Today is a very exciting one in Global Lingo’s story. We’re proud to announce that we are opening a Global Lingo office in Cluj, the capital city of Transylvania in Romania. The office will open with a team of five who have been specially selected to support our translation and transcription offices in Leeds, London and Singapore.

A great opportunity in Romania

In early January, Global Lingo’s Managing Director Andrew Trotter, Richard Michie and Paul Green visited Cluj to hold face-to-face interviews and scope out the opportunities available.

“It was bitterly cold when we landed in Romania, but the warm welcome we were given, and the enthusiasm and drive of the people we met, meant that it was an easy decision to make in the end. Cluj holds great opportunities for inward investment. There are many large UK companies based in the city, so there’s a great talent pool already there. Opening the Romanian office is a great step for us as it now gives us coverage over several time zones, which will mean our clients get an even better service than they already do,” said Andrew.

The Romanian team members will be flying to the UK in the middle of February to meet the team in London. From there they’ll travel on to Leeds for an intensive two-week induction and training programme at the company’s offices at Thorpe Park.

Diana Lupu, who joins the Global Lingo Cluj office as Financial Controller from accounting giant PWC, said, “All I can say is that I’m very excited and I can’t wait to get started. I am sure the Cluj office will be very successful.”
