VistaTEC Joins First Wave of SDL LSP Partners
SDL, the leading provider of Global Information Management (GIM) solutions, today announced that VistaTEC, one of the translation industry’s largest Language Service Providers (LSPs), has joined SDL's LSP Partner Program.
Under the terms of the agreement, VistaTEC will get full access to SDL Translation Management System™ – the leading, enterprise workflow application for managing all aspects of clients’ global information. As part of the agreement, VistaTEC has also entered into the SDL technology beta programme to help provide feedback and input into the future direction of the industry standard in translation management.
VistaTEC, who has strengthened their close collaborative relationship with SDL’s technology management over the last few months, has already been invited to respond to localization services referrals. After many years of using SDL Trados software as the de facto standard the company is now formalizing SDL TRADOS Certification for its employees to continue to expand their broad technology expertise across the organization.
“As an independent globalization services provider VistaTEC is passionate about the integration of world class, industry standard technology into its process”, said Phil Ritchie, Chief Technology Officer at VistaTEC. “We see it as fundamental to the provision of efficient, high quality services to our customers. We believe that our commercial and technical collaboration with SDL will continue to grow to the benefit of localization services buyers worldwide.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of many close discussions with Phil and team over the past few months, and have really come to respect the amount of drive the company has for providing the best solutions for their customers,” said Keith Laska, Vice President of SDL TRADOS Technologies. "By joining the LSP Partner Program, VistaTEC have become a fully certified partner, adding increased value and expertise in world leading technology to over 480 corporate work givers using the SDL Translation Management System™, and over 150,000 Desktop technology customers who can now plug seamlessly into their translation workflow. I recommend their services to any company looking to adopt a Global Information Management strategy.”
