Right Ink, a company specialising in premium translation services, is taking the plunge: the Mons-based agency is opening a branch in North America, in Montreal in Canada.
Guillaume Deneufbourg, director: “thanks to our network of 2,000 translators based around the world, we can offer our services in any linguistic combination and any area of business, from technical and legal to medical and marketing. We have recently seen an exponential rise in demand for Canadian French. This office in Montreal will mean that we can offer our customers an even better service, thanks to a team of in-house translators based in Quebec”.
How did this branch come about? “As is often the case, it was a combination of circumstances (laughs), but it was also thanks to my contacts over there, in particular at the University of Montreal, which was the first institution to set up a university translation programme in the 1960s, although there is extensive experience of teaching professional translation throughout the country.”
Commercially, this development should also help to open some doors for the Belgian agency. “Indeed, one of our goals is to have one foot in North American to make the most of the incredible potential for growth over there, both in Canada (for European French) and the United States,” the strategy consultant confirms.
We wish all the very best to the agency, which certainly seems to be flourishing.
