Universally Speaking

The slightly more catchy new name for localisation/QA specialist Partnertrans.

Partnertrans UK Ltd, one of the world's leading providers of specialist games services to the global games industry has unveiled a new identity and a fresh corporate image. The new corporate brand is called Universally Speaking and will be used worldwide, following the official launch at the Develop Conference in Brighton later this month.

Drawing on many years of high level industry experience, the team at Universally Speaking will continue to support game publishers and developers with their trade mark excellence in delivering localisation, Quality Assurance and audio services.

Universally Speaking managing director, Vickie Peggs, says: “We are really excited about the opportunity to launch a new identity for our already successful UK operation. Universally Speaking will continue to partner its international client base with a superb service. The new corporate identity reflects this and allows us to further strengthen our position in the market place.”

Universally Speaking will be introducing its new brand through a series of marketing and partnership activities at the Develop Conference. “We are very proud to be involved with this year’s Develop Industry Excellence Awards. Not only are we nominated in the Services category but we are delighted to be sponsoring the Publishing Hero Award,” says Peggs.

Following the rebrand, Universally Speaking will focus on its two-year plan for further expansion, to capitalise on the growth that has been forecast in the outsourcing sector of the games industry. Universally Speaking already captures a significant part of this market and anticipates rapid growth over the next couple of years.
