On Wednesday 18 October 2017 we were honoured to host Kevin Hollinrake MP in our London office.

Mr Hollinrake was briefed by the Codex management team on the history of the business, it’s current vital statistics, the Codex service offering, our clients and an analysis of our geographical and sector activities.

Following the briefing, Rupert Foster the Codex MD introduced Mr Hollinrake to the team, he spoke to several employees from Europe and then addressed the whole office.

Mr Hollinrake’s speech focused on concerns raised by the team on the impact of Brexit, his thoughts on the future of UK businesses trading with Europe and the rest of the world and he concluded by saying:….”how encouraging it was to visit Codex, a company founded in Yorkshire, now head quartered in London, staffed with international employees and growing its customer base in UK, Europe and beyond”.

Many thanks for coming Kevin, we will remain in touch.

We are delighted welcome a host of new starters to our business this month, in keeping with our industry sector our new recruits have come from Ireland, Poland, Italy, Spain and Scotland.
George Mackenzie Smith our new sales executive has taken a particularly convoluted route from Perthshire! He and his Kilted and Klueless team have driven 16,000 kilometres to Ulan Ude (Mongolia) in a particularly battered Vauxhall Agila.

Along the way they have raised a cool £8,675.00 for Maggie’s Centres a charity that offers practical and emotional support to people affected by cancer.

In January 2017, Codex was successfully recertified to ISO 9001: 2015 on Quality Management Systems, one of the key standards for the language services sector.

Moving on from our previous certification ISO 9001: 2008, Codex has retained its full scope of certification on language services including translation, website and software localisation, multilingual desktop publishing and interpreting. Our Quality Management System also incorporates ISO 17100 on Translation Services (previously BS EN 15038) and Codex remains compliant to its best practices.

Commenting on the achievement Ksenia Ivanova Production and Quality Manager at Codex Global, said:

“…our business is wholeheartedly committed to the quality of all the services we provide for our clients, taking the recertification to the latest version of the standard was vital to ensure sector expertise. The transition period lasted five months, including gap analysis, implementation and audit, concluding with a seamless implementation which was welcomed by the team and the management. Many thanks to the whole team.”

David’s route took in France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India and Nepal. His stories of cultural diversity, wealth, poverty and hospitality are extraordinary.

Commenting on his return Rupert Foster our MD said: “It is tremendous to have David back, we missed him in the office but there is no doubt that the adventure has been a tremendous experience for him. It is good timing as Codex has recently launched its proactive tech division which David will be responsible for leading!”

Codex Global takes the responsibility for the development of young people very seriously. Each year we select a school leaver to join the team for a week to gain vital real-life experience of the work place. This year we were joined by Monty Merchie, Monty an A level student at Ripon Grammar in North Yorkshire is an accomplished linguist, scientist, musician and sports man.

We created a week-long package during which Monty worked in the production, sales and vendor management departments. The experience was beneficial for both Codex and Monty and we heard this week that he has started to investigate studying Arabic and international studies at University and is setting his sights on a career at The Foreign Office.

Good luck Monty please stay in touch. We look forward to welcoming a new student next year..
