Closer Proximity to Growing Customer Base Drives Relocation of the Company's Automotive Practice Group

Crain's Detroit Business - April 6, 2007, one of the world's premier providers of language and technology solutions, has relocated its Automotive Practice Group to Detroit, Michigan. The new facility will enable the company to better serve its existing client-base in the greater Detroit region while also serving as a catalyst for additional client relationships in the mid-western United States and Canada.

As the automobile capital of the US and the country's fourth largest exporter, Detroit has long been a welcoming locale for international manufacturers and is now home to almost 1,000 foreign-owned companies. Detroit has also been aggressive with tax incentives and other programs designed to attract multinational businesses to the area. Further, in the last decade, Michigan has seen exceptional growth in service industries, which now account for 80% of all jobs in the state.

Phil Shawe, President and CEO stated, "Our business model relies heavily on close coordination with our customers to drive success in their international business programs. Having our Automotive Practice Group headquartered in close proximity to the majority of that client-base will undoubtedly allow us to add even more value to these relationships."
