Starting out of a spare bedroom in their house in 1998, CEO Ken Zwerdling and President Tamar Paltrow created a translation services company. After more than 15 years working for large Fortune 500 companies and 5 years running his own Management Consulting firm, Ken decided it was time for a change. Tamar had been a professional Italian translator for most of her professional career. The combination of business experience and translation experience seemed like the perfect match. After starting out as a company that only provided Italian translations, the company expanded to offer all the major languages of the world.In early 2007, the company changed its name from Mondial Translations and Interpreting, Inc., to Foreign Translations, Inc. We outgrew our frequently mispronounced and misunderstood name Mondial, which is a derivative of the Italian word for worldwide, In January 2008, Foreign Translations received its registered trademark from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. As globalization takes center stage, the company plans to expand its services worldwide. According to Zwerdling, it was necessary to take the appropriate steps to grow and protect the companys brand. With the company name Foreign Translations, Inc., its branded and trademarked message Go Global With Confidence, and its website address www.foreigntranslations.com, Foreign Translations, Inc., has positioned itself as a global leader in the translation services industry. Here at Foreign Translations we do not just speak, read and write other languages, we have a passion for languages.Foreign Translations has more than 2,000 translators located in over 30 countries translating documents ranging from technical manuals, legal contracts and marketing collateral to financial statements, training manuals, e-learning courses, website translation, medical journals, software, policy and procedure handbooks, newsletters and much more.
