The Translation People expands with Cicero acquisition

A translation and language services provider which has its headquarters in Greater Manchester has acquired a business based in south-east England.

The Translation People has bought Cicero Translations, which is based in Tunbridge Wells and has an office in London. The terms of the acquisition are undisclosed.

Cicero was founded in 1980 by managing director Paul Mason and has four staff. Paul will remain with the business in a consultancy role for a year before retiring.

In its latest financial year, Cicero generated revenues of £550,000, serving clients in sectors such as education, publishing, manufacturing, design and marketing and
e-commerce.

Its client base includes Carex and Imperial Leather maker PZ Cussons, Cambridge University Press, Andrex and Kleenex maker Kimberly-Clark, Heathrow Airport and Rentalcars.com.

The Translation People has its headquarters in Cheadle Hulme, and its other UK offices are in Uxbridge in Middlesex, Glasgow and Birmingham. Revenues in 2017 were a record £5.1m.

"Cicero is a well-run business with excellent staff, a very good reputation and an impressive client base"
Steve Wilde



Managing director Steve Wilde, who is pictured right with co-founder and director David Nichols, said: “We have been looking for a suitable acquisition in the London and south-east region for some time. Cicero is a well-run business with excellent staff, a very good reputation and an impressive client base.

“With its strong market positions in sectors such as education and financial and economic publishing, we believe Cicero will make a great addition to our business.

“Our combined expertise will ensure an even better quality of service. For Cicero and its clients, it is business as usual, with the added bonus that being part of a larger organisation will enable access to greater funding for investment in technology and access to our worldwide network of translators and interpreters.

“The enlarged business as a result of this acquisition creates an even greater force in the translation industry.”

Paul Mason said: “I’ve known the senior directors at The Translation People for some time and I am delighted that we have been able to complete this deal, ensuring continuity for staff and clients alike and the Cicero brand.

“I am confident that the business will continue to thrive as part of The Translation People.”

The Translation People, which has 38 staff, has a client base which spans more than 60 countries and ranges from small businesses and government departments to multi-national corporations. It provides translation services in almost 300 language combinations.
