Press Release Summary: Seeing rapid expansion over the last few years, with
operations now in eight countries around the globe, Lingo24 Translation Services
marks three years of flourishing business in one of Europe's fastest-growing
economies - Romania.

Press Release Body: Following the dotcom boom of the early 2000s, during which
founder and Managing Director Christian Arno started developing a website offering
online translation services, mostly to customers in the UK, Lingo24's first office
was set up and started growing at a quick pace. The beginning of 2005 was a
significant milestone - Arno headed towards Eastern Europe, to one of the largest
emerging markets in the region, to recruit a young and dynamic team in Romania that
would complement the group of language enthusiasts already working for him in the
UK, New Zealand and China.

In March 2005, Lingo24 began developing operations in its Romanian office, in the
city of Timisoara. With only five employees at the time, most of them managing
translations projects, the small group of language fanatics brought a fresh and
dynamic outlook to offering translation services internationally. Coming from the
ethnically diverse region of Western Romania, some of them were natively bilingual
and quickly adopted the multinational environment of Lingo24 as their home.

During the three years that followed, the Romanian team expanded rapidly and
consistently. By far the most numerous of the company's staff at the moment, its
Romanian employees are set on helping international business customers with their
translation projects, irrespective of the language or domain. Professional,
dedicated and friendly, they are happy to be celebrating Lingo24's third birthday in
Romania and look forward to many more years of successful business to come!
