Global Language Technology company thebigword is celebrating 1 year since opening their operations centre in Pune, India.
The centre was originally opened to allow thebigword to expand in the APAC, with India being the 6th fastest growing economy in the world, playing host to 22 different languages and a population of over 1.34 billion.
This establishment of the larger presence in India allowed thebigword to offer specialised translation and interpretation services using their all-in-one WordSynk platform, as well as expanding their vision of giving everyone the power to communicate without language barriers.
WordSynk provides instant access to translation and interpretation services such as Video Remote Interpreting and Telephone Interpreting, and connects users to a network of over 20,000 professional linguists in over 250 language combinations.
Since opening the centre in Pune has allowed thebigword to support operations 24/7 in India and work with global clients in Japan, China, Europe, UK and the USA.
In the last year, the India team has worked on thousands of projects, translating more than 4 million words as the direct result of these projects. The WordSynk all-in-one application also launched during this time, allowing the team to be involved in projects worth 28 million words, in more than 60+ language pairs.
The team in the operations centre has also grown by 10 times in size and has allowed thebigword to create a dynamic base in Pune and helped build a strong reputation in the APAC, with the base team speaking 13 languages between them.
More than 50% of the team comes from the core translation industry and has an average of 5 years of experience working in the localisation domain. Their new starter training program is developed with all best practices in mind and is considered one of the best in the industry.
Commenting on the 1-year celebration, Chief Executive Offer at thebigword, Joshua Gould said: “Congratulations to our India team on reaching its first anniversary. The team have made a fantastic contribution and really helped us to build an even stronger reputation in the APAC.”
