TransPerfect History

TransPerfect History

TransPerfect co-founders Phil Shawe and Liz Elting met at New York University Stern School of Business in 1991. They felt there was a need for a service-minded enterprise that could deliver complex projects quickly and accurately. In 1992, they founded TransPerfect to fill that gap. Their mission: to provide the highest quality language services to leading businesses worldwide. With no external financing, TransPerfect grew from its beginnings as a two-person company operating out of a dorm room into one of the world's most reputable language and business services companies.

Over the years, TransPerfect and its flagship GlobalLink technology suite has won numerous awards, and has been recognized on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing companies. The company is also recognized for developing the industry standard for linguist certification, the TransPerfect Linguist Certification (TLC) program, which tests linguists for language proficiency and subject-area specialization.

In 2018, Phil Shawe completed a historic buyout of his co-founder—ushering the company into a new era with renewed focus on expansion and innovation. The sale ensured the continuation of TransPerfect’s long history profitable growth, job creation, expansion of the company’s global footprint, and a pursuit of strategic mergers and acquisitions—all with the overarching purpose of better serving the international business requirements of its prestigious and ever-growing client base.

Today, TransPerfect has over 5,000 full-time employees, a network of over 5,000 certified linguists and subject-area specialists, and over 90 offices in cities around the globe, making it the world’s largest privately held language services provider.
