XTM International announces a growth equity investment from K1

LONDON, February 11, 2021 — XTM International (“XTM”), a leading provider of translation management software to global blue-chip clients, today announced a growth equity investment from K1 Investment Management, LLC (“K1”), a leading investment firm focusing on high-growth enterprise software companies. The existing management team will retain a significant equity interest in the company and continue to lead the business.

Founded in 2002 by Bob Willans and Andrzej Zydroń, the XTM platform is a mission-critical system for global enterprises, employing AI to automate translation processes that increasingly leverage machine translation alongside skilled human translators. The business has been bootstrapped to date, but now brings on an investor with a strong SaaS pedigree to drive accelerated growth and scale its international presence.

“We chose to partner with K1 because they will deliver the resources and expertise needed to take the company to its next level of development,” said Bob Willans, CEO of XTM. “The partnership will enable us to scale up our operations and accelerate the delivery of new features in XTM, ensuring improved returns and success for our users. I am extremely proud of the team at XTM who have built the leading enterprise translation management platform on the market today, and believe this is wonderful news for our customers, our team, and the future of XTM.”

XTM enables its customers to overcome the increasingly complex problem of localization by centralizing and automating disparate processes, resulting in a cost-efficient, controllable, and scalable content supply chain. Enterprises such as Expedia, Sony, Volvo, and RICOH trust XTM to solve their localization needs.

The strategic investment from K1 marks another significant milestone along XTM’s journey and will help fuel continued growth and innovation.

“The translation management market is an evolving and rapidly growing space and XTM is a leader with impressive growth,” said Taylor Beaupain, Managing Partner at K1. “We are excited to partner with Bob, Andy and the XTM team to accelerate investments in AI and innovation to deliver the best-in-class translation management solution to our customers.”
