Utah-Based U.S. Translation Company Acquires Media Specialist globotext

At the beginning of June, Salt Lake City-based translation agency U.S. Translation Company acquired globotext. With globotext having specialized in media and news translations for over 30 years, this acquisition allows U.S. Translation Company to be able to provide for their clients 365 days a year, with the ability for 2-3 hour turn-around-times.

Lynn Roberts, the founder of globotext, was motivated to combine forces after realizing that the company could benefit from the expertise and technology a leading translation agency could provide. After being approached by a number of other translation agencies, she chose to partner with USTC because of the synergy the two companies shared and their joint passion for customer service.

Speaking to the USTC team, CEO David Utrilla said his main motivation behind the move was to expand their current client offering. By acquiring globotext, USTC’s clients can now benefit from their faster turnaround times, a global pool of multilingual media specialists, and the fact they are open 365 days a year. Other staff members including CFO Dale Gibson and Director of Operations Kathy Sprouse are looking forward to helping globotext expand their operations. They’re also looking forward to seeing USTC benefit from what globotext offers.

While the acquisition took place at the beginning of June, both companies underwent 2 months of process integration which was completed at the beginning of August. This paths the way for U.S. Translation Company to grow through a series of strategic acquisitions that are planned both short and medium term. With this in mind, USTC are looking to acquire competitors mainly in the U.S.A. who share their values of integrity, discipline, and respect as well as their emphasis on continuous improvement in the areas of innovation, customer service, and employee growth.
