TransPerfect and Tencent Announce Cloud Partnership and GlobalLink Technology Agreement
NEW YORK, NY – September 3, 2019 - TransPerfect, the world's largest provider of language and technology solutions, for global business, today announced a strategic partnership with Tencent Cloud, a leading global cloud service provider and division of China-based technology firm Tencent. The partnership comprises two key elements: TransPerfect will use Tencent Cloud technology to provide global enterprises with improved speed, access, and network security throughout China, and Tencent Cloud will use TransPerfect’s GlobalLink suite to streamline translation and multilingual content management.

"With GlobalLink, Tencent Cloud is able to streamline our translation process on a unified platform and leverage a consolidated translation memory for higher efficiency,” said Davy Wang, Associate General Manager of Tencent Cloud International. “This has allowed us to localize our content much more quickly and accurately.”
Mark Hagerty, Chief Technology Officer at TransPerfect, commented, "Partnering with Tencent Cloud allows us to better serve our clients and partners who do business in China. Since collaborating with Tencent, we’ve seen dramatic performance improvements and a better overall user experience for our customers and in-country language teams.”
