NEW YORK -- October 29, 2012

TransPerfect, the world’s largest privately held provider of language services
and translation-related technologies, today announced that it played a
successful role in the launch of an online video campaign for a leading
Olympic advertiser. Working with The ZiZo Group and Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO),
TransPerfect provided end-to-end language translation and localization
services for the videos in 10 different languages. The ZiZo Group is a world
leader in marketing original content for major brands and media companies for

The ZiZo Group produced a total of 21 episodes, which are now airing on the
Yahoo! channel "Team Mom," the search engine’s women’s lifestyle content feed,
across 11 countries. TransPerfect collaborated and consulted with The ZiZo
Group from the planning stage through completion of the project, driving the
following:

  * Translation of the interview questions for the Olympians and their mothers
    in eight languages
  * Language interpretation services during the live, on-location interviews
    around the world
  * Translation and drafting of complete video scripts for multilingual videos
  * Translation and localization of the post-production video subtitling,
    enabling international viewers to view and understand the videos

“The video series show that moms of the world’s elite athletes share the same
universal experiences across all languages and cultures,” said Gabriel Reiter,
producer with The ZiZo Group. “The language translation experts at
TransPerfect eased the process of creating multilingual video materials as
part of our campaign, serving as a key partner by helping our production team
meet aggressive shooting schedules across the globe.” Roger Fishman, president
of The ZiZo Group, added, “TransPerfect and Yahoo! were amazing partners and
it was a real pleasure to work on this world class project.”

TransPerfect handled translation and localization of content from English into
French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Russian, Ukrainian, Turkish, and two
Indian languages. A TransPerfect language specialist was also on-site at the
shoot locations to translate the in-language interviews with the Olympic
athletes and the moms. The stories shared by the moms of the athletes became
the centerpiece of each video, tying all 21 episodes together with reflections
on the dedication and support each Olympic competitor has gained on the long
road to London.

“We're proud that companies like The ZiZo Group rely on TransPerfect to help
with the creation of social media content that appeals to an international
audience,” said Liz Elting, president and Co-CEO of TransPerfect. “This
translation project demonstrates that regardless of language preference,
people around the world are interested in learning about the athletes and
their families.”
