Locaria’s entry stood out among a remarkable variation and high standards of the entries, reflecting the professionalism and commitment to excellence across the industry generally.

The judges were particularly impressed with Locaria’s entry. They said, “Locaria won because of their holistic approach to developments, with significant improvements in operations, efficiency, HR and client services over the past 12 months.

As the language industry’s leading professional body, ATC prides itself on a forward-thinking stance dedicated to maintaining the highest possible industry standards while supporting its members to thrive and grow in the competitive global economy.
