TransPerfect was founded on a simple business premise: that unmatched quality and attentive client service could be competitive differentiators in the language services industry. Today, as the world’s largest privately held provider of translation services, TransPerfect utilizes a rigorously tested network of industry-expert linguists and full-time quality managers to ensure that the work we deliver is second to none. TransPerfect offers multiple levels of service based on client needs, ranging from draft / summary translation up through certified translation, featuring our multi-step quality assurance process, all designed to meet the evolving needs of global businesses.
Throughout the company’s history, TransPerfect has shown an unmatched commitment to quality. As the first major language services provider to be certified to the ISO 9001 and ISO 17100 standards, TransPerfect is the undisputed industry pioneer in quality assurance. Our Medical Device Solutions division holds specialty certifications to ISO 13485 and ISO 14971.
While various professional groups and organizations have historically provided credentials for professional linguists, none of these addressed critical elements of linguist performance like subject-matter expertise and overall competency — so TransPerfect introduced the TransPerfect Linguist Certification (TLC) program. The TLC program was the first comprehensive system to assess linguist skill in the areas that matter most to clients.
While TransPerfect today is a diversified business solutions organization, our birth in 1992 was as a pure-play document translation service. Ever since, we’ve been the industry pioneer driving the level of quality and service increasingly higher. TransPerfect was the first major language services organization certified to both ISO 9001 and EN 15038 as well as the first to offer a subject-specific certification program to assess both linguistic competency and industry knowledge.
No other language services provider can offer the capabilities that TransPerfect does to meet your multilingual challenges:
For companies that face extremely high volumes of text, extremely fast turnaround requirements, or both, machine translation can potentially serve as a viable option. On its own, current machine translation technology can’t produce the same level of quality as a human translator. However, depending on time constraints, cost requirements, and end-use, the machine translation process can be customized with the ideal combination of terminology glossaries, translation memory technology, optical character recognition (OCR), and post-translation proofreading by human linguists.
Please contact us to learn more about our machine translation and to talk with our client service team to determine if machine translation is a potential solution for your needs.
TransPerfect utilizes leading computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools to facilitate reuse of previously translated content stored in translation memory (TM). TM helps organizations cut costs and timelines while improving overall translation consistency, and the benefits in these areas grow over time as TM assets grow and are augmented by tools including GlobalLink TM Server and GlobalLink Term Manager, which centralize TM assets and manage terminology glossaries, respectively.
TransPerfect’s GlobalLink translation management technology is a suite of modular applications designed specifically to alleviate manual project management burdens associated with the translation process. By streamlining workflows, giving stakeholders direct access to project status reports, managing review processes, and maintaining audit trails, GlobalLink simplifies the entire translation process, from submission to release. The end result is improved translation quality, expedited timelines, decreased workloads, and significant cost savings, which could potentially total in the millions of dollars.
