We Are

TransPerfect Connect is a division of TransPerfect

Our family of companies provides language services and technology solutions for global business.

More than 25 years ago, Liz Elting and Phil Shawe founded TransPerfect with a mission to help the world's businesses navigate the global marketplace. With decades of hands-on experience, TransPerfect's consultative approach and rigorous quality have made it the industry leader.

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.
