TransPerfect Announces Integration With IBM Aspera

NEW YORK, April 5, 2017

TransPerfect, the world’s largest privately held provider of language services and translation-related technology solutions, today announced a full integration with Aspera, an IBM company, and the leading high-performance file transfer protocol with a focus on the media industry.

By integrating Aspera’s FASP protocol into TransPerfect’s technology stack, high-volume file transfers—particularly common in the media industry—are now available, enhancing the level of service available to clients as well as the overall client experience. Files that once took days to transfer across multiple production stakeholders, reviewers, or recipients can now be sent and received in minutes.

Aside from offering pure speed, Aspera’s FASP protocol is equipped with built-in security for data transfers using the standard open-source OpenSSL toolkit, ensuring that file transfers are not only the fastest in the industry but also the most secure.

Liz Elting, Co-CEO at TransPerfect, stated, “The demand for content and media continues to grow, and with that also increases the pressure on the players in the content development lifecycle to enhance capabilities for delivering bigger, faster, and more secure solutions that enable producers to get to market. Aspera’s FASP protocol is the gold standard for high-speed file transfer and a truly game-changing technology that will shorten timelines significantly, both for us and our clients, when dealing with multi-gigabytes files.”

“We’re proud to announce our technical integration with Aspera IBM,” added Phil Shawe, Co-CEO at TransPerfect. “The newly launched platform will offer clients tangible benefits with respect to all aspects of translation efficiency.”
