Telelingua and AAC Global become Acolad
A few days after the announcement of its intended acquisition of Amplexor, Acolad Group, Europe's leading professional translation services provider, is pursuing its growth and transformation strategy by bringing two of its brands, AAC Global and Telelingua, under the Acolad brand name. After rebranding 9 of the group's 12 brands in January 2019, Acolad is now continuing its development by offering all of its linguistic services under one name.
Rebranding AAC Global and Telelingua: another step towards a strong global brand
AAC Global is one of the Nordic region’s key players in the translation, B2B language training and e-learning fields. The group supports businesses in their international development by providing bespoke language services that meet their needs. Its 270 employees working in Finland, Sweden and Denmark offer unrivalled expertise in Nordic languages, corporate language training and e-learning.
Telelingua brings 30 years of translation expertise to the group, particularly in the life sciences, legal and industrial sectors. Telelingua's life sciences department is particularly renowned for its high quality and the excellent customer service it provides to clients in the medical and pharmaceutical sectors, both in Europe and the United States.
The creation of the Acolad brand: a winning strategy for the group
Bringing 9 of the 12 Acolad Group companies (Technicis, VO Paris, Cogen, Translation Probst, Arancho Doc, Soget, HL Trad, CPW and Semantis) under the Acolad umbrella in 2019 enabled the group to strengthen its position as the European leader in professional translation by presenting itself under a single, recognizable brand name. Acolad's multi-local positioning has helped the group stand out from the competition and offer its clients the responsiveness and flexibility of a local partner combined with the strength of a global leader.
Benjamin du Fraysseix, CEO of the Acolad Group commented, "After our successful rebranding, we are now aiming to anchor our positioning and streamline our processes around a strong brand. Offering our clients one single contact for all of their translation projects means that we can provide them with a wide range of services while keeping our personal touch."
The recent acquisition of Amplexor will enable Acolad to further develop its language and content service offering, while strengthening its position as a global leader.
