in New York City. The strategic combination of Ubiqus and LanguageWorks is expected to further strengthen Ubiqus’ position in several key markets in the United States through expansion of its translation and localization service offerings. “We are very pleased to bring our two companies together,” said Ubiqus’ France-based President, Vincent Nguyen. “This transaction fortifies our presence in North America, positioning us as a more qualified player in the translation industry.” LanguageWorks marks Ubiqus’ fifth acquisition in the United States, doubling the size of both East and West Coast branches, and is the company’s largest acquisition to date.
Over the past 21 years, LanguageWorks has provided translation and other foreign language solutions to more than 4,200 companies in multiple industries. With a team of experienced linguists, cultural experts, and industry insiders, the company excels in providing culturally appropriate translations in over 100 languages. “Our like-minded emphasis on providing high-quality translation services, while remaining flexible to our clients’ unique requirements, made LanguageWorks the perfect acquisition for us,” stated Joanne Bove, Chief Executive Officer of Ubiqus U.S. “With the merging of our companies, Ubiqus is able to provide clients with more advanced, comprehensive language services, which complement our existing suite of services.”
Clients of Ubiqus U.S. will benefit significantly from having LanguageWorks lead its translation division, and LanguageWorks’ clients now have the benefit of working with one trusted partner for a full lineup of language and transcription services, state-of-the-art audience response technology, event consultants, and access to a global network of suppliers. “The relationship between our firms spans 10 years, during which time Ubiqus has been a reliable and trusted resource for projects involving transcription and interpretation,” said President of LanguageWorks, Kevin Rees. “LanguageWorks has made it a strategic goal to increase the breadth of its service offering, as well as the scope of its geographic reach, both of which we achieved with this transaction. The combination of services within a larger global network will enable us to better meet the worldwide business demands of our clients."
