Translation firm's language of success
A translation business has opened a new office in Lincoln.
The PAB Translation Centre moved into premises in Silver Street this month after it saw an increase demand for its services from city centre firms.
The business was founded by director Iwona Lebiedowicz in Boston three years ago when she saw a gap in the market for businesses struggling with language challenges.
But since then, it has seen growing numbers of Lincoln businesses seeking its services as they increase their trade with clients across the world.

The firm is looking to take on more staff for the office, with one new team member already recruited.
Dawn Crossingham, general manager at PAB Translation Centre, said: "Opening a new office in Lincoln has been a big step for us.
"But it is part of our bigger vision and it will ensure that we are best placed to supply a quality communication and translation service to clients in Lincoln and in the north of the county.
"By being physically closer to our customers we can offer a quicker service, and give them access to the right language tools to resolve any communication barriers they face."
The company's new office will support its work for the headquarters in Boston.
Its core services include translation, both standard and certified, interpretation and language tuition.
The firm works on projects both at home in the UK, as well as with businesses exporting to countries such as Lithuania, France, Russia, Germany, Portugal, Poland and India.
Lithuanian interpreter Erika Singh said: "One of the largest pieces of work that we recently undertook for a client was on a foreign delegation trip to the area.
"The company required support not only with the business negotiation aspect of the trip, but we were also on hand 24/7 to help interpret their social engagements in the evening as well as translate their technical material."
Ms Singh explained a Government drive to encourage more UK companies to trade overseas would help the PAB Translation Centre to grow further.
"With the Government's agenda to expand the export market, and with more Lincoln businesses exporting worldwide, we see continued expansion as inevitable," she said.
"We offer a free over-the-phone interpretation service for those unexpected situations businesses may get with their foreign clients, as well as additionally being available to aid with face-to-face interpretation."
The PAB Translation Centre opened its new office at a launch party with the deputy mayor and mayoress of Lincoln on Thursday, January 17.
Employees were joined by more than 30 of the company's Lincoln-based clients.
Ms Lebiedowicz said the office launch would help the company to improve its services.
"We wanted to thank them for their loyalty over the years," she said.
"The move will help us improve the service we offer them, as well as introduce our team to new businesses in the city centre that are unaware of the services we offer to assist them.
"As a thank you to all our clients, and delegates who attended our opening, we are offering a free culture or language session covering the basics elements that they would need to strike up a conversation."
