NEW YORK, NY, April 11, 2017 – TransPerfect, the world’s largest privately held provider of language and technology solutions for global business, today reported first quarter sales of $134 million, setting a new Q1 record. This figure represents an increase of 11% over the same period in 2016, and a 27% jump over 2015.
Coming off a 2016 that saw the company post an all-time high of $547 million in total revenues, TransPerfect’s continued rapid growth has the company trending far ahead of last year’s strong results. As was the case last year, sales totals for January, February, and March were the highest in the company’s history for each respective month, once again suggesting that TransPerfect’s growth is sustainably generated, rather than the result of one exceptionally strong month or a large sale disproportionately impacting numbers.
Sales of its award-winning GlobalLink translation management technology continue to grow, with Q1 unit sales up 43%. Over 180 new companies implemented GlobalLink technology during the period.
In addition to technology sales, multiple verticals and practice groups showed significant gains, including finance, healthcare, life sciences, and international e-discovery/litigation support groups.
TransPerfect Co-CEO Liz Elting remarked, “The strong start to our year comes from one thing: our never-ending drive to improve as a company and partner. Our clients count on us to propel their businesses forward, and it will take continued hard work and innovation from our amazing team in order to deliver.”
Co-CEO Phil Shawe commented, “I am continually both blessed and humbled by the ability of our team to overcome any adversity, focus on driving success for our clients, and consistently deliver outstanding results.”
TransPerfect expects to open multiple new offices in 2017, including production hubs and call center facilities, all designed to support both existing business units as well as new groups and solutions.
