US software firm chooses Dublin for European HQ

21 Oct 2009

US software company Sajan is to set up its European headquarters in Dublin, creating an undisclosed number of jobs.

Sajan specialises in on-demand translation technology and services, which are dedicated to advancing cloud-based translation technologies. The announcement highlights Sajan’s deep commitment to next-generation software and global market leadership, the company stated.

Sajan worked closely with the Irish Government to open the Sajan Software offices, including active support from IDA Ireland.

“Ireland’s reputation as a business-friendly country with deep roots in linguistics and translation fits well with Sajan Software’s overall business strategy, and the location also affords more immediate access to European customers,” it said.

Commenting on the announcement, Barry O’Leary, IDA CEO, said: “The establishment by Sajan of a headquarter operation of this nature demonstrates the strength of Ireland’s reputation as a location for software investments, linguistics and translation. Sajan Software Ltd. is to play a strategic role in Sajan’s overall operation and Ireland will be a vital element in this strategic role.”

Sajan’s expansion into Europe builds on its recent move into India. In December 2008, the company opened an office dedicated to software research, development, quality assurance and operations in New Delhi.
