Voice and Language software firm to create over 40 jobs

Nuance Communications has announced that it intends to set up its international headquarters in Dublin. The voice and language solutions provider will create over 40 positions in sales, finance and human resources. This is seen as another important boost to the ailing Irish economy.

The company already employs over 10,000 people worldwide and its European customers include Europe Audi, Barclays, BMW, BT, Deutche Bank, The Office of the Irish Revenue Commissioners and Vodafone. Nuance Communications also maintains an imaging business with regional ties to manufacturers such as Canon, HP and Xerox.

Senior vice president and general manager of Nuance EMEA Neil Weston said: "Dublin provides Nuance with an excellent foundation for building on our deep experience and resources in Europe and supporting customers and partners across the region. We are pleased to be able to have an extensive, talented workforce in the region and to join the many premier, multinational technology companies that call Ireland home."

Ireland’s Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said that it was part of the Government's plan for jobs and growth to target sectors where Ireland had particular strengths and to build clusters of companies in those areas. In recent years ICT has been a major success story, and he believed that the challenge was to leverage major international companies already in operation here to attract further investment.
