RWS Language Solutions, one of RWS’s four specialist divisions, today announces that three further business units will start trading under the division.

Eclipse Translations, RWS Group Deutschland GmbH and RWS Group Schweiz GmbH are already part of the RWS group of companies (see notes), but until now, have continued to trade under their existing brands.

This announcement follows the re-launch of the RWS brand, website and divisional structure last October to better reflect the new shape of the business and its client offering following a number of successful acquisitions.

Eclipse Translations, a leading provider of translation and interpreting solutions, and RWS Group Deutschland and RWS Group Schweiz, specialists in technical translation and terminology solutions, will greatly enhance the existing services and geographic reach of the division.

“This is an exciting time for the Language Solutions division,” said Stuart Carter, Managing Director of RWS Language Solutions.

The addition of three further business units will allow us to leverage our collective resources and expertise for the benefit of our clients,” he continued.

RWS Language Solutions offers a full range of translation and interpreting services to help businesses communicate globally. Delivered in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 17100, its services are trusted by companies across a range of sectors including: automotive, chemical, defence, energy, finance, insurance, legal and manufacturing.

To support this announcement, RWS today launches an updated Language Solutions section of the company website. Find out more here: https://www.rws.com/what-we-do/rws-language-solutions/.
