Liz Elting and Phil Shawe met at New York University Stern School of Business in 1991. Having spent several years working in the translation industry, Ms. Elting felt there was a need for a service-minded enterprise that could deliver complex projects quickly and accurately. In 1992, Elting and Shawe founded TransPerfect to fill that gap. Their mission: to provide the highest quality language services to leading businesses worldwide. With no external financing, TransPerfect grew from its beginnings as a two-person company operating out of a dorm room into one of the world's most reputable language and business services companies.
Over the years, TransPerfect and its founders have won numerous awards. TransPerfect was recognized as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the US by making the Inc. 500. TransPerfect's founders have been recognized as Ernst and Young's Entrepreneurs of the Year. Co-founder, Liz Elting, has been recognized as Woman of the Year by American Express and Entrepreneur Magazine and has won the Working Woman Award for Excellence in Client Service. The company is also recognized for developing the industry standard for linguist certification, the TransPerfect Linguist Certification (TLC) program, which tests linguists for language proficiency and subject-area specialization.
Today, TransPerfect has over 4,000 full-time employees, a network of over 5,000 certified linguists and subject-area specialists, and over 90 offices in cities around the globe, making it the world’s largest privately held language services provider.
