Fast Track 100

Games based on Hollywood blockbusters need to be tested, translated and marketed to ensure international sales. These services are increasingly being outsourced to companies like Babel, which was founded in 1999. Babel also makes games compatible on rival formats such as X-box and Sony Playstation. Mobile gaming is one of the largest growth areas in the industry at present, and Babel tests all the games you can play on a Vodafone handset. Its sales have grown 74% a year from an annualised £689,000 in 2000 to £3.6m in 2003.
