Christian Arno, Director of Lingo24 Translation Services (, will share some of the company’s experiences of setting up an operation in Eastern Europe when he joins a panel of experts at a prestigious Institute of Directors’ conference ( in London next month.

The event, which will be chaired by Miles Templeman, Director General of the Institute of Directors, is the second in the IoD’s International Insight for Business series. It will take place on 21st March at The London Landmark, and a panel of speakers – including four trade consuls from Eastern Europe – will offer practical advice on how to set up business in and with Eastern Europe.

Arno’s experiences of establishing and successfully growing Lingo24’s operation in Romania will be the focus of his 15 minute case study presentation. In it, he’ll describe the research that the company had to carry out in advance to determine the most appropriate location for its Eastern European operation, and will also outline the support received from Scottish Enterprise and local Romanian companies to help get Team Lingo up and running in a short space of time. In addition, the presentation will include information and advice on the logistics of running an operation in Eastern Europe from overseas.

Founded in 2005 with the appointment of two Romanian project managers and three web developers, Team Lingo has expanded rapidly in the last year, and now employs 22 full-time staff in and around Timisoara. Lingo24’s invitation to speak at the IoD’s conference is an excellent opportunity for the company to enthuse about Romania’s potential for British businesses. Says Christian: “I’m delighted to have this opportunity to share some of our extremely positive experiences of doing business in Romania.”

This IoD Business Briefing is targeted at directors of small to medium-sized enterprises who wish to find out more about the Eastern European market and to explore the potential openings and expansion opportunities available to them there.
