Why trust Tipalti with your translator,
interpretor, and/or linguist payments?

Building A Global Language Service Provider (LSP)

Improve Language Service Quality

Offer a choice of payment methods and currencies and deliver branded, automated payment notifications for complete visibility into payment statuses. Delivery fast, secure, cost-effective payments that will help you to attract and retain the best talent for your LSP.

Reduce LSP Risks

Protect against payment losses

AI-based fraud detection proactively flags potential LSP payment risks for review to help you avoid losses. All linguist, translator, interpretor, contractor, etc. records are scanned against a range of ‘Do Not Pay’ lists during onboarding and again before each payment, to ensure the legitimacy and legality of every transaction.

Automate Translation Workflows & Track Performance

Connect to Translation Management Systems

Connect various tracking platforms (e.g. Phrase) to add frictionless payments to your linguists, translators, contractors, and other language pros while integrating detailed, accurate transaction and reconciliation reports with your accounting system or ERP. Integrate Tipalti’s global payment infrastructure into your existing systems using our API, documentation, and developer hub.

Make Tax Filing Easy

Keep your LSP compliant

Don’t wait until year-end to hunt down your linguists, translators, contractors, and other language pros for their tax forms. Digitally collect and validate W-9 and W-8 series tax forms, or VAT and local tax IDs during onboarding, and produce submission-ready 1099 and 1042-S reports to eFile during tax season. Self-billing capabilities also allow you to automatically generate invoices as required by governments for tax processes and to execute payments upon approval.
