LUZ, Inc. commemorates 20 years of providing high-quality translation services to life science companies. The woman- and minority-owned business (M/WBE) began in 1994 with two founders in San Francisco. Today, it is a global company with office locations on four continents.
The translation company is named after the Spanish word for “light”; it symbolizes LUZ’s commitment to demystifying the translation and localization process and it is a tribute to cofounder and CEO Monique Rivas’s Hispanic heritage.
“We founded LUZ with a mission to empower life science clients to succeed in global markets,” said Ms. Rivas. “Maintaining a strong commitment to our clients and employees has enabled us to grow from a small business into a large, international company that has processed millions of words in over 30 languages on our AURORA platform.”
LUZ’s AURORA LSM™ platform gives clients unique visibility into their translation ecosystem. The AURORA platform enables LUZ’s clients to access scheduling, reporting, and financial information in real time.
“Providing our clients with comprehensive insight into the translation process has been and continues to be a cornerstone of our service philosophy,” said Sanford Wright, cofounder and president of LUZ. “We not only make project analytics available to our clients, but we also education them about best practices in the translation process. Our goal is to help our clients make smart decisions that lead to cost savings and increased competitiveness. We’re looking forward to at least another twenty years of serving pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufactures, clinical research labs, and other life science clients.”
