TransPerfect, a New York City-based language service provider (LSP), announced this week that it is opening an office in Noida, India, a satellite city on the outskirts of Delhi in the National Capital Region.
The LSP — which topped this year’s Nimdzi 100 this past February — announced that the Noida office will serve as the company’s regional hub and a document review center for TransPerfect Legal Solutions (TLS). This is the company’s third office in India, joining TransPerfect’s Chennai and Pune offices, and will employ about 75 team members for the time being.
“We have seen incredible growth from our offices in Pune and Chennai and now have nearly 600 team members based in India,” said Phil Shawe, CEO and president of TransPerfect. “This new facility in Delhi underscores our commitment to continuing our growth in the region to better serve our clients.”
In 2021, TransPerfect became the first billion-dollar LSP, raking in $1.1 billion in revenue and landing in the top slot on the Nimdzi 100, which ranks LSPs according to their yearly revenue and analyzes trends in the industry. The company has offices in more than 100 cities, with a global headquarters in New York City.
“I am proud to join a team that is focused on providing high quality local service in Delhi,” said Ritesh Miglani, an attorney and e-discovery specialist who will lead the company’s newest office. TransPerfect is a market leader and has demonstrated a long-term commitment to its clients and employees in India.” Miglani has been a regional manager at TLS since Oct. 2021.
As MultiLingual has reported in recent months, the Indian language services industry is fast-growing, thanks to the fact that the country is home to hundreds of languages (only 22 of which are officially recognized) and has a robust network of internet users. In April, MultiLingual spoke with Sandeep Nulkar, the former president of the Indian Confederation of Interpreting, Translation and Localization Businesses (CITLoB) on the status of the booming language services industry there. With TransPerfect increasing it’s presence in the country, the regional language industry in India is likely to be one to watch in the coming years.
