Partnertrans opens office in Austin

Partnertrans, the expert global games localization provider, today announced the opening of its second North American office. Located in Austin, Texas, it’s the first in the United States.

"I am very happy to announce that our office in Austin is now open and operational," said Partnertrans co-founder, Iris Ludolf, "Picking Austin as the location for our first US office was definitely the right choice, not only from a business point of view. The sunshine warms the heart and the Austinites are the friendliest group of people I have ever met. :)"

She continues, "The timing could not be better either: GDC Online will be held in Austin next week. So stop by booth 721 and find out more about us. You can also use the time to charge your mobile device while finding out more about the services we offer!"

Austin represents the second new location for Partnertrans in North America after the company opened an office in Montreal earlier this year.
