Dear native speakers!

Please help me understand whether I need an article and why.

"Companies I have worked with:
  • Wolfestone, translation agency (Swansea, UK)
  • [...]"
Do I have to place an article before "translation agency"? I feel that if it were in a sentence, I would need an article, but in a list like that (it's from my CV) I'd better omit it. Is this feeling right or wrong? Are there any rules for such situations?

Thanks in advance!

    If "translation agency" is part of the agency's name, I would write it "Wolfestone Translation Agency." If not, I'd probably write it "Wolfestore (translation agency), Swansea..."
