TransPerfect Opens Office in DÃ¼sseldorf
NEW YORK & DÜSSELDORF, August 9, 2010 – TransPerfect, the world’s largest privately held provider of translation services, today announced that its fifth office in Germany has officially opened and is located in Düsseldorf. With the addition of this location, TransPerfect expands its global footprint to 18 cities in Europe and to 63 cities worldwide.
North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), with its capital Düsseldorf, is one of the most important business hubs in Europe. Nearly one in five Euros is earned in this region—more than in any other German state. Thanks to the state’s robust economy and its central location in the European transport network, NRW has developed in recent years from a traditional industrial area to a modern and competitive economic center. Today, half of the 50 German companies with the highest sales are based in NRW, including Bayer, E.ON, RWE, Bertelsmann, ThyssenKrupp, Deutsche Telekom, Deutsche Post, Metro, Ford, Henkel, Rewe Group, Deutsche BP, Tengelmann, Aldi, Franz Haniel, Deutsche Lufthansa, Karstadt-Quelle, and Hochtief.
According to TransPerfect CEO Liz Elting, “As a major European business hub, North Rhine-Westphalia has a substantial need for high quality language services. We look forward to serving current and future clients in the area with our new local office in Düsseldorf.”
With revenue of over $220 million, TransPerfect is the largest privately held language services provider in the world.
