MultiLing-Lyle-Ball-enYesterday, I attended an awards luncheon with MultiLing CEO Michael Sneddon and his wife where Utah Business magazine honored MultiLing as one of the fastest growing companies in Utah (see press release here). MultiLing has more than doubled its revenue over the past five years – the period evaluated for the magazine’s annual Fast 50 list – which is no small feat for any 26-year old company, especially one in Utah.

Do you realize that Utah ranks as the top state for business for the third year in a row, according to the Pollina Corporate study for 2014, a joint endeavor with the American Economic Development Institute? The study examines 32 factors and has become recognized as the “Gold Standard” for evaluating states. Additionally, Utah was ranked No. 1 on the Forbes’ List of The Best States for Business three years in a row.

Let me share three areas that I believe are contributing to MultiLing’s impressive growth:

1. A strong focus on the IP market – we know our strength and we’re playing to it.

2. The increased demand for IP translations from Global 500 enterprises in the United States, Europe and Asia.

3. A strong executive team working together to make the right decisions for the company.

MultiLing is the innovative leader in developing  best practices in IP and patent translation services. We help enterprises reduce the total cost of patent ownership with faster time to grant and foreign patents that are better able to withstand prosecution. Our streamlined translation process, as well as technologies such as terminology management and translation memory, help clients optimize timelines and costs for their most important assets. We are attracting pharmaceutical, life sciences, technology and IP law firm clients and we look forward to many more years of growth!

Watch for MultiLing at the upcoming Intellectual Property Organization (IPO) Association’s 42nd Annual Meeting, Sept. 7-9 in Vancouver, at booth 301. We hope we have the chance to see you there.

MultiLing Client, Yokohama, Receives Local Business Award

Yokohama Tire Corp. has just received the Fullerton Chamber of Commerce’s annual Presidents’ Business Achievement Award in the large-company category. This award recognizes innovation, entrepreneurship and outstanding business citizenship.

The Fullerton Chamber of Commerce acknowledges Yokohama’s numerous civic efforts, most notably the Forever Forest initiative, in which the company planted 500 trees at its Fullerton headquarters. This initiative is part of a larger companywide program spearheaded by Yokohama Rubber Co., the local firm’s parent, which aims to plant more than 500,000 trees worldwide by 2017.

In addition, Yokohama was recognized for its contributions to more than 20 different charitable organizations, including the American Red Cross’ Japanese earthquake relief fund.

MultiLing partnered with Yokohama Rubber in early 2009 to prepare patent translations in English, German, Chinese, Korean, Finnish, and Russian. MultiLing translation services also include translation of litigation related documents for patent right infringement cases.

This competence makes MultiLing a preferred provider of translation services for Yokohama Rubber’s IP department.

Congratulations to Yokohama!
