Translit has come a long way in a short time. Alex Chernenko established the Limerick-based company, which also has offices in Cork city, as a one-man operation in 2009.

Since then, it has expanded well beyond what he originally envisaged and Alex is now looking to franchise his business model to grow the company further.

A recent finalist in the Best Emerging/Start-up Business category at the Limerick Chamber Regional Business Awards, Translit provides certified translation and interpretation services. The company has a database of more than 500 translators and interpreters covering more than 70 languages.

More recently, it has moved into a number of related work areas such as localisation and even further afield into facilitating company formations, and providing business consultancy services and tax advice.

Alex, who is proficient in English, Ukrainian, Russian and Romanian, moved to Ireland from the Ukraine in 2003. After getting a degree in computer engineering from the University of Limerick, he began to freelance as a translator while also working in IT. Read more…
