TransPerfect Translations to Provide Global Translation Technology to Arch Chemicals, Inc.
NEW YORK, NY (February 9, 2009) – TransPerfect, the world’s largest privately held provider of language and business services, today announced that it will be providing translation services and Globalization Management System (GMS) technology in support of Arch Chemicals’ efforts to reach a wider audience of global customers.
TransPerfect has provided translation services for various divisions of Arch Chemicals for over 4 years. Through the expanded relationship, Arch Chemicals will also implement TransPerfect's GlobalLink GMS technology platform which will automate many of the manual and labor-intensive tasks associated with procuring translation services. GlobalLink technology may be either installed or hosted; Arch will implement GlobalLink's hosted solution, which enables the company to benefit from drastically reduced project management time, more cost-savings from enhanced leveraging of previous translations, and faster time-to-market for translated content, all through a secure and intuitive web interface.
According to John Hott of Arch Chemicals’ global Regulatory Affairs department, “Based on our longstanding relationship with TransPerfect, we knew they would provide our company with exceptional service and translation quality. By centralizing our translation projects with TransPerfect and implementing their GlobalLink technology, we will now also benefit from more consistent terminology and more efficient project management.”
TransPerfect President and CEO Liz Elting, added, “As a global leader in their sector, Arch Chemicals must effectively communicate with employees and customers throughout the world. We are honored that Arch has selected TransPerfect to support the company’s global initiatives.”
