Betterlanguage's sponsorship supports a wide range of meetings and networking opportunities designed to provide exporters with opportunities to learn, share and network with other exporting organisations.
Mike Hunter, CEO of betterlanguages.com, said of the agreement:
“As a long standing emita member and active exporter ourselves, we saw first hand the value of the programme of events emita offers. Emita is an important and highly regarded trade association and we’re delighted to be linked to them through this agreement. We hope that this will not only boost the take up of emita’s events, but will also help us to contribute to driving export growth across the region.
We have experienced a marked increase in enquiries and sales from SME's requiring translation into lots of languages. It is a clear sign in the upturn in the economy, and I'm pleased that emita is supporting this demand.”
Susan Hallam, emita Chairman, expressed delight with the new sponsorship agreement.
"The support provided by Betterlanguages demonstrates a strong belief in the value of international trade to businesses in the region. As an industry leading provider of translation services, Betterlanguages participation in emita signals its commitment to furthering the role of export in building successful businesses and a flourishing regional economy."
