Welcoming Sublime to the TransPerfect family of companies complements its existing infrastructure—which includes TransPerfect’s Barcelona-based studios and Lassostudios’ Madrid facility.
The founding partners will continue to lead the division and will join TransPerfect’s senior management team, where they will advise on overall company production strategy for media and entertainment. All current employees are expected to remain with the company, and the division will report to TransPerfect’s Senior Vice President Barnaby Wass based in Barcelona.
Nazarian remarked, "By combining the know-how and expert subtitling resources of the Sublime team with the technologies and resources of the TransPerfect team, we will now be able to do what we do best on a much larger scale and in a more cost-effective manner. Together, we are better equipped to meet the challenges of our growing industry and offer our clients the best possible solutions."
