Local Concept Moves Offices

Por | news | Sem comentários

Local Concept US Headquarters

Local Concept has finished the remodel of its new offices located in Old Town, San Diego to better fit the companies changing needs. Settled by Spaniards in 1769, San Diego is the site of the first permanent Spanish settlement in California and Old Town San Diego is considered the birthplace of California.

President Michael R. Cárdenas gives his strategy behind the move: “We looked at several office sites and decided on Old Town because it is particularly important to me, having been born in Spain, to have an office in an area which was the first West Coast settlement of the Spaniards.”

Local Concept engaged the services of La Jolla-based design firm, AGK Design Studio, to help design the space. Cárdenas adds, “The offices are not only employee friendly, but pet friendly, too. We have built a space for employees to keep their dogs or cats. We have pet friendly flooring and even have bedrooms where they can sleep. Lastly, each Local Concept office has an animal mascot. The San Diego office has Lulu, the friendly office cat.”

Please make note of our new address:

3920 Conde Street
San Diego, CA 92110

ISO 9001:2008

Local Concept has recently received ISO 9001:2008 certification as a continued strategy to deliver only the best quality of localization and translation services. Michael Cardenás, CEO of Local Concept, says “You can never have enough layers of quality control in the localization and translation industry. For the last 30 years, we have followed a quality assurance measure where we routinely monitor the quality of our translators by an independent review team. Our ISO certification provides an additional level of quality control by ensuring all processes are carried out on all projects.”

With many companies now requiring ISO certification to alleviate translation quality issues, Local Concept’s continued dedication to both quality and the customer experience resulted in a streamlined audit and ISO certification approval. Very few companies applying for ISO certification pass on their initial audit. Local Concept is proud to be one of the few that did just that.

Natasha Notaro, Client Services Manager, spearheaded this effort and noted, “This was a great collective effort put forth by the entire team to ensure that we are implementing and adhering to processes that safeguard the continual success of our company as well as our clients. Our certification shows our commitment to providing quality service and quality product to our clients every time.”

For over 30 years, Local Concept’s mission is dedicated to quality of services, products, and processes. Over 80 specialists and more than 3,000 contractors help clients internationally introduce their products and businesses into diverse markets.

Local Concept Rebrands as Part of Its 30-Year Anniversary

It’s been 30 years since Local Concept’s President, Michael Cardenas, crossed the border from San Diego to Tijuana, Mexico in search of his new brand. All he had washis company name ‘Multilingual Translations’. He asked the printing house to show him options for a logo before choosing a circle with the letters “MLT” and another circle around it. Now three decades later, over ten advertising and marketing agencies have worked on the corporate branding strategy for what has evolved now into Local Concept.
