Web-Translations buys Live Translation

online language services firm Web-Translations, which helps companies with international e-commerce, has acquired Batley-based Live Translation for an undisclosed sum.

The Leeds-based company said Live’s fast, professional translation and fully-managed document and website services made it “an ideal complement” to its own portfolio.

Daniel Rajkumar, managing director of Web-Translations, said: “This is a great opportunity for us, as we can now cover both ends of the market: the corporate and SME clients who have planned budgets to spend on their translation needs, and the smaller businesses and individuals who are looking for a more economical service, but still demand a certain level of quality.”

He said the next step will be to integrate Live Translation with email-translations.com and other services such as blog translation that Web-Translations offers to clients.

The service will also be expanded to include more languages.
