NEW YORK--(CCNMatthews - Aug 8, 2005) -

TransPerfect Translations, the world's leading provider of international communications services, announced today the opening of a new office in Montreal, Canada. The new office will support existing clients in Quebec, while also serving as a primary office for clients throughout Canada.

A true international hub, Montreal has long been known of as one of the most welcoming cities for international business in the world. The city is now home to a number of foreign banks and international financial centers, as well as over 200 research centers in fields such as biotechnology, information technology, and multimedia.

Liz Elting, President & CEO, said, "TransPerfect has worked for years to help foster better communication throughout our rapidly globalizing business world. Montreal's cosmopolitan nature and diverse range of industries made it an exciting home for our first Canadian office. We are confident that our experience, commitment to client service, and new location will drive tremendous growth opportunities."

Brooke Christian, Senior Vice President of Global Sales added, "Having a local presence in Montreal is a natural extension of our North American footprint. It will allow us to expand upon relationships with existing local clients, such as Nortel, MDS, and Sun Life Financial. It also allows us to better meet the needs of multinational corporations that are invested in Canada. In many ways, Montreal serves as a gateway between the US and Europe. We are eager to bring TransPerfect's world-class host of language services to the world-class city of Montreal."
