Our world is shrinking, making global citizens of us all. Technology has made it faster, cheaper and easier to connect with far flung corners of the globe and journeys that would have been ventures into the unknown just a generation ago can now be planned, researched or "virtually" experienced online.

That's great news for business brands targeting the world's consumers. According to the UN Broadband Commission, a third of the global population already has internet access and this is forecast to rise to 40% - some 3 billion people – by 2016.

Multi-language Law Firm Website Content

24 Feb 2014

Corporate legal practice has undoubtedly become a global phenomenon – but are the big commercial law firms meeting the challenges facing international practice?  Many firms have been rising to the challenge, but there’s still some way to go.  In-house lawyers were warned only last year1 to demonstrate ‘cultural awareness and affinity’ - or risk being left behind by their competitors.

Welcome to amity.

17 Feb 2014

Six years ago we began helping clients with business translation, transcription and interpreting. 

Back then, it was really important for us to talk - and listen! – to our clients.

Talking helps us understand what you want and listening ensures that we get things right for you. 

Over the years, talking has also helped to grow our business.  Since launch we’ve translated millions of words and published thousands of pages, and most of that work has come directly from word of mouth recommendations when satisfied clients recommend us to their networks.  We’re proud to have earned that trust.

Now, amity is bigger than ever.  In 2013 alone we translated over 8 million words, and we know that we need to talk to you, the businesses we serve, on a bigger scale, so today we’re launching the amity blog.

Our blog posts will share updates about what’s new in translation or transcreation,...
