TranslateMedia and Oban Multilingual Join Forces

TranslateMedia, the award winning global translation agency, and Oban Multilingual, the Brighton-based consultancy agency specialising in multilingual SEO and international SEM, forge an alliance to offer a complete localisation service.

London, United Kingdom, April 14, 2010 --( As both companies are contributing with years of expertise in their respective fields they are able to offer a highly customised service for international businesses wishing to optimise their SEO efforts. Patrick Eve, Managing Director at TranslateMedia, states, “We saw a need to offer a more digitally focused translation service in addition to our more traditional offering, and we therefore wanted to collaborate with a successful SEO agency that had the necessary technical expertise and track record. Oban Multilingual was therefore a natural choice as they have been offering expert advice in this field for years.”

“There is huge potential for businesses to expand into emerging foreign markets, however, with around 70% of those searching the web not speaking English, companies need an effective multilingual strategy. That’s where Oban and TranslateMedia step in.” says Greig Holbrook, MD of Oban Multilingual.
