New York, June 17, 2020 — TransPerfect, the world’s largest provider of language and technology solutions for global business, today announced that it has been selected by Lynk to provide ongoing translation and interpretation services in fourteen languages to support its expert networking engagements.
Lynk is a market-leading platform that powers the knowledge economy. It connects people with time-sensitive and business-critical questions to a curated community of 630,000+ experts in more than 80 countries. Lynk’s requirements include hundreds of hours of over-the-phone interpretation each year to facilitate engagements between its clients and members of its expert network.
To address these language needs, Lynk licensed TransPerfect’s InterAct platform to enable interpreter booking and streamlined management of a high volume of calls requiring interpretation. Through a role-based platform, all users and interpreters can facilitate and manage interpretation assignments. TransPerfect InterAct gives Lynk 24/7/365 coverage worldwide, automated client and interpreter notifications, full calendar visibility, and customizable reporting that ensures they can conduct their business without the burdens of language barriers.
Marc Mouty, Strategic Relationship Lead at Lynk, commented, “As a global business, we require quick, efficient, and easy access to a large pool of qualified professional interpreters—sometimes on very short notice. TransPerfect’s InterAct technology provides a centralized platform to book, manage, and engage with their large pool of interpreters, which allows us to focus on growing our business.”
Phil Shawe, President and CEO of TransPerfect, remarked, “Lynk is taking its mission, connecting people with experts, worldwide. That requires partners with robust technology, and we’re pleased that Lynk has chosen TransPerfect to help them achieve their international business objectives.”
