So it’s done. More than a year after the operation started, Trans-Edit Group has completed its split, resulting in two separate companies, effective February 2, 2018.
Way2Global is a brand-new spin-off company specializing in Financial and Legal Translations headed by the original founder and CEO of Trans-Edit Group Laura Gori. It boasts the same key talents who wrote the history of the 30-year-old language service provider (LSP). In addition, a half dozen smart millennials have joined during the past few months, have lowered the average age to 33 years and brought the power and growth-hacking mindset of a startup.
Way2Global’s mission is to increase international visibility of brands and elevate their voice abroad by leveraging its disruptive innovation power as a startup paired with a three-decade track record of industry leadership.
Set up on August 2, 2017, as the world’s first LSP born as a B-corporation, Way2Global is proud of its unique, revolutionary business model promoting translation and understanding as a sustainable means to unite people across borders, languages and cultures.
With headquarters in Milan, Italy, where it has retained ownership of the 4-story building formerly occupied by the Trans-Edit Group, and offices in major business hubs worldwide, Way2Global champions quality based on its twin certifications (ISO EN 9001:2015 and ISO 17100) and is committed to raising the bar in the language industry while powering its brightest minds with pioneering technology. Its strength is an agile, innovative, sustainable business model inspired by US-based B-corporations that believe in pursuing business as a force for good.
Despite the prolonged efforts linked with the extraordinary operation, Way2Global aims to become a major force in the language services industry, as proven by its initial semester figures.
With a workforce of 20 people at the Milan headquarters, Way2Global’s objective over the next three years is to grow to the size it attained as Trans-Edit Group, i.e. to generate €4.5 million by the end of 2020.
