SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TransPerfect, the world's largest privately held provider of language and technology solutions for global business, today opened the doors on GlobalLink NEXT 2016, its annual technology user conference for current and potential users of its GlobalLink translation management and website localization technology.
Previously known as the GlobalLink User Conference, the new name was chosen as it better reflects the mission of the event: to bring together business users and technology professionals in order to discuss and share the future of globalization management.
GlobalLink NEXT attendees include marketing and IT professionals, corporate executives, technology partners, and day-to-day users of GlobalLink technologies, including GlobalLink Project Director, GlobalLink Connect, and GlobalLink OneLink.
A broad array of industries are represented by attendees, including software/technology, retail/e-commerce, consumer products, life sciences, finance, travel, consulting/business services, and advertising/PR/marketing.
Among the two days of sessions are several keynote addresses, business case studies, and guidance offered by GlobalLink power users, as well as development roadmap and roundtables discussing the future of the GlobalLink suite of products with TransPerfect's development teams and executives.
"After the strong response to our first GlobalLink User Conference last year, we knew that the appetite for the knowledge shared by users of our technology and by our development team was significant," said Liz Elting, Co-CEO of TransPerfect. "We're looking forward to a record turnout this year, and we hope that the attendees will be able to return to their desks come Thursday with new strategies and approaches to elevate their multilingual content programs and grow their business abroad."
TransPerfect Co-CEO Phil Shawe remarked, "As one of the world's foremost technology hubs, San Francisco was an easy choice as a repeat host city for our flagship user conference. I'm looking forward to spending these next couple of days alongside our clients, partners, and development teams to share ideas, experiences, and perspectives. The excitement surrounding GlobalLink's recent releases and roadmap is at all-time high."
GlobalLink NEXT opens its doors for 2016 in a year that's already seen TransPerfect post 35% growth for the GlobalLink suite of products, reaching an all-time sales high.
