Thursday, 30 March 2017
Beattie, the creative communications group, and international language service specialists One Global have announced an agreement to offer businesses multilingual and strategic PR marketing campaigns across the globe.
Through this trusted partner agreement, Beattie now adds expert content translation and global interpretation plus multilingual SEO and digital services to its award-winning integrated communications offer.
One Global, experts in helping businesses trade on the international stage and explore new markets, now adds PR and digital marketing services to its multilingual expertise, enabling its clients to communicate with the world’s media as well as prospective clients in their own language.
Rachel Gladwin, director of Beattie North, says: ‘This partnership creates a truly unique offer with unlimited potential to help businesses expand or explore new markets.
‘In a year that we at Beattie announced our expansion into Canada, including plans to open an office in French-speaking Montreal, we believe One Global’s expert linguistic skills fit seamlessly with our expanding team’s PR, marketing and creative talent.
‘As in business, clear communication is essential and we look forward to working with One Global to bring international businesses closer together through unrivalled audience and media understanding.’
Paul Green, managing director at One Global, says: ‘We believe in business without borders and, by partnering with Beattie, we are not simply adding another dimension to our services but removing boundaries.
‘Rather than just translate existing content, this offer allows UK businesses to create bespoke overseas PR and digital marketing campaigns and maximise their reach and impact.
‘On the international stage in an age of digital connectivity, localised and translated PR and marketing content are critical in helping support businesses reap the benefits of trading across the globe
Coming just weeks after Beattie reported a record pre-tax profit of £624,000 for 2016, a rise of 6 per cent on the previous year, with turnover up 7 per cent at £9.3 million, the partnership announcement underlines an outstanding 12 months for the business.
