New York City, NY – KUDO Inc., the leading Language-as-a-Service platform for online meetings, has announced new partnerships to expand its reach in Europe.
KUDO’s ever-growing network of global partners now includes Enterkon, Kyiv Language Services, and Cosmos Translation & Events. The new partnerships usher KUDO’s multilingual technology into a world of rich cultural and linguistic heritage.
“It has been great to work with KLS, Cosmos and Enterkon last month, getting them on board and ready to offer KUDO to their customers”, says Michelle Cartín-Storey, Global Channel Manager at KUDO. “With KUDO, these companies will be better suited to ensure operational excellence in the delivery of interpretation services, onsite, online or in a hybrid fashion”.
Founded in İstanbul in 1987 by a group of conference interpreters, Enterkon Interpreters is the leading professional language service provider of Turkey. The company works with approximately 100 interpreters in various languages every year. Over the years, Enterkon has acted rapidly to adapt to changing conditions in the interpretation market. It is now a solution partner and a consultant to many clients, providing them with a one-stop-shop for interpretation and equipment needs, servicing a wide variety of projects ranging from company board meetings to multilingual conferences and remote events.
“Our recent partnership with KUDO marks an important first step in re-designing and adapting our business model to the rapidly changing requirements of our clients”, says Hande Güner, Board Member of Enterkon Interpreters.
The key to Enterkon’s success lies in its ability to rapidly adapt to changing conditions in the interpretation market. They provide services for a diverse range of projects and clients, and with the KUDO platform, they will be able to offer their clients high-quality interpretation services remotely. The partnership with KUDO will also help them reach out to a more global client base.

We are excited to join this great enterprise” she added.
