Limerick, 5 January 2012 – The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD today announced that CETRA, the US headquartered language translation company, is establishing its European Service Centre in Limerick with the support of Government through IDA Ireland.

CETRA plans to create 20 jobs in Limerick to better serve their existing European clients and further grow its EMEA client base.  CETRA Ireland staff will include management, administration, project managers and sales staff. The company will initially locate in the Limerick Institute of Technology Acceleration Centre.   The company will begin recruitment for initial positions immediately.

CETRA offers translation, localisation and interpretation services to the market research, legal, and life science industries using a global network of professional linguists. CETRA’s team of multilingual project managers brings a wealth of diverse, worldwide experience to each request. CETRA adds value through prompt and responsive assistance, insightful cultural consulting, and a proactive, partnering approach.

Making today’s announcement Minister Bruton said:

“Today’s announcement is great news for Limerick and for Ireland. This is a high-growth international company which has chosen to locate in Ireland with the creation of jobs due to the graduate output of one of our universities. With the right policies we can replicate this announcement across the country over the coming years. I am determined to achieve the high levels of jobs growth we so badly need, and that is why in January with the Action Plan for Jobs we will start implementing radical reform across the economy to help get people back to work”.

“We were attracted to Limerick primarily due to the graduate output of the University of Limerick and the ability to collaborate with the Localisation Research Centre in UL to develop a technology localisation offering. We’re excited about expanding our business into EMEA from our Limerick base”, said Dr. Jiri Stejskal, President and CEO of CETRA.

Commenting on the announcement IDA Ireland CEO Barry O’Leary said “CETRA is a welcome addition to the growing cluster of early growth multinational business services companies which have recently established international operations in Ireland.”
