thebigwordGroup Awarded GSA Contract for Translation Services


Wednesday, 2 April, 2008

New York, NY – thebigwordGroup, a global translation and language services company, today announced that it has been awarded a contract on the General Services Administration’s (GSA) schedule for Translation Services. Specifically, thebigwordGroup will have available dedicated document, website translation and on-demand telephone interpreting services for the 250 federal agencies served by the GSA.

As the largest translation services spender in the world, the U.S. Government has added thebigwordGroup to its short list of approved language translation service providers for US government agencies. The GSA is the governing body which initiates contact, builds relationships, and solidifies contracts with the nation's top government vendors. The nationally recognized GSA certification provides government verification of thebigword’s competitive pricing and services and offers this information through the GSA Advantage program. This is a valuable tool in accessing government procurement programs and serving their localization, translation and language services needs domestically and abroad.

“We are extremely pleased about the opportunities and recognition that the GSA contract brings to our company. The US has a rapidly growing non-English speaking US population and Federal agencies are responding by offering services and communications in many languages. With an estimated translation spend of more than $400 million, these agencies are a valuable source of new business for us. As a result, we will begin implementing our sales and marketing strategy to begin building and winning business through this channel,” commented Larry Gould, Chairman for thebigwordGroup.

“To be awarded a GSA contract speaks volumes for the quality of our services, such as our recently launched LanguageDirector™. We are able to offer great service at a low cost, but even more important is the GSA recognized the superior reliability and guaranteed accuracy in thebigwordGroup’s language translation services, which is obviously very important to government agencies. It shows that even the government understands globalization has removed geographic barriers and any company or agency should seek out the best products and services no matter where they come from,” concluded Gould.
