NEW YORK, NY, November 27, 2007 – TransPerfect Inc. today announced it was named for a second year in a row to Crain's New York Business' list of the “NY Area's Largest Privately Held Companies,” climbing 25 spots from last year's list to the 145th spot in the rankings.

Elting added, “We've been blessed with having some of the most dedicated and motivated professionals in the business services industry on our team. The success behind this recognition is something that our entire company can take a great deal of pride in having achieved.”
