CBI Growing Business Awards success for Web-Translations

Web-Translations revolutionary email translation system has been shortlisted in the Technology in Business category at the Real Business and the CBI Growing Business Awards 2006. The awards are described by the Chancellor Gordon Brown as “the business equivalent of The Oscars” and see companies of all shapes, sizes and turnover nominated.

The awards are designed to highlight the increasingly diverse and confident nature of businesses in the Wakefield District. Just this year, OMIS recognised Wakefield as Britain’s ‘Best Small City for Business’ and the shortlist for each award shows just that!  Web-Translations is up against real competition!

Web-Translations was established in 2003, following the dot.com boom. Web-Translations’ Managing Director Daniel Rajkumar recognised the need for website localisation as business in the 20th Century became increasingly globalised. For businesses to compete with the lower cost products and services flooding in from growing markets, seeking new markets for products is the only solution. A localised website offers companies the opportunity to sell to new markets and Web-Translations’ email translation system enables businesses to communicate with customers in their own language.

The e-Business Award is the second category Web-Translations have been shortlisted for. Without the internet our company simply could not exist! Thanks to the expert knowledge of Web-Translations staff who make sure e-business is a reality, Web-Translations have gone from strength to strength in the past twelve months, breaking sales targets and witnessing growth month after month.

Early November will see a business roundtable held at Claridges, London, with finalists in the Technology category and key personnel from Dell. The winner of the ‘Technology in Business’ award will be announced at the Growing Business Awards ceremony which will be held at the Hilton in London on the 30th November.

Catherine McTeigue, Project Manager said, “This recognition is fantastic for a young company like Web-Translations. The national recognition we have already achieved at the awards is a brilliant motivator for everyone at Web-Translations and underlines that companies of all sizes are building successful enterprises within the British business community”.

Web-Translations Limited offers website localisation and document translation in over 140 languages for Asian, African, European, Middle Eastern and American languages and marketplaces. Web-Translations employ only professional native speaking in-country translators.
