New York, U.S.: 16 June 2011 – GTS Inc., the spin-off technology arm of global language services company, thebigword, has announced a major investment program for the U.S.

GTS was initially established to provide technology solutions to thebigword, to improve the cost-effectiveness and quality of translation and interpreting services. Its developments, which include ‘over the phone’ interpreting applications and translator bidding systems, have helped propel thebigword into the world top-20 in its sector.

A range of software products developed for the languages industry have cross-sector applications, and it is this area that GTS plans to exploit with a multi million dollar investment. Its offering includes: Workflow Automation, Telephony Applications, Training Applications, Authoring Tools, Content Management Systems, and System Development.

The company is already in talks with a number of leading U.S. based companies, public sector organizations, and major Silicon Valley players.

CEO Josh Gould says: “GTS-built technology is already being used in more than 10 per cent of the top companies globally and our success in the U.S. has endorsed the abilities of our development team”.

“Now it the right time to invest in U.S. market expansion through a major investment injection into our two key locations of New York and California.”

The investment will involve growing the company’s team of development engineers; currently it has 80 based in the United States and UK.
