These are busy times for Better Languages. The company continues to grow. We have recently won our largest ever export order. We have also appointed an additional project manager, and had a record month of sales. “Although we work extensively with UK exporters” says Mike Hunter, CEO, “we also supply multilingual translation services to companies in many other countries. Our top export market is the US. Russia is currently in second place, as we are working for a large Russian retailer. China is our third largest direct market. These markets are closely followed by some of the top EU countries. As you might expect we work for countries such as France, Germany and Holland.”

Our top export markets

You may expect our clients from none English speaking countries to need translation into English. This is not necessarily the case however. “With multi-lingual translation, English is often the source language”, says Mike, “for example we have a client in Holland for whom we translate food labelling from English into 5 other European languages.” The great thing about the web, is that clients can access translation services from anywhere in the world, providing they can send and receive files over the internet, often by email, but increasingly by cloud services like DropBox, or over the Better Languages extranet.

Sales turnover giving busy times for Better Languages

We predict sales turnover to grow for 2014-15 by a staggering 35%. There are however already signs that this prediction may be pessimistic, with a surging order book.
