Today, a growing number of businesses understand the importance of communicating with stakeholders in their language to improve user engagement and enhance retention of the brand’s message. This assumes all the more significance in a land of 1.3 billion people that boasts of 1652 spoken languages and 22 official languages. And yet, the translation and localisation industry is at best disorganised and lacks the kind of impetus it needs.
BITS Private Limited, one of the oldest translation companies in India, has worked relentlessly to support the translation and localisation industry in India. In 2011, BITS instituted the Annual Language Industry Awards to recognise and honour those who have made significant contributions to the language, translation or localisation industry.
The awards are given out at the Gala Awards Function that BITS hosts every year on the occasion of the International Translation Day. Stay tuned for more announcements as regards the venue and the program for the evening as BITS hosts the 8th Annual Language Industry Awards on Sunday, 30 September 2018.
