The consulting company NexumStp, serving around 22,000 Italian SMEs, is now a shareholder in InnovaLang, the Turin translation agency that has been one of Italy’s top 30 Language service providers (LSPs) for many years. The two firms closed the deal today, which sees 40% of the InnovaLang shares transfer to NexumStp.

Massimo Nardini, Partner and Head of International Development at NexumStp, commented: “For us, the agreement is a key step forward in facing the challenges presented by the market as it moves towards internationalisation. This is one of the core services that we provide. Developing our clients’ businesses overseas has steadily become an increasingly strategic asset. Hence the importance of this new structural partnership with InnovaLang, in whom we have found a reliable partner with an innovative approach.

From an initial core business in patent translation over ten years ago, InnovaLang’s skilled team of linguists and technology specialists have built an all-round service business as an LSP working to and from every language in the world. It supports businesses in all their content internationalisation needs, enabling them to communicate effectively in every sector, from manuals and web marketing to legal, finance and hospitality. One of the agency’s most advanced projects has been to develop a machine translation engine for the patent arena based on artificial intelligence and neural networks

Federico Perotto, InnovaLang Founder & Chairman, comments“We are very proud of this link-up with a great group like NexumStp, who share our passion for innovation and ambitious growth goals. This deal will enable us to provide excellent Italian SMEs with the specialist professional services they need to arrive and thrive on overseas markets effectively, efficiently and transparently.”
