Introducing the new membership initiative from Elia for language service companies and independent language professionals to come together with the ultimate goal of better serving end clients and the industry. The aim is to provide a forum to connect and interact between Together events and establish best practice for long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships.
Elia Engage complements the role that national associations play in supporting the language industry locally, opening additional doors for Elia Engage Members to escalate their business.
Founding Members who signed up as early adopters were given the opportunity to vote on the name that they feel best symbolises the initiative’s goals and aims. The result is Elia Engage, previously known as Elia Connect.
For more information about Elia Engage, please email Elia Association.
