Iverson Acquires Wordnet

CHICAGO Translation and technical-writing firm Iverson Language Associates has acquired Wordnet, a document-translation company located outside of Boston.

Wordnet is a privately owned concern with sales of less than $1 million. Terms of the purchase were not disclosed.

The majority of Wordnet’s customer base is located on the East Coast, allowing Iverson Language Associates to increase its market share in that region, said president Steve Iverson. His company, which is based in Milwaukee, also has offices in Portland, Ore., and Mukilteo, Wash.

Iverson Language Associates provides translation/localization, interpretation, technical-writing and multimedia-production services for manufacturing, finance, travel, advertising, high-tech, healthcare, education and other industries.
