TransPerfect Translations Selected As Preferred Provider For The National Restaurant Association Education Foundation

Yahoo! Finance - October 13, 2005

TransPerfect Translations, one of the world's largest providers of international communications services, has been selected by the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation (NRAEF) to produce translations of multicultural training tools. These translations will impact the food, beverage, and food service industries throughout the nation, positioning TransPerfect as the leader in this far-reaching field.

"We are thrilled to team with TransPerfect for the translation of our ServSafe® and ServSafe Alcohol TM Examinations," said Mary M. Adolf, President and COO of The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation. "The NRAEF focuses on recruitment, retention, and risk management in the restaurant and food service industry, and the need for multicultural training tools in these areas continues to grow at a very fast pace. TransPerfect helps the NRAEF ensure that all of these training materials are accurate and up–to–date with their thorough and cutting-edge translation practices."

With over 12.2 million employees, the restaurant and food service industry is the second largest employer in the US. Non-native English speakers make up a fast growing segment of this population. These individuals come from many different cultures where practices and traditions regarding food handling and food storage vary significantly. Ensuring that these individuals have clear, accessible information—in their first language—about food service standards and practices in the US will have a major impact on all consumers.

Liz Elting, President and CEO of TransPerfect, notes that "The restaurant industry is one of the nation's largest employers of non-native English speakers. By localizing safety examinations for individuals who are not fluent in English, the NRAEF is performing a critically important service and a heightened level of protection for consumers throughout the US. We applaud the NRAEF for taking this step and are honored to be working with them."
