The Translation People strengthens presence in Germany

Second office opening and further recruitment planned

The Translation People strengthens presence in Germany

The Translation People’s 10th anniversary year has got off to a bumper start, with revenues in the first quarter surging 28 per cent compared to the same period of 2016.

Growth in Germany, the company’s largest overseas market, is leading the way and the firm is expanding its operations there to meet soaring demand.

The translation and language services provider, which has its headquarters in Cheadle Hulme, Greater Manchester, established a branch in Bonn in 2010 under the leadership of operations director Jasmin Schneider.

It strengthened its commitment to Germany earlier this year by establishing The Translation People GmbH, serving clients across the country and in neighbouring Austria and Switzerland.

The German operation has generated double-digit annual revenue growth since its formation but has seen demand accelerate in recent months, with a 150 per cent year-on-year increase in the first quarter of 2017.

Buoyant sectors include software, energy, logistics, food, manufacturing, IT and the creative industries.

"We will be investing to increase our German operations and staff numbers over the coming months"

Now the firm is to looking to open a second German office along with further staff recruitment. Munich is under consideration for the new base, to cater for clients across Bavaria and south-east Germany.

David Nichols, managing director of The Translation People GmbH, said: “Our business has been building successfully in Germany for a number of years now, and the creation of a new company there was a logical extension as we take on bigger clients.

“Replicating a successful strategy in France, this approach in Germany means we are in a better position to provide a more flexible, efficient, tailored and personal service to our clients.”

He added: “We will be investing to increase our German operations and staff numbers over the coming months in response to our growing customer base.”

The Translation People has a global network of nearly 4,500 translators after adding 235 in 2016 due to increasing demand. Revenues last year rose by 15 per cent to a record £4.5m.

In the UK, growth this year has been fuelled by rising demand from sectors including manufacturing, retail, health and the environment.
