Taking Social Translation to Europe: Conyac at ICT Spring Luxembourg

20 Feb 2014 at 21:55

Conyac team had an opportunity to present the Social Translation Service at the ICT Spring Conference. At the 2-day event we learned about the latest ICT technologies and solutions, listened to inspiring keynotes, met many potential partners and introduced Conyac to the European market.

Luxembourg Trade and Investment Office in Tokyo invited us to attend the conference along with 9 other Japanese startups. Our Japanese group was warmly welcomed by members of the Luxembourg Consulate in Tokyo, Japanese Embassy in Luxembourg, government officials, financial experts and local business leaders. In the recent years, Luxembourg is driving extensive programs promoting their country to the foreign businesses and organization, encouraging international collaboration and supporting innovative projects. Successful steel, finance and high technology industry, strategic position in the heart of Europe, low tax rates and high quality of life make the tiny country one of the greatest places to work. It also boasts an ultra-modern data center park with low latency connections to major European Internet hubs. Luxembourg has a lot to offer to any organization that is ready to expand their business in Europe.  And we witnessed their enthusiasm at ICT Spring.

In addition to having our booth at the venue we also took an opportunity to present our product during the startup pitching session. We were also very grateful for an invitation to a networking breakfast with our peers and ICT experts, organized by KPMG, P&T Luxembourg and other companies.

We were flattered by the positive feedback that Conyac got from the attendees and we also identified some product features we could adjust for European business needs. We will continue delivering best possible translation experience for our users > worldwide!
