LKT begins life as a one-woman operation in Director Louise Killeen’s spare bedroom with one employee. After just a few short months the business relocates to office premises in nearby Middleton to accommodate a second employee.
Siobhan achieves Qualified Membership status of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (MITI), winning the John Hayes prize for the best examination piece.
Louise is a speaker at the Association of Translation Companies annual conference in London.
A fitting tribute to our achievements comes in the form of Siobhan being awarded the Translator of the Year prize at the prestigious Association of Translation Companies Language Summit Awards, which are followed just weeks later by LKT’s second joint team training day of the year and more official celebrations to celebrate our milestone anniversary.
After a year of restrictions across the country, the team is finally able to meet up in person again in early December.
The team marks two of its longest-standing members, Jenny and Catherine, reaching 10 years at LKT – celebrating in style with afternoon tea in central Manchester.
LKTeam Days continue with a hybrid model, allowing the in-house team to meet up in person and freelance partners to join in the training sessions online.
