Hyderabad : Canadian health informatics player Pulsus plans to add 2,000 jobs through expansion of health informatics regional language translation activities in its India facilities.

Pulsus healthcare and scientific information centres at the Chennai SEZ and in Gurugram in Haryana are already operational and employ 1,000 persons.

The objective is to expand the firm into a 3,500-employee outfit in India from the present 1,500 working out of the Technology Hub in Hyderabad and other two centers.

With the support and speedy approvals from state government and the Software Technology Parks of India, Pulsus expects to commercialise the facility in 12 months.

This move is part of Pulsus strategy to tap the growing importance for scientific content translation in Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil, Gujarati and Bengali.

Srinibabu Gedela, the Chief Executive Officer of Pulsus, said that a meeting has been held with Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh, who assured Pulsus that all possible support would be given to the plan.
