Eriksen Translations Inc. Celebrates 30th Anniversary with a Focus on the Future
Brooklyn, NY – November 16, 2016 – Eriksen Translations Inc. (www.eriksen.com), one of North America’s top 40 language services providers, is proud to announce 30 years of business. After three decades of building a solid reputation for delivering high-quality language solutions, Eriksen celebrates its strong history with an eye towards the future.
In 1986, armed with a typewriter and a passion for language, Vigdis Eriksen founded Eriksen Translations Inc., working out of an artist’s loft in Brooklyn with a handful of dedicated linguists. Eriksen now boasts an extensive network of linguists working in over 100 languages to offer a full range of language services across print, web, and multimedia to clients worldwide.
“Vigdis has been the guiding force behind Eriksen Translations, and still sets the standard for the company today,” states Director of Operations Hafida Santoudji. “Throughout it all, she has propelled the company forward with her unwavering dedication to high quality standards and exceptional customer service.”
After 30 years, Eriksen is proud to still consider Brooklyn home. Deputy Borough President Diana Reyna will attend the company’s December 9th anniversary celebration and present Eriksen with a citation of achievement recognizing the Brooklyn-based business. This citation is especially meaningful to Vigdis and her staff, who have spent so many years providing translation and interpreting services to support the education, health care, and social service needs of the local community’s multilingual residents.
The language services industry is rapidly evolving. Always keeping an eye on tomorrow, Eriksen continuously embraces advances in industry technology to respond to clients’ increasing demand for faster turnaround and competitive pricing. This year, Eriksen completed a major technology overhaul, with the rollout of a new translation management system, the launch of online client and vendor portals, and migration to the collaborative memoQ cloud server platform.
“At Eriksen, we are passionate about the art and science of translation,” states Vigdis Eriksen. “I am honored to have a dedicated, talented team who share my vision, and we are excited to meet the next 30 years with expertise, creativity, and innovation.”
