Argo Translation Acquires ICD Translation to Help More Businesses Break the Language Barrier

A combined customer service powerhouse propels the translation company's mission to create greater understanding in every language.


GLENVIEW, Ill., May 27, 2022  - Argo Translation, a 28-year-old language services firm based in Chicago, announced today it is closing on the acquisition of ICDTranslation, a Milwaukee-based translation company.

By acquiring ICDTranslation, Argo Translation will serve a greater market by doubling its employee base, adding deep expertise, and bolstering customer service capabilities. This acquisition is part of the Company's strategic growth plan that supports additional service offerings to a broader customer base.

"Understanding is at the heart of everything we do," said Peter Argondizzo, who founded Argo Translation with Jackie Lucarelli in 1995. "We've always respected ICD Translation as a company, specifically for its commitment to customer service, which aligns perfectly with our team. We are confident that we'll provide our customers with the best possible outcomes through this acquisition, and we couldn't be more excited about it."

Dany Olier, President & Cofounder of ICDTranslation, agrees. "The combination of our technologies, resources, and innovations will be a huge asset for everyone involved and allow us to strengthen and expand the impact of superior language services. We can't wait to join the team at Argo Translation." 

Catherine Deschamps-Potter, Vice President & Co-founder of ICDTranslation, also weighed in on the acquisition. "It has been a pleasure working with so many great companies over the years. We know Argo Translation will take great care of our customers."

Business will continue out of Argo Translation's Glenview, Illinois headquarters in the metro-Chicago area. ICDTranslation co-founders Dany Olier and Catherine Deschamps-Potter will consult during the transition. The entire ICD team will continue their work with Argo Translation.
