Applied Language Solutions, a leading translation and interpreting company, are bringing a touch of spice to Huddersfield with the Indian extravaganza event they’re holding to celebrate the opening of their office in India. The event, which will be attended by local businesses, customers and local dignitaries, will take place on 24th May at their UK headquarters in Huddersfield. To honour the traditions of their new Indian team members and welcome them into the company, Gavin Wheeldon, CEO, will perform a speech to the Indian team in their native language, who will be joining the festivities through a live web link-up. Traditional Indian musicians will be playing time-honoured Indian music to create the authentic atmosphere, whilst guests sample genuine home-made Indian cooking provided by Curry Cuisine, a traditional Indian catering company. Attendees will also enjoy entertainment by a Bollywood dance performance given by Indian dancers from Salma’s Bollywood Academy. Gavin enthused: “This is the perfect time for us to expand into Asia, and the ideal way for us to show our respect for our new team member’s culture. This is a fantastic event to bring the two diverse cultures together and bring a sense of unity to our international business.” “The Indian extravaganza will be an excellent night to welcome those based in India to the company, and to allow our customers, staff and dignitaries in the UK to experience the wonderful traditions of India.” Applied Language Solutions is opening an office in Chennai, India as part of their ongoing strategy to globally expand the company and further develop its operations in Asia. The Indian office will provide crucial support to the Applied Language’s global sales and operations and the company is looking to recruit a large number of staff. Various employment opportunities are immediately available, and Applied Language plans to invest a further £10 million on expansion in the Asian market over the next five years. Gavin said: “In today’s business world, more and more companies are realising that communicating in their customer’s language is pivotal to their success in the global trading arena.” “India was chosen as a place to open an office as it is beginning to emerge as a dominant player in the global market. India is also renowned for having a highly skilled workforce, which is another great benefit of opening an office there. ” “Having a presence in Asia will give us a huge advantage. The fast–growing Asian economy offers fantastic business opportunities for Applied Language and will give us almost 24 hour global coverage, meaning our customers will have access to our services at any time of the day.”
