London, United Kingdom, 2008/05/08 - After setting up operations in Europe, Asia, New Zealand and America, Lingo24 opens a new office in Scotland – the country where the company was founded.
Seven years after Christian Arno, a young Oxford graduate at the time, established Lingo24 Translation Services in his parents’ home in Aberdeen, the company is returning to its Scottish roots by launching operations in Edinburgh – Scotland’s capital city. Since September 2001 – when the company which delivers professional language services was founded – to date, Lingo24 has begun operations all over the world: from Panama City in Central America to Timisoara in Romania and Christchurch in New Zealand.
This month, the translation services company with an international clientele will add a new Scottish office to its administrative and operational base in Aberdeen. Initially, two new In-country Account Managers, Eddie O’Neill and Patrick Boyle, will join the multinational team of Lingo24 employees.
Eddie O’Neill brings with him his considerable experience in sales, joining Lingo24 after many years of working in leading companies and running his own business. He will be concentrating on nurturing existing accounts and on establishing new business relationships, extending Lingo24’s high quality service to Scottish businesses with translation requirements. Eddie will work together with Patrick Boyle who, with 12 years of experience in sales in the pharmaceutical sector, is another welcome addition to Lingo24’s team. His efforts will focus on providing superior service and improved customer satisfaction among the company’s clients in the Pharma industry.
Lingo24’s new team working in the Edinburgh office will seek to develop and constantly enhance services for the company’s client base in the UK, and around the world.
Lingo24 (lingo24.com) is one of the fastest-growing translation companies in the world, with operations in the UK and seven other countries worldwide. Founded in 2001, the company is a great case study for: e-business (90% of its customers find it through the Internet), globalisation (its business is a barometer of globalisation for British business, and the company itself has 'internationalised' in a short space of time), EU expansion (the company has its largest operation in Timisoara, Romania), green business (the company has a strict environmental policy and limited office use to minimise unnecessary travel), home-working (Lingo24 employees work from home more than 95% of the time), youthful entrepreneurialism (the company was established by a 22-year-old graduate of Oxford University).
