TransPerfect, a language and technology services provider, has purchased French-based Hiventy Group, an audiovisual technical services company.

Hiventy focuses on technical audiovisual services including post-production, localization, distribution and film restoration. The company is based in Paris and serves clients through its locations in Warsaw, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, Casablanca, Nairobi and Lagos. The deal expands TransPerfect’s owned-and-operated footprint to over 90 recording rooms and eight theatrical rooms worldwide.

“Being part of a much larger, successful global enterprise will provide increased growth opportunities for our business and employees as well as access to new markets,” says Bertrand Chalon, EVP of strategy and business development for Hiventy. “For our customers and users, Hiventy will continue to deliver the same premium solutions and service excellence they expect from us, supplemented by the sizable global resources TransPerfect can now provide.”

TransPerfect was advised on the transaction by Baker Botts and Gide Loyrette Nouel.
