About Us

At TransPerfect Language and Cultural Training we believe that the only way to deploy highly qualitative solutions is to extend our commitment to excellence across all areas of our operations. We employ only those individuals who share our values in providing the highest level of client service and our willingness to continually support institutions and businesses with both enthusiasm and skill. Our goal to provide the most effective language & cross-cultural services in a timely, cost-efficient manner defines our operations and our partnership growth strategy.

Our Philosophy

The TransPerfect’s approach allows the participants to not only improve their linguistic skills but also to understand and react to implicit messages. Moreover, we help participants adjust speech and writing to their audience by acquiring a good command of their “business” language and expected skills. Going beyond the complexity of foreign language is key when it comes to reaching goals and becoming more pro-active in business situations. Based on the need analysis, the skill assessment, and the client's objectives, we may emphasize on one or more of the following elements during our courses.

OUR OFFERING

TransPerfect Language and Cultural Training offers training for companies and organizations, as well as assessment solutions. We develop individual and group courses to be delivered in various formats; chosen learning method is based on the principle of blended learning; providing face-to-face and online teaching and support. We believe indeed that a combination of learning elements will be dynamic, lively, modern, rewarding and therefore highly motivated for our learners.  We strongly believe that each participant is the owner of his or her learning and development process.

YOUR industry

Our programs are designed for professionals who need to develop their language and communication skills in various languages. TransPerfect Language Training programs can address the needs of anyone within an organization who is expected to communicate with clients or other employees successfully in any language. We take into account the actual training needs in every case and we develop solutions that satisfy language specific requirements and terminology in most of the industries through customized glossaries inserted into the language program. We also adapt our curricula accordingly, in order to assure maximum return of investment for our clients.

Our blended solution is supported by the following pedagogical tools.

Our approach is centered around the integration of students’ learning styles and cultural preferences when learning. The comparative intercultural technique is a pre-requisite in the student’s learning motivation.

PRIVATE VS. GROUP TRAINING

A customized private program has the advantage that the training can be fully geared to your personal learning goals. You have the trainer’s full attention and the lessons are organized to fit in with your schedule. The lesson schedule also remains flexible. Training sessions with one or more colleagues, on the other hand, offer the advantage that you can practice with other students in a realistic setting. Group training can also be interesting from a cost point of view. In addition, we can offer courses through virtual classes. That can come in very handy when you simply do not know in advance when you will have time for a training session.

VIRTUAL TRAINING

Location, irregular schedules and the nature of modern work sometimes make face-to-face courses not suitable for language training. This is why we propose virtual courses, in individual or group format, where our teachers meet online with the learners to provide them with high level training. Our virtual courses are offered online in a platform that is accessible from any location and is device independent (accessible in any OS system and mobile platform environment –MacOS, Windows, iOS and Android), and easy to use. Courses can be recorded and made available to all participants for review, including those who might not have managed to attend in real time. Virtual courses are be complemented with online exercises, study material, educational videos posted on the same platform.

PLANNING AND LOCATION

Training can be organized wherever you wish - Your schedule determines what form the training takes – once a week for two hours, all day for two whole weeks, it is all up to you. It is also possible to take lessons via e-conferencing or webcam. Transperfect has all modern means of communication at its disposal to make training as easy as possible for our students.

Cultural Training

At Transperfect, we accelerate the acquisition of key skills related to lead in a complex, multicultural and cross frontier environment. This knowledge is at the heart of the skill sets of global leaders who need to master it and to build cohesive global teams. By fostering an adaptable and flexible mindset our customized programs contribute towards empowering and enabling the participants to effectively avoid basic pitfalls frequently encountered by expatriates and international managers and enlarge their ways of dealing with their new environment. These programs also deal with those personal aspects of adaptation and behavior which can facilitate and accelerate their professional integration and efficiency in the international field.

At the heart of our intercultural training solutions is the use of an online assessment tool, the Cultural Orientations Framework (COF) assessment tool. The tool stimulates reflective learning, opens up greater awareness and clarity about one's own cultural starting points and assumptions, particularly the cultural foundations of values and beliefs.

One or two day workshops delivered by high level consultants, help groups and individuals build valuable intercultural, communication and leadership skills, to be applied across international boundaries.

Language Testing

In addition to ensuring language proficiency and professional credentials, our tests fully evaluate a candidate’s ability to respond completely and accurately in targeted industries. Our team of testing and training consultants assesses proficiency in any language by Oral Proficiency Interviews (OPI), written assessments and in the case of interpretations Interpreter Proficiency Assessments (IPA) to help effectiveness, customer experience, and job satisfaction.
