Lifeline expands French customer base

Preston-based Lifeline Language Services has acquired the French commercial clientele of London-based Ros Schwartz Translations Ltd (RSTL).

A Fellow of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting, a Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and an award-winning translator herself, company owner Ros Schwartz is highly respected in the language industry.

This acquisition allows Lifeline to takeover language service provision for a number of prestigious French clients.

Lifeline has previously been supporting these clients in French to English translation for RSTL, and now looks forward to offering the acquired clients a full range of languages and services including multilingual typesetting, transcription, and multimedia audio-visual services in over 100 languages.

Lifeline managing director Lynn Everson said: “We’re delighted to be able to announce the acquisition of this business stream. Working alongside Ros to provide translation for these clients since 2000, we’ve built a good relationship with the businesses concerned and our initial meetings with them in Paris following the acquisition indicate very high interest in our other services and languages, which we’re already seeing converting into orders.

“The acquisition is expected to deliver a £300,000 increase in turnover over the next three years, and of course also provides an excellent launch platform into the wider French market for us.”

Ros added: “I chose to entrust my clients, some of whom I’ve worked with for over 25 years, to Lifeline because I know that we share the same commitment to quality and customer service. I know that I’m leaving them in the best possible hands.”
