Wolfestone is celebrating its 10-year anniversary milestone this Monday, 26th September. From its small, 2006 beginnings, it has grown into a multimillion pound international company with clients including the Welsh Government, Fifa and NHS. Collage of Wolfestone's 10 year history Co-Founders Roy Allkin and Anna Bastek comment: 'We'd like to say a big thank you to our staff, customers and suppliers for being a part of our 10-year journey. It's been fun, challenging and exciting to start a business from scratch and see it develop into something amazing.’ While Wolfestone initially focused on small certificate translations, over the last 10 years, it has broadened its service offerings to cover all aspects of translation, multilingual SEO, localisation, transcription, proofreading and interpreting. Wolfestone is now the largest translation company in Wales, the five fastest growing translation business in the UK and the 25th largest translation company in Northern Europe. In 2015, the sister company VoiceBox was launched which offers dedicated multilingual services to clients. Since Wolfestone started trading, it has won or been in the finals for over 30 business awards including the South Wales Business Awards, Wales Business Awards, Chwarae Teg Awards and the Swansea Bay Woman of the Year Awards. Bastek says: ‘While our focus is international, we are proud to have our headquarters in Swansea. So it was clear for us when we entered our 10th year in business that we wanted to give something back to the local community.’ Wolfestone threw themselves right into the deep end with a series of 10 events to raise £10,000 for their chosen charity, Tenovus Cancer Care. The events included the London marathon and the IronMan Triathlon, which Co-Founder Bastek completed last month in Sweden. For the less energetic in the team, the company held a Merry Berry style Bake-off, a Pancake-day and a Lord Sugar Apprentice-style challenge to raise money for Tenovus. Co-Founder Bastek and Allkin say: 'We're glad that all the staff has been so eager to give back to the community. It's important to us and we have already made a huge difference to many people.’ Looking to the future, Bastek says: ‘We will keep investing time and energy in our staff and our technology and we will continue to offer a top-end service to our customers and be at the forefront of the translation industry.’ But first its time to celebrate with staff, customers and suppliers at a big gala dinner to benefit Tenovus Cancer Care on 1st October at the Marriot Hotel in Swansea. ‘We're looking forward to our 10-year party and fundraising for Tenovus, ‘says Roy Allkin, ‘and it would be great to see you there on 1st October in Swansea!’
