PLANO, Texas, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2003, Claudia Mirza evaluated the market and realized there was a need for linguistic services that were backed by a solid business infrastructure and a customer-driven approach. So, she decided to launch a translation business that leveraged technology and developed business processes that simplified the system, reduced costs and increased speed-to-market.
Akorbi's growth over the last 10 years is proof that Mirza's vision had merit. Today, Akorbi is a multi-million dollar company that caters to corporate and government clients around the world, including federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
In the last decade, Mirza has witnessed the translation industry evolve into a mature market in which quality is no longer a competitive advantage – it's simply required. Today, the translation industry has highly sophisticated buyers, global competitors, heavy regulations, lower margins and shorter response times. As a result, Akorbi has become much more than a document translation company. It now offers value-added services such as multi-lingual staff augmentation to some of the world's largest technology companies.
According to Mirza, "Our 10 year anniversary is a celebration of not only Akorbi's accomplishments, but of the dedication of hundreds of people, including Akorbi's management staff, professional linguists, technology team and field personnel. We are also very grateful to our clients for their commitment to supporting small businesses."
In the last decade, Akorbi has earned recognition from local and national media, including: US News & World Report, SCORE, Hispanic Trends, Univision, Telemundo, El Sol de Texas, Al Día, Dallas Morning News, Forbes and Inc Magazine. Aetna Insurance recognized Akorbi in their 2006 Diversity Report and highlighted the superior value of Akorbi's offerings.
Akorbi offers business solutions in more than 170 languages. This includes a full range of language, localization and global marketing solutions including document translation, multi-lingual desktop publishing, project management, content management, web site design, software testing and engineering, voiceover, interpretation, over-the-phone interpretation, and bilingual staffing. The translation company holds ISO 9001 Certification, 8(a) Certification and Women's Business Enterprise Certification.
