Ian Miller MBE Appointed Chairman of Today Translations and Business Services.
LONDON - Today Translations, the company that has been in the headlines across the globe with its global search for emoji translators, has appointed a new Chairman. Today Translations & Business Services is a London-headquartered language and localisation services company that has achieved international coverage through its recent revelation that emojis mean different things in different countries. It announced today that it has appointed Ian Miller MBE as the company’s Chairman.

He has led businesses across Europe, the United States and Asia Pacific and driven exceptional performance and growth. He has a particular expertise in M&A strategy, execution and integration.
Speaking about his new role, Ian Miller said: “Recent events in Europe show the importance of understanding the difference between markets. Companies on both sides of the Atlantic, and further afield, are looking at new areas of expansion and new relationships. It’s not just about language, though it’s essential to get that right. It’s about understanding the culture and shaping an approach to the individual needs of each market.”
“That’s why Today Translations aim to understand the cultural nuance of everything from business procedures to emoji meaning. Today Translations can help clients mitigate the risks and enhance the chances of success. These changing times are a massive opportunity for all concerned and the I hope my appointment will ensure that the company can capitalise on this opportunity.”

That has brought tremendous growth in the last few years, and the next steps in the development programme are going to be exciting. I’m looking forward to being part of the team and the story.”
