New Location is Third in Germany for World's Largest Privately-Owned Language Services Company

NEW YORK, New York, January 29, 2008 – TransPerfect, the world's largest privately-owned provider of language and business services, today announced the opening of a new office in Berlin, Germany, in a step that highlights the city's growing demand for international communication services. The new TransPerfect office will enable the company to better serve existing clients throughout Europe, while also providing local service to customers in the German capital. The decision to open TransPerfect's third client service facility in Germany was driven by the proliferation of global corporations in the Berlin-Brandenburg area, as well as the continued growth of the city's hi-tech industry. 

According to Liz Elting, TransPerfect's President and CEO, "With more European countries joining the EU, Berlin is now the geographical center of an expanded Europe. Further, it is a vibrant, multicultural and technologically-advanced city that hosts an increasing number of forward-thinking technology, life sciences, and media firms." 

"We're pleased to now be able to offer a local point of contact for our established legal and pharmaceutical clients in Berlin. Additionally, the growing demand for a full range of global business solutions within Berlin's dynamic business environment represents an exciting opportunity for TransPerfect to further extend its European operations," noted Angela O'Sullivan, TransPerfect's VP of European Operations.
