2018 in Brief
2018 is considered a fruitful year for AfroLingo as it was succeeded to overachieve many milestones that were pre-planned for this year. So here is a glimpse about what was achieved.
- 52% Growth Rate
From 2017, AfroLingo witnessed a great improvement in its growth rate with an increase of 56%. So AfroLingo starts 2018 with a focus on maintaining this growth and expands its business with new and existing clients and it kept the growth rate with 52%. Thanks to its hard-working team of sales, marketing and account and project managers who were dedicated to achieving such numbers. Moreover, we can’t forget the major cornerstone in this success which is their in-house team of translators and linguists who maintain their high-quality standards of translation.
- Kenya Office
As part of our expansion, we managed to open a new office in Nairobi, Kenya on 25th June 2018. This step gives AfroLingo a marvelous advantage to reach a new market and work with more clients. Also, this was considered as a challenge to start in a new fresh market with tens of translation companies that are based in Kenya for a long time. But thanks to AfroLing’s good reputation and experience, this was not an easy mission but we managed to make it possible.
- ISO 17100 Certificate

AfroLingo successfully passed surveillance audits for ISO 17100 Certificate and had officially confirmed itself as an international company that adheres to certain quality steps to make sure that its services are the best.
