QA and localisation firm Partnertrans is to shut down its Brighton office in favour of two new divisions in Montreal and the US, the company has confirmed.
Iris Ludolf, co-founder of the German headquartered outfit, said the company has been gradually reducing its UK workforce by not replacing workers who have left.
"We are already working closely with a number of clients in the US and Canada, and now want to bring our services closer to them to support the many development centres across North America even more effectively," Ludolf said in a statement sent to GamesIndustry.biz
It is not known how many UK jobs will be affected by the move.
