The multilingual translation service celebrated its expansion to accommodate its growing staff on Sept. 20. Vigdis Eriksen, founder and chief executive officer, joined Lorraine Lowe, membership coordinator with the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, and Josh Levin, director of Capital Budget and Economic Development with the Brooklyn Borough President’s office, to cut the cord.

Eriksen opened its doors 32 years ago and has since grown to become one of North America’s top language services providers.

“Eriksen Translations is more than a language services provider,” said Lowe. “They are an example of what it means to be a global and community advocate for human and immigrant rights and a champion for diversity and inclusion in the public and private sectors.”

“We applaud New York City for supporting the city’s non-English-speaking communities, and my team is grateful for the opportunities we have been given to contribute to these efforts,” said Eriksen. “Our expanded headquarters, along with recent key hires, reaffirm our commitment to serving our local communities. This includes working with local nonprofits and government agencies that advocate for immigrant rights and promote diversity.”

Eriksen Translations Inc. [50 Court St. at Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights, (718) 802–9010].
