100 languages, 2,500 language combinations and 20,000 translators: these are the numbers of Qontent, the group born in Puglia from the merger of two well-established companies in the translation and language localisation sector: Inprinting and 1Stop Translations. These are companies that boast prominent customers throughout the country and internationally, with a trust obtained thanks to the know-how acquired over the course of fifteen years of activity.
Inprinting began as a start-up in 2005, with the idea of proposing services dedicated to the management of textual content to publishing houses, understanding immediately how the demand for translations finds so many applications also outside the publishing world. Driven by the Internet and globalised market, the demand for language services grew dramatically, hand in hand with the needs of an increasingly attentive and numerous clientele.
To better serve prestigious and multinational companies, the internal structure, of the company was divided into specific departments: technology, IT development, marketing, HR, sales, administration and production. The following step was the establishment of 1Stop Translations, the other company of the group, strategically located abroad and dedicated to the immense world of Gaming.
The birth of the Qontent group represents the most recent step of this evolution and pursues the ambitious goal of becoming one of the leading Groups in Italy by 2022, as well as one of the reference points in Europe in the field of linguistic localisation, also in relation to ongoing negotiations with institutional investors.
The mission is clear: managing quality multilingual content checked with the help of cutting-edge technology, offering quick and customised solutions with a dedicated staff, ready and available to support the customer.
With a young team made up mostly of women, the Company is proud to pay particular attention to equal opportunities. The average age of the team – which is mostly composed of women – is under 30. In the language sector, in addition to background and skills, individual sensitivity is very important, as details and nuances often count more than anything else.
“We want to be a point of reference for the international language industry – says CEO Antonio Cesari – and, to do so, we continuously invest in human resources and technology. Our success is based on people: customers, collaborators and partners. Technology shortens distances and speeds up processes, but does not replace human relationships, which remain central both for work and everyday life.”
