London, April 21st 2018 -Language Connect has become a much honoured recipient of The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in International Trade 2018, the most prestigious business accolade in the United Kingdom.
The award demands exceptional growth as well as outstanding achievements in the overall context of the sector in which we operate and examines sustainability and impact on stakeholders at all levels of the organization, including clients, staff and suppliers.
The award scheme, which was originally instituted by royal warrant in 1965, and is celebrated on Her Majesty the Queen’s birthday, receives thousands of applications each year. The award for Enterprise in International Trade was awarded to just 152 companies this year.
Ben Taylor, who founded the company in 2003 with his wife Iwona Stepien, comments: “Iwona and I are honoured to receive the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. From Language Connect’s humble beginnings 15 years ago, the UK has proven to be the ideal market to establish our language services business and as a home base to expand internationally. We’re very proud to receive the royal seal of approval on behalf of the talented team at Language Connect. This award will inspire us further to push boundaries and reach new heights.”
Although Language Connect has experienced continuous healthy growth for more than a decade and is now ranked in the top tier of language services providers globally, recent years has seen extraordinary growth fueled by enterprise-wide client contracts in key sectors and leveraging the company’s global network.
