Translation, localization, and communications service provider EQHO is pleased to announce that it has relocated its corporate operations to the Marina Bay area of Singapore, where it will operate under the name EQHO Globalization Pte. Ltd.
Formed in the fourth quarter of 2014, the new company has acquired 99.9% of EQHO Communications Ltd. and EQHO Communications Lao Ltd. Both offices will now serve as production centres for EQHO Globalization Pte. Ltd.
The move is part of EQHO's wider drive to boost regional growth ahead of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) formation in December 2015, and to simplify its operations in Asia by creating a single client-facing entity and point of financial control.
It will also mean having greater access to a pool of highly skilled and talented professionals to further enhance project offerings and customer satisfaction for both new and existing clients.
The new office is situated overlooking Marina Bay, a 360-hectare extension of the city's adjacent Central Business District and an up-and-coming location for corporations in the region. It is extremely well served by amenities and infrastructure – by 2018, it will have at least six Mass Rapid Transit stations – and also boasts a dazzling view across the water to the impressive Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
EQHO Group’s Executive Director, Ross Klinger, said: “EQHO’s mission is to enable our clients to transcend cultural and linguistic barriers by providing a comprehensive range of high-quality, cost-effective communications solutions, and the decision to relocate our headquarters to Singapore and reorganize the Group’s operating companies will greatly enhance our ability to do so. In combination with the implementation of our new technology infrastructure during the coming year, we are confident that EQHO’s service offerings will continue to both meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.”
This is just the latest development in a string of accomplishments for EQHO. Not only was it recently awarded ISO 9001:2008 certification by TÜV Rheinland in recognition of its high standards of quality management, but it will be seeking to obtain ISO 9001:2015 and EN 15038 accreditation in 2015.
Meanwhile, for the second year running, independent market research firm Common Sense Advisory ranked EQHO Communications as a top-grossing language service provider for outsourced language services and technology in its Language Services Market: 2014 report.
Specializing in industries ranging from software and IT to manufacturing and energy, Singapore-based companies will now be able to take advantage of EQHO’s strategic location and localization expertise to execute complex language projects for all forms of media.
It is estimated that EQHO has translated over 45 million words in 2014 in 56 languages and its continual drive for improvement should see this total boosted further still in future years.
EQHO has been helping businesses expand into new markets since 1996, successfully delivering complex localization projects in fifteen industry verticals across Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas.
Working in all major commercial languages but specializing in exotic regional languages and dialects, EQHO’s expertise includes multilingual voiceover, software, website, and multimedia localization, in addition to standard document translation.
Thanks to our business model combining international account, production and project management teams with linguistic teams located in over 60 countries, we have attracted business from some of the world's most influential companies, including antivirus software specialists AVG, and multinationals P&G and Nestle.
