"With this release we are providing the international M&A community with the ability to give the widest possible pool of potential buyers access to critical information in the due diligence process."

TransPerfect VP of Legal Technology, Jordan Ellington added, "A US-based seller of a business will now have the capacity to simultaneously offer potential buyers an electronic document sharing environment that they can utilize fully--in over 50 global markets. Put simply, users of Deal Interactive 7.0g will be able to interact with potential buyers in Tokyo, Frankfurt, and Paris concurrently, with all stakeholders accessing a user interface in their own language.
