Datawords Selects Montréal to Continue its Blend of Technology and Multiculturalism

Founded 20 years ago, Datawords enables companies to roll out their digital strategy internationally through its technological know-how, multicultural expertise and mastery of the digital ecosystem. The group offers a comprehensive range of multicultural production services (linguistic consulting, video production, chatbots, localization and deployment of omnichannel content, etc.).

 

Cultural diversity forms the DNA of this French group launched in 2000 in Paris by founders from a wide array of nationalities, cultures and religions. The group has 14 offices on 3 continents and currently employs around 800 people representing 50 nationalities and more than 60 languages.

 

Encouraged by the success of its New York office over the past 5 years, Datawords has decided to strengthen and broaden the group's presence in North America with the opening of a new subsidiary in Canada. The city of Montreal was a natural fit given its dynamism at the forefront of technological innovation and its wealth of young international talent educated in excellent local universities.

 

This new branch, led by Maxime Mader, will proceed to strengthen its teams through new recruitments and engage with the local ecosystem, thus supporting the group's strong growth in Canadian and American markets.

 

Datawords already supports major Canadian brands such as BRP and Maison Birks, as well as many local subsidiaries of international groups notably Colgate, L'Oréal or Clarins.

 

The Datawords Group received support from Investissement Québec for the opening of this office.

 

"We are delighted to operate from Montreal, a cosmopolitan city, full of potential, a city which reflects our own philosophy. Furthermore, this location is a strategic choice for our group since this new office will spearhead the pursuit of our development in North America," said Maxime Mader, Project Director at Datawords Canada.

 

"It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome the arrival of Datawords in Montreal, as a testament to the strength of Montreal's tech ecosystem. This move will further accelerate Quebec’s technological revolution, in addition to creating highly qualified jobs. We are proud to have helped convince this key player of choosing Montreal and to have accompanied Datawords’ investment here," Hubert Bolduc, President of Investissement Québec International, concluded.
