Comtec continues to expand as exports grow

As more and more UK businesses branch out overseas, Comtec continues to expand to keep up with the growing demand for translation services.

Exporting has never been higher on the UK business agenda, and all the signs are that 2013 will be an even more successful year for the UK export economy.

Thirty-nine per cent of UK exporters reported increased sales in the third quarter of 2012 according to figures recently released by the British Chamber of Commerce, and underlying exports in the UK grew 4.1% in the same period. Furthermore, countries such as Russia and Poland are expecting UK imports to grow 7% a year during 2013-2015, meaning now is the time to consider exporting.

We have witnessed this growth in exporting first-hand through working alongside one of our clients, UKIP Media & Events, a leading publishing and exhibitions business. Working closely with the company, Comtec provides marketing translation services to support promotion of UKIP’s trade shows and exhibitions worldwide.

“We produce, promote, and host highly successful, first-class conferences and exhibitions with a clear focus on expanding knowledge, sharing opinions, ideas and visions, while maximising networking opportunities and creating strategic business relationships. It’s absolutely vital that our global audience receives the correct information in a language they understand. Comtec is fully entrusted as our sole translation service provider, and continues to provide us with a second-to-none service,” said Lewis Hopkins, Deputy Production Manager, UKIP Media and Events.

In order to keep up with growing demand, we have expanded our team with the addition of a new Business Development Executive, Laurence Rickards. His appointment followed that of two new account managers, Marzena Kubiak and James Brown, who joined our team earlier in 2012. Marzena and James now manage a wide variety of projects for our UK client base, including translation of technical manuals and localisation of websites into a variety of languages.

To ensure the highest quality service, Comtec also continues to invest in the latest technology, including further investment in translation memory software. The software enables Comtec to store all previously translated content securely and confidentially for their clients to be accessed for further projects, thereby reducing costs and ensuring faster turnaround times. We have also recently launched a new review tool to allow local market teams to view translated content on-line and provide feedback quickly and easily.
