The prestigious independent consulting firm Common Sense Advisory has once again prepared its annual ranking of the most important companies in the world in the translation and interpreting industry, with the participation of more than 1,000 companies from across the globe. With over 150 million words translated last year, an average of 350 daily interpreting sessions, and over 900 clients around the world, SeproTec Multilingual Solutions has consolidated its position as one of the leading companies in the industry.
The multinational translation and interpreting company, headquartered in Spain, has undergone dramatic growth in recent years. Some months ago, SeproTec announced the opening of a new production center in Austin, Texas, an initiative that forms part of its plan for international expansion. The goal, according to Juan Julián León, the company’s CEO, is to “consolidate a key strategic market and increase the company’s production capacity with the large contracts signed in the USA in recent years.”
This is not the only news, as a few weeks ago SeproTec announced its acquisition of lidolang specialist translations, which León calls “one of Eastern Europe’s leading localization companies, with the greatest growth potential.” In addition to improving the company’s production capacity, this purchase will also broaden its synergies due to the vertical integration of its production processes; its geographical coverage, which makes it possible to offer a more localized service all over the continent; its portfolio of languages; and its expansion into the strategic international markets in which lidolang is already well positioned.
Since the publication of the latest ranking, SeproTec has maintained its position in spite of strong investment in international expansion, which has allowed SeproTec to compete in a larger number of markets with the level of quality that has always distinguished the company.
For León, “This is recognition for the work and effort of all our team and a sign that our commitment to internationalization is allowing us to grow in the large international markets. Our challenge now is to continue growing in order to become closer to our clients and expand our portfolio of multilingual solutions.”
SeproTec Multilingual Solutions is a company with over 25 years of experience in the industry, and has developed a wide range of services that help different companies and institutions carry out their international communication without having to worry about language-related issues. It operates in 14 countries and has over 400 employees.

The work of the purchasing department has become a key factor in improving a company’s bottom line. If a company aspires to excellence, its purchases must reflect this by matching its real needs. For this reason, and with the commitment of helping the different purchasing department professionals understand the advantages of a global service that covers all the multilingual needs of a company (translation, interpreting, localization, etc.), SeproTec is sponsoring the 19th Purchasing Professionals Congress, which will be held at the Teatro Goya in Madrid on May 25 and 26.

The company’s stand will showcase the most innovative services in the translation and interpreting industry, such as software and website localization, multi-language digital content management, plus other services designed to help companies become truly international.

This event has become the leading discussion and networking forum for professionals in this field. Executives from large corporations, purchasing managers from small and medium-sized businesses, and other professionals with links to purchasing, will pass on their experience on the latest topics of interest to all purchasers, so that the attendees can take back to their organizations new innovative, value-creating models and tools.

SeproTec’s sponsorship of the 19th Purchasing Professionals Congress is further evidence of the company’s commitment to supporting all initiatives that promote the growth of the sector and contribute to the development of a global market.

CHANGE MANAGEMENT AND ITS PHASES

marzo 15th, 2016 | Posted by admin in SeproTec - (0 Comments)

It is innate to human nature that all of us should find it difficult to make and accept a change; some more than others, but everyone finds it an effort to make a change.

Society is obliged to adapt to voluntary and involuntary changes, which are either imposed on us or we impose on ourselves to move forward. The success or failure of a change depends on two key factors: time and the different phases. At the end of the last phase, a new change is always started.

Change is a cycle of continuous improvement in which the only stability lies in overcoming its different phases:

Phase 1: Analyze the problem. All changes start with a problem, a crisis or something which is not going well. It doesn’t matter whether this problem is large or small; if something distorts or prevents us from advancing, it has to be changed.

Phase 2: Search for a solution. This may be one of the most creative and worrying phases of the cycle, but it is decisive. Mistakes may be made in finding a solution. In either case, if we make a mistake there is no need to worry; we can always go back to phase 1.

Phase 3: Search for a leader. Alexander the Great, Steve Jobs and Luke Skywalker. They were all brave leaders who drove large changes, even in fiction. However, they didn’t manage this overnight and they also had their failures along the way. But their determination, time and their completion of the different phases helped them reach their goal.

Phase 4: Communicate the vision. Every leader needs a vision; in other words, they need to know where they are going and what they want to achieve. Having a clear idea and knowing what is to be achieved is an essential condition in a leader.

Phase 5: Delegate and motivate. In addition to knowing where they are going, what the goal is and the desired end result, leaders must have strong support behind them to help them carry on come hell or high water.

Phase 6: Lead to victory. Alexander the Great had no easy task and found many obstacles on his way: disease, plagues, technical problems. Anything can happen and undermine our effort. We have to assume that all obstacles are part of the path that we have to follow.

Phase 7: Reward and disseminate. Having achieved our objective, it has to be celebrated and all of those surrounding us must be included in the success because we have all collaborated to achieve it.

Phase 8: Secure the change. Intrinsically, when the change is established we are analyzing both the benefits of the change and opening the doors to new improvements. So a new cycle is beginning which starts at Phase 1: analyzing a new problem and thus maintaining the cycle of continuous improvement.

Therefore, by setting goals, by establishing phases and through determination, the Mediterranean was conquered, the Apple Empire was conceived and the Death Star was destroyed. Let’s not be frightened of change and move forward in harmony to conquer everything we propose.

SeproTec Multilingual Solutions, one of the most innovative and global firms in the localization sector, is continuing the roll out of its international expansion plan with the opening of a new production center in Austin, Texas.

The main objective of this new opening is to reinforce its position in a key strategic market and bolster its productive capacity to reflect the major contracts it has won in the USA over recent years, since the launch of its ambitious international expansion plan in 2004 with the opening of its first international office in the UK. SeproTec is now active in 13 countries with 18 offices, serving over 900 clients worldwide.

With more than 150,000,000 words translated a year and an average of 350 interpretations every day, SeproTec Multilingual Solutions has enjoyed strong international growth, shooting up eight places in the most important global ranking for the sector – the Common Sense Advisory Top 50 – in just one year.

SeproTec Multilingual Solutions’ choice of Austin as its US operating center is based on its commitment to innovation and leadership in global localization solutions. The expansion and development of the city as a technology hub and the opportunities for attracting talent, combined with a location in a time zone that enables us to offer enhanced customer service, make Austin a key strategic center for the company’s future.
