ATC elects new vice-chair

Ruth Partington, Managing Director of RP Translate based in Bristol, has been elected vice-chair of the Association of Translation Companies (ATC). 

The Association of Translation Companies (ATC) and Aston Business School have teamed up to launch a unique research project, designed to influence the future prosperity of the UK’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).  

With formal Brexit negotiations set to commence this week, two of the UK’s leading professional language bodies have added their voices to the many from across the business community, pleading directly to the government to prioritise securing the future of 3.3 million EU citizens living and working in the UK.

A survey of Europe’s Language Service Providers (LSPs) indicates continued optimism for the sector with more than two thirds of UK respondents predicting market growth for 2017.

The programme for the 2017 Language Industry Summit, taking place from 21-22 September in London, has now been published.

With our exit from the EU officially set in motion, the UK language industry, like many other sectors, faces a prolonged period of uncertainty as the terms of that exit are negotiated. While negotiations take place, the opportunities afforded to the sector by current exchange rates, in both supporting the growth of UK exporters and therefore expanding their international reach, are being maximised by many Language Service Providers (LSPs). Their services are now looking very competitive for purchasers based outside the UK. However, we must proceed with caution and not lose perspective. The longer-term threats to our economy and the language industry remain very real, and are something, which we, as an industry and the government, need to address as a matter of urgency.

This year, there has already been significant debate around the need to accelerate gender parity. Having worked in the language service industry for more than three decades I have witnessed a significant increase in the number of female owned Language Service Providers (LSPs), with the proportion of female directors now significantly higher than in many other professional services.
