The Global Communications Business Group (GCBG) is proud to announce the opening of an office in Los Angeles.

Announcing the decision following a meeting of group directors in Seoul, Korea, Group Marketing Director Bob Robertson said that this is a natural progression as the company builds on its recent success in the international marketplace.

“Firms wanting to promote themselves and their products in diverse markets have come to know that effective communication is key to business success”, said Bob. “What you offer must be presented in the native language of the people you want to sell to, in ways which immediately seem familiar and natural to them. With offices in seven countries and associates around the world, this is where GCBG offers more than our competitors.”

Founded just three years ago, GCBG is a joint venture of five well-known and highly-respected translation companies, each based in a different part of the world – Germany, the UK, Singapore, Korea, Australia and New Zealand, and soon USA. Their coming together in GCBG enables clients wanting to communicate in multiple languages in different cultural environments to have their work done by experts operating on the ground in the actual marketplaces where these languages are spoken. Bob says, “This ensures a higher quality result at a more competitive cost. Companies who have compared us with other large companies have found this to be the case.”

By also establishing an office in Los Angeles, GCBG recognises that the USA is the world’s largest market for language translation and software localization, as well as the place where many new technological developments in our industry take place. Bob says that GCBG wants to be a part of that action.
