Special Olympics And Lionbridge Expand Partnership To Offer Special Olympics Website In Six Languages

WALTHAM, Mass. and DUBLIN, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: LIOX),  a leading provider of translation, development and testing solutions, today announced that it has expanded its long-standing relationship with Special Olympics Europe/Eurasia. With this partnership, Lionbridge will now donate translation services for Special Olympics' global website, www.specialolympics.org, across multiple languages – expanding from English to now also include Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, and Spanish.

"By working with Lionbridge to provide a multilingual website for our global movement we are able to shine a brighter spotlight on the importance of respect, acceptance and inclusion of all people with intellectual disabilities," said Mary Davis, Regional President and Managing Director of Special Olympics Europe/Eurasia.  "We are extremely thankful to Lionbridge for their continued support. Their generous and important contribution of these translation services will significantly enhance our website to ensure greater accessibility to Special Olympics for millions of people across the globe."

Founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Special Olympics has grown to become the largest sports organization in the world for people with intellectual disabilities, providing year-round sports training, athletic competition and other related programs to nearly four million Special Olympics athletes in over 170 countries.

The Lionbridge program for Special Olympics combines services and technology to enable a highly-effective and efficient translation process.  To facilitate high-quality translation, Lionbridge uses Translation Workspace™, its cloud-based translation memory platform. The system's cloud-based architecture enables the simultaneous use of multiple translation memories on a single project and facilitates real-time collaboration among all project participants.  As a result,  Special Olympics gains a quality, multilingual communication site that can relay vital information to athletes, families, coaches, volunteers and partners around the world.

"We look forward to extending the value we provide to Special Olympics. Through sports they raise public awareness of the talents and needs of all people with intellectual disabilities throughout the world," said Rory Cowan, Lionbridge Chief Executive Officer. "Lionbridge continues to be an integral part of helping this organization achieve their goals to help athletes and supporters communicate more effectively."
