Prestige Network, language services specialist, has launched a new service to regional and local newspapers throughout the UK to provide non-English language editions of newspapers to address the cultural diversity of communities within the UK.
The launch of this service began with an innovative collaboration between ‘The Reading Chronicle’ newspaper and Prestige Network to produce and launch a Polish edition of this popular Reading newspaper. This was a great success and the Polish edition sold out within 2-3 days.
Salome Wagh, Operations Manager for Prestige Network, said: “It was a challenge for Prestige as we had to translate five thousand words of the Reading Chronicle into Polish with a very tight deadline of just 3 days. However, it was an exciting and ground-breaking project and has become a springboard for our summer 2007 campaign."
"Newspaper's stories can be produced in different languages to ensure that a town’s non-English speaking population understand local services and issues better. In the instance of ‘The Reading Chronicle’, it was a Reading paper for Polish people, not a Polish paper for Polish people - we believe this formula will work anywhere in the country."
Last year (2006) Prestige celebrated being identified as one of the top 5 language service agencies in the UK in a report published by Plimsoll Publishing, who provide financial analysis for industry sectors across the UK. Prestige was assessed on its commercial and financial strengths; the results were compared against one hundred and seventy language service providers in the UK.
