FINALIST 2013 Atlas Translations Ltd


St Albans Company Finalists in two categories for FSB Hertfordshire Business Awards 2013.

Atlas Translations are thrilled to be finalists in these awards – for St Albans Business of the Year, and for Real-Life Entrepreneur (Director and founder of the business, Clare Suttie).

Although established in 1991, in a small room over a bank, opposite a sex shop and a pub called the White Swan, Atlas only made the move to St Albans in March 2012 – now in their premises on Upper Dagnall Street, and still opposite a pub called the White Swan!
Manager Anna Davies says: “We haven’t regretted our move, and have been amazed at the number and diversity of businesses in the area – what a thriving and welcoming business community. The icing on the cake is to be a finalist for St Albans Business of the Year, a real honour.”

Director Clare Suttie adds: “It’s very exciting to be a finalist in the Real-Life Entrepreneur category! I have been running a profitable, successful and well-regarded business for more than 20 years. I still love what I do with a passion, and this is unusual for many people heading off to work on a Monday morning.”
