US language translation company CETRA is to generate 20 new jobs in Limerick as part of an IDA Ireland-supported investment.

CETRA Ireland staff will include management, administration, project managers and sales staff. The company will initially locate in the Limerick Institute of Technology Acceleration Centre.

The company will begin recruitment for initial positions immediately.

CETRA offers translation, localisation and interpretation services to the market research, legal and life science industries using a global network of professional linguists.

"We were attracted to Limerick primarily due to the graduate output of the University of Limerick and the ability to collaborate with the Localisation Research Centre in UL to develop a technology localisation offering," Dr Jiri Stejskal, president and CEO of CETRA explained.

“We’re excited about expanding our business into EMEA from our Limerick base," Stejskal said.
