In 2003, Akorbia CEO, Claudia Mirza, evaluated the market and realized there was a need for linguistic services that were backed by a solid business infrastructure and a customer-driven approach. So, she launched a translation business that leveraged technology and developed business processes that simplified the system, reduced costs and increased speed-to-market. That same year, Southwest Airlines, Aetna Insurance and 3M became clients and proved that Mirza's vision had merit.
Akorbi has evolved from a home-based translation business to a company that provides multilingual business solutions. Today, the company has 930 employees, including single mothers, veterans and retirees among many others. And, some of the most prestigious organizations in the world, including the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, leading health insurance companies, and the largest provider of Internet services worldwide, are among Akorbi's many clients.
