Capita acquires amity communications

Capita announces today that it has acquired amity communications, a London-based language service provider specialising in financial and legal translation services. The acquired business will become part of Capita Translation and Interpreting.

The acquisition will build on Capita Translation and Interpreting’s experience and expertise in the legal and financial sector, and will allow the Company to provide an enhanced translation service. The deal follows the acquisition and integration of International Translation Resources (ITR) earlier this year.

Kevin Gordon, managing director of Capita Translation and Interpreting, said: “This acquisition provides a fantastic opportunity to build upon Capita’s presence in the legal and financial translation sector.

“Working together, we will be in a great position to provide an enhanced service offering and attract new clients, and I look forward to welcoming the team into the business.”

Helen Gascoigne, managing director of amity communications, said: “Becoming part of Capita Translation and Interpreting will give us the scale and expertise to continue to expand and develop our offering. We look forward to working with our new colleagues and continuing to service our customers at the highest standards.”
