While our blogs normally focus on technical translations and what our global translation agency can do for your company, today’s post is about some exciting news we recently received. Technical translations aren’t always easy or straightforward, but our commitment to providing our clients with exceptional and detailed results has earned us some well-deserved notoriety.

For the past eight years, Louisiana State University has released a highly competitive and incredibly selective list of businesses owned or founded by LSU graduates, the LSU 100: Fastest Growing Tiger Businesses. Thomas Lacombe, GlobalSpeak Translations’ co-founder and president, graduated from Louisiana State University with a BS in geology in 1982, allowing us to be eligible for a nomination. On the list you’ll find financial professionals, business consultants, home renovation experts, window companies, and much, much more. Only five companies have ever made the highly selective list for eight consecutive years.

The 2018 nomination list has been released, and it’s official — GlobalSpeak Translations received a nomination!

While the nominations have been released, the official rankings won’t be revealed until the LSU 100 Gala, which takes place on Friday, November 16, in the L’Auberge Casino Hotel. This prestigious gathering features live music, delicious food, camaraderie, and of course, the big rankings reveal. This gathering also provides successful Tigers the opportunity to pass on the lessons and knowledge they’ve gained with undergraduates and future business owners. This event is a wonderful opportunity to see concrete examples of how LSU is positively impacting the world.

Nomination criteria include:

  • At least five years in business as of December 31, 2017
  • At least $100,000 in revenue from 2015 to 2017
  • Tiger-led or Tiger-owned from January 1,2015 until December 21, 2017
  • Good character, including:
    • A commitment to environmental responsibility
    • Integrity in every business dealing
    • High work standards
    • Respect for each and every employee
    • Positive contributions to LSU, the United States, and the world more broadly

The final rankings are determined by a calculation of a company’s compounded annual growth rate, which we won’t cover in detail here due to the complexity of the topic.

As a top global translation agency, we couldn’t be happier to be sharing this news with you. We would like to thank everyone who has supported and allowed us to provide them with precise and rigorous translations.

Regardless of where GlobalSpeak Translations is placed when the final rankings are released, this is a monumental moment in our company’s history, and we’re glad that you can be a part of it. We plan to update you as we learn more, so carefully watch our blog posts in the coming months to learn more, and come cheer us on at the LSU 100 if you’re in the area!
