ICS Newsletter – August 2015

The start of a new month means it’s also time for another ICS Company Newsletter! Here is what has been developing in and around the company over the last four weeks.

 

New editorial work

ICS has teamed up with two new clients heading into August, with the sports team producing written content for both of them. One contract also involves ICS designing banners for their website to advertise their main sports odds and offers.

 

International Contracts

We also secured two new international contracts in July, the first involving the translation of casino articles into eight languages while the other involves providing SEO-rich text for a newly launched Italian sports betting website.

 

New Staff

In July, we extended our international teams by employing a native Chinese language speaker as well as two Farsi translators.

Emily Fengchen will help us develop and promote ICS in China and associated markets and has translated the company websites into Taiwanese and Teochew to help with this.

Meanwhile, Simin Karimian and Samaneh Igder have started work on the Farsi translation of a major project and have also provided us with site translations for the company site. We are hoping to secure more business in Iran over the forthcoming months.

Speaking of site translations, we have also translated our company portals into Montenegrin, which is the 49th language in which ICS will now operate as we look to target the Balkan states strongly in the second half of 2015.

In ICS-digital news, Zoe Blogg has [re]joined the company full-time and will be helping out with digital PR campaigns across many clients.

 

The new football season is here!

To some people it might not seem more than a couple of weeks since the football action finished but the new season began in earnest on Sunday 2 August.

The Community Shield took place at Wembley between Chelsea and Arsenal, and the Premier League kicks off next weekend.

Again, we will be providing off-tube studio commentary for a number of different clients and in 15 different languages.

Our European football radio show, Football Live, also returns on the opening day of the season, with shows on Saturday and Sunday afternoons throughout the campaign.

 

Veteran bags shock win!

The recent ICS Foot Golf event produced a big turn up for the books as 300-1 shot Nick ‘Bomber’ Harris scored a big win for all the veterans out there!

Harris, who has been seeking footballing glory for some years now, pulled off a shock victory thanks to a hole-in-one play-off success over Blackpool’s finest Bobbie Jackson.

 

New Baby!

We’d like to extend an ICS Media Group CONGRATULATIONS to Charlotte and Kyle on the arrival of their daughter Isabella Grace who was born on Friday 17th July. Mother and baby are doing just fine and we (well the girls of the office) are eagerly anticipating a visit in the not too distant future!

See you next month!
