TransPerfect Milan Opens Today


MILAN, October 8, 2008 – TransPerfect, the world's largest privately-held provider of language and business services, today announced the opening of a new office in Milan, Italy. The new facility will provide a full range of language services to business professionals in Milan, many of whom are distinguished for their advanced global communication activities.

As the fourth-largest economy in Europe, Italy offers a robust international business hub with a rapidly growing need for the latest translation software and services. Milan itself is the financial, legal, and fashion center of Italy, with approximately 9.3 million inhabitants working and living in the metropolitan region. According to Liz Elting, Co-Founder and CEO, "Milan is an undisputed global leader in fashion, which is at least a $300 billion industry. It is notable for drawing upon creative, marketing, and production sources around the world. They are on the forefront of crossing language and cultural barriers. Our office in Milan positions us to facilitate their operation—as well as the global needs of leaders in all industries." 

Elting goes on to state, "Since becoming certified to EN 15038:2006 earlier this year, we've seen a significant spike in business from our Italy-based clients. Clearly, companies in Milan and other parts of the country put a premium on high-quality and timely translation services. With the opening of our new office, we look forward to providing additional support to our existing clients in the region, while also fostering the development of new relationships in this market."
