Sheffield Translates to Business Success

11th July 2013

Local language company and Sheffield Chamber member Total Linguistics Ltd.

say South Yorkshire businesses are becoming increasingly savvy to the benefits of utilising professional language services to help access overseas markets. -Sheffield is really good at exporting, so good in fact that for many of our clients, exporting constitutes over 50 percent of their annual turnover. Local companies are increasingly proactive in reaching new overseas clients. Simple things like having a website page and marketing brochure translated into key languages can dramatically improve a company's chances of landing international business. States Michelle Daniel, Total Linguistics Ltd. Co-founder. South Yorkshire businesses have also had a notable increase in the willingness of employers to provide foreign language training for staff too. -We are getting more and more requests for in-house language classes. Usually, these take place over a lunchtime or after work so it doesn't impact too much on the working day. Companies who are serious about being on the international market know the positive impact of having staff speak their customer's native language, even if it's just the basics. Explains Eleanor Bagust, Total Linguistics Co-founder. Total Linguistics Ltd. works with a variety of organisations and industries to assist with all their language requirements including: manufacturers, professional services, creative & digital, travel & tourism and third sector organisations. They provide services in a wide range of languages but state that their most commonly requested languages for translations are: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Chinese and Arabic. Total Linguistics Ltd. are leading translation, tuition and interpreting specialists. Visit or call 0114 213 4646 for further information.
