Ingenuiti, a leading translation and multimedia services provider in the eLearning industry, has announced the acquisition of OmniLingua Worldwide, LLC of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Under the terms of the purchase – effective as of Oct. 31 – the acquired business will continue to operate under the name “OmniLingua Worldwide” as a division of Ingenuiti.
The acquisition will allow Ingenuiti, headquartered in Virginia Beach, Va., to expand its core competencies by leveraging OmniLingua’s expertise in localization services.
OmniLingua has provided translation, localization, and technology solutions to major clients in the life sciences, automotive, heavy equipment, and manufacturing industries for nearly four decades. It has a long-tenured staff and worldwide network of linguistic partners who will continue to provide professional translation services to the combined client base.
“Ingenuiti specializes in providing engaging turnkey learning solutions from conception and development to translation and global deployment. The addition of the OmniLingua team to our company essentially doubles our strengths and will enable us to leverage their translation and localization expertise to better serve our existing clients and further expand our business,” said Maarten Fleurke, CEO of Ingenuiti.
Ingenuiti was founded in 1996 with an emphasis on supporting corporate globalization efforts. After becoming established as the most specialized localization company in the area of eLearning translation, the company started supporting corporations and NGOs with their eLearning development needs.
In addition to its Virginia Beach headquarters, Ingenuiti also has locations in Charleston, S.C., Dumaguete City and Cebu City in the Philippines, and Shenzhen, China. As part of this acquisition, OmniLingua’s Cedar Rapids, Iowa, office will remain in operation.
