Foresight makes GBP3m investment in DA Languages

Foresight Group (Foresight) has made a GBP3 million investment into Altrincham-based, DA Languages Limited (DAL).

DA Languages is a fast-growing interpreting and translation services business with a network of thousands of vetted professional linguists, who speak more than 450 languages, from Polish to Abkhaz and Zulu and complete thousands of interpreting and translation jobs each month. The Company offers three core services, face-to-face interpreting, telephone interpreting and written translation services to corporates, charities, NHS Trusts and City Councils.
The Company was founded in 2007 by Actar Arya, when she recognised a gap for high quality and reliable interpretation services after her husband had witnessed an interpreter making an error in court.
Foresight’s investment will build on DAL’s rapid growth, and will be used to further expand and professionalise the Company as it continues to grow. Alongside the investment, Foresight has introduced a new Finance Director, Christina Tamblyn who was formerly FD of Ascribe, a healthcare software business.
Claire Alvarez, Senior Investment Manager, Foresight, says: “DA Languages is a rapidly growing, successful business, whose services support and enable the increasingly multicultural and diverse society here in the UK. With an already strong market position, we are looking forward to helping DAL further diversify into the private sector translation market. We are confident that the Company will continue to go from strength to strength.”
Actar Arya, Founder and Managing Director, DA Languages, says: “I have loved setting up DAL, providing useful services to those who need them. The company has grown rapidly and I am excited to bring further support on board to continue the business’s expansion plans.”
