Translations.com speaks many languages -- including programming languages. In addition to translation services, the company offers software that adapts content and applications to specific languages and cultures. For example, it can help a client update a multiple-language website synchronized in real time. Other services include multilingual desktop publishing, cultural consulting, and international search marketing. Translations.com employs some 4,000 professional linguists and operates from more than 50 offices across the globe. In 1999 Translations.com was spun off from document translation firm TransPerfect Translations, which was founded in 1992 by co-CEOs Phil Shawe and Elizabeth Elting.
