International Contact, Inc.—a multi-language communications agency headquartered in Berkeley, California—celebrates 38 successful years in business. The party will feature trivia about the company, the project managers and the customers, interspersed with pictures from previous celebrations, jokes and stories from long-term clients and staff.
One of the questions might be “What is the size of the translation industry?” And the answer is: an astounding $56 billion by the end of 2020! Due to globalization and large increases in the number of non-English-speaking people connected through the internet, linguist employment is projected to grow 20 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations.
The company has kept pace by growing its service menu, developing solutions to the customers’ every need in foreign languages. From translating brochures or flyers into one or any of over one hundred languages, it diversified into providing foreign language voice-over talent for video and websites, scoring the language fluency of prospective and current employees, training and providing interpreters for home visits to healthcare providers and multiple other services.
To service the dramatic growth in virtual-conferences, International Contact has developed Language-Hosting services in addition to virtual interpreting to provide interpreting support, helping clients succeed with their meetings as they move to a virtual platform.
Respectful of the circumstances of these unprecedented times, International Contact is throwing an extravaganza zoom party on Friday, November 13th, from 12:30 to 1:30 PST so clients and vendors from far flung locations and different time zones can attend: Arizona, Minnesota, Illinois, Florida, New York, Argentina, Peru, Switzerland, Germany, Czechia, Spain, China, Taiwan, among many others, WELCOME!
