Straker Software which was set up in 1999 specialises in helping companies build multilingual websites. They are a truly international company with four bases in three continents. I also see from their blog and recent news that they certainly get about having been in as varied places as Atlanta, Berlin, Sydney and California in the last couple of months. They have also recently appointed a business development manager for the Asia Pacific region and have opened an office in San Francisco.
