WA company celebrates milestone/in Members News /by Lee Massimino
Translators International, the West Perth based company founded by Jerzy Brodzki, is celebrating its 30th year providing language services.
The mining and resources industry has played a big part in the success of Translators International and Jerzy has up to 160 translators and linguists available to help him meet its demands
Apart from the commercial work, Translators International assists WA Government instrumentalities involved in commerce, trade and tourism.
Jerzy says his office is the only one in WA offering full simultaneous conference equipment. This means that business people visiting Perth and conference organisers do not have to bring technical equipment with them.
“Perhaps the major development in our profession during my time in business has been the establishment of the Australasian Association of Language Companies,” Jerzy said.
“It is a privilege and pleasure for me to be elected vice president of this new organisation.
“I am confident that those of us who are founding members will enjoy the benefits of the unification of language companies.” “We are enjoying our 30thanniversary and we foresee a bright future with the AALC,” Jerzy said.
