Indianapolis: Language Training Center (LTC), a full service language training provider, announced plans today to expand its operations in Indianapolis, creating up to 26 new jobs by 2017. The Indianapolis-headquartered company, which also has an office in Shanghai, China, will invest $1.5 million to renovate and expand its existing facility by 3,500 square feet. Providing language training, translation, interpreting, cross cultural training and language assessment services, the expansion will allow the company to support new clients and expand its services.
LTC has already begun hiring for the new positions and will continue to hire American Sign Language interpreting specialists, linguists, office managers and customer service representatives throughout the year. Interested applicants can apply at www.languagetrainingcenter.com
Established in 1993, LTC serves companies’ globalization needs through its training, translation and interpreting services, which are offered in more than 120 languages. The company serves local school districts, hospitals, courts, fire departments and businesses across Indiana and around the globe, including Eli Lilly and Company, Roche Diagnostics, National Collegiate Athletic Association, IndyCar and World Wrestling Entertainment. LTC was named as a 2011 Indiana Company to Watch and has been recognized on the Inc. 5000 list for the past two years.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Language Training Center up to $165,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $60,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis supports the project at the request of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.
