History

TransPerfect acquired eTranslate (original developer of GlobalLink) in 1999. Since then GlobalLink has evolved from a single product into an enterprise translation management system supporting virtually any content type and any content repository (via 65+ pre-built connectors or API integration), proprietary CAT tools, server-based translation memory and neural machine translation. Many key eTranslate personnel, including the current CTO, CIO and SVP of Development remain with TransPerfect and continue to guide GlobalLink development. TransPerfect has consistently invested in R&D associated with GlobalLink to provide continuous innovation, with over $40 MM allocated in 2022 alone.
As of 2023, more than 500 full-time employees support GlobalLink development, implementation and 24x7x365 global customer support via multiple technology hubs located in the US, EMEA and APAC regions.
