inWhatLanguage Receives Funding From Enhanced Community Development to Accelerate Growth of Translation and Localization Services
Salt Lake City – February 14, 2018 – inWhatLanguage, a leading localization and translation technology provider, has closed a $1.25 million business investment from Enhanced Community Development (ECD), a subsidiary of Enhanced Capital, to provide critical financial resources to be used for expansion of jobs, technology, customer acquisition, and greater language service offerings.
Headquartered in South Salt Lake, Utah, inWhatLanguage qualified for the specialized funding as a business located in a low-income community. The funding was facilitated by the federal New Markets Tax Credit program, which is designed to encourage private capital investment in economic impactful businesses or projects located in underserved areas.
The acquired capital will be used to create new jobs within the company, as well as advance the propriety UNIFY cloud-based translation management technology capabilities to meet the needs of inWhatLanguage’s growing enterprise client base. The company has doubled the volume of translation projects delivered and increased the languages offered to more than 200 within the past year.
“We’re very eager to take advantage of the opportunities this capital infusion provides our company, our clients and our future business partners,” said Cody Broderick, CEO and founder of inWhatLanguage. “We are a mission-driven company and our growth fuels how we help unify communities and help businesses reach their global potential. With our great partner, Enhanced Capital, we’re able to rapidly expand our business and increase our impact around the world.”

This investment is a great example of how public-private partnership programs like the New Markets Tax Credit Program can have a positive impact on growth-oriented businesses located in low-income areas.”
