The complete language service company
The English Centre and Lingsoft joined forces in 2009 when Lingsoft bought a majority shareholding in the English Centre, which became part of Lingsoft's corporate group. As a result of the merger, the English Centre's range of languages and services was expanded. In addition to English translations, we can also deliver translations in any other languages your company needs. The English Centre works with a pool of experienced regular translators and a large number of trusted Lingsoft translators. Thanks to our broad network of translators, we can provide translations in all European languages.
Founded in 1986, Lingsoft Oy is a versatile language technology company. Lingsoft's products and services are related to the analysis, management and use of the written and spoken language. The main fields are translation, linguistic quality assurance, speech technology, educational programmes, electronic books, language tools and resources and glossaries. The company represents the very best in internationally competitive Finnish linguistic expertise.
Microsoft, along with many other IT companies and newspaper companies, is among Lingsoft's biggest customers. Lingsoft's associated companies also include Ellibs, which produces e-books and e-library systems, and Imagetalk, which develops icon-based user interfaces. Together, the companies form a broad collection of experts in many spoken and written languages, whose know-how is helping companies to thrive and step into the international arena.
Lingsoft's operations are best described by the term "language management". This refers to all of the ways in which a company's or a community's working processes and operations are enhanced through the management of linguistic elements and the use of language tools. The result is an improved quality of communications and savings on time and resources. Language management helps companies succeed in a multilingual world that presents us with a deluge of information.
