Universally Speaking has announced that it has been nominated for an industry service award in the Best Games Service Provider category, at the ME Awards, taking place on September 25 at the Royal Garden Hotel, London.
The award, which will be judged by a panel of over 400 industry executives, follows Universally Speaking's successful rebranding from Partnertrans UK Ltd at the Develop Conference in Brighton.
"I'm delighted with this nomination," said Vickie Peggs, managing director of Universally Speaking. "It reflects our position as the localisation agency for the mobile sector. Our client list contains a who's who of mobile entertainment. Mobile game services have become an increasingly important part of our business and we are committed to continued growth alongside our mobile partners."
This is the second award the localisation and quality assurance company has been nominated for since its rebranding, having been a finalist at the develop awards.
The company has also announced the appointment of Connie Armstrong as marketing manager and Jean-Baptiste Bagot as localisation project manager.
"I'm delighted that Connie has joined my team," said Peggs. "Connie's experience in the entertainment industry, handling corporate communications for major blue chips and overseeing target driven campaigns will firmly allow Universally Speaking to pursue its aggressive growth plans."
"Jean-Baptiste brings an enormous amount of experience to our already established team. He has settled in quickly and has already become a highly valued member of my localisation team. I'm very pleased he has agreed to come on board," Peggs added.
