NEW YORK, Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TransPerfect, the world's largest privately held provider of language services and technology solutions, today announced the opening of new offices in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. These locations will allow the company to provide additional local support to current clients in both cities, while also responding to the growing demand for a wide range of global communication services and related technologies.
Known colloquially as the Steel City because of its historical steel industry, Pittsburgh's economy is now largely based on healthcare, education, technology, and financial services. With nine Fortune 500 companies calling the area home—including PNC Financial Services, U.S. Steel, H.J. Heinz Company, Mylan, and CONSOL Energy—Pittsburgh is the eighth-largest city in the nation for Fortune 500 headquarters. The opening of a Pittsburgh location marks TransPerfect's third office in the state of Pennsylvania.
Sioux Falls, the largest city in South Dakota, is home to TransPerfect's first office in the state. The city is consistently listed among the country's fastest-growing and most desirable places to live, including ranking as USA Today's fourth fastest-rising economy, the fastest-growing metro area in the Midwest by Forbes, and the number one up-and-coming city for recent college graduates. The Sioux Falls region is home to several major businesses in healthcare, finance, agriculture, and education, including Avera Health, John Morrell & Co., Great Western Bank, Midcontinent Communications, and Daktronics. The new office, managed by TransPerfect's Director of Digital Content Optimization, Colt Foutz, will serve as the global hub for TransPerfect's SEO practice, which specializes in helping companies implement sound global strategy for search, social, and emerging media.
"Providing dedicated local support to our clients is a high priority for us," said TransPerfect Executive Vice President and Chief Sales Officer, Brooke Christian. "We are enthusiastic about expanding our reach to two new cities in Pittsburgh and Sioux Falls, and look forward to serving new and existing clients in these areas."
The addition of these new offices enables TransPerfect to provide a local point of contact for current clients in the regions, while also responding to increasing demand for integrated language services and technology solutions from the breadth of industries operating in the immediate areas. TransPerfect offers a full suite of global business services, including translation, website and software localization, multicultural marketing, e-learning and training support, remote and in-person interpretation, and legal support services.
