Award win for small but mighty High Peak firm
A longstanding Derbyshire business that trades in the spoken and written word is celebrating an award win.
Peak Translations in Whaley Bridge, won Project Management Team of the Yearin the annual ATC Language Industry Summit Awards. The awards, hosted by the Association of Translation Companies, seek to recognise and celebrate excellence in the language services profession.
Project managers Beth Boorman, of Whaley Bridge, and Madeline Prusmann, of New Mills, were delighted to be announced as the winners on Thursday (20th) evening at the gala dinner and awards ceremony in Cardiff.
Managing Director Helen Provart, of Disley, said: “Our small team works consistently hard on all the projects they handle. Highly skilled and fully qualified linguists, they are also dedicated, loyal and flexible. Together, we pull out all the stops to achieve a client’s deadline, even meeting in a hotel car park to hand-deliver time-critical documents.”
“I am immensely proud of Beth and Madeline to have won this prestigious award. They work extremely hard in all aspects of their project management roles and, as a very small team they have to take on a number of additional roles within the company. They achieve amazing results for their clients and it is fabulous they have received recognition from the industry and their peers for the great work they do.”
