The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) is the world's leading professional golf organization for women. Founded in 1950 and headquartered in Daytona Beach, Florida, the association celebrates a diverse and storied membership with more than 530 members, of which 125 are international members representing 32 different countries. The tour is televised in over 170 countries. In 2016 the LPGA selected TransPerfect as its official provider of translation and interpretation services.
"TransPerfect enables us to support our players, members, and partners, who represent a broad array of cultures, backgrounds, and languages," said Jon Podany, chief commercial officer of LPGA. "When we looked at potential translation and interpretation partners, it became clear that TransPerfect was the best choice for the LPGA. We want to take care of our non-English-speaking players and fans, and this partnership with TransPerfect helps us do that."
TransPerfect provides document translation and interpretation services to facilitate the tour's communications with its members, partners, and players, as well as to help promote the tour and its players in markets abroad.
