Our research covers a broad range of topics: buyer behavior reports, vertical reports, the technology landscape, neural machine translation, market size of the translation and interpreting space, software/multimedia/game localization, and much more.

  • Consulting

    Market research analysts and consultants are accelerators for your plans. They identify what you may have otherwise missed and should challenge your enthusiasm with a reality check. Whether you’re looking to expand your international programs, fortify your business model, educate yourself on geocultural issues, or enter the merger and acquisition arena, Nimdzi’s team of experts is at your service.

    Nimdzi Partners benefit from unlimited 30-minute Office Hour calls with any Nimdzi expert. Nimdzi Partners can call anyone on the Nimdzi team for feedback on current initiatives, one-on-one coaching, or advice. We’re here to help you and your team succeed.

  • Education

    Managing and training a team can be overwhelming. That’s why our clients turn to us for help. If you’re looking for training programs focused on sales, program and project management, technology or international business development, you can benefit from Nimdzi’s customized programs that address your unique needs. Our proven track record speaks for itself.

    In addition to training programs and seminars, Nimdzi hosts regular webinars and podcasts, speaks at industry events, and serves on advisory boards for various clients and industry associations.

    Co-founders Renato Beninatto and Tucker Johnson also teach future localization professionals at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, following the framework depicted in their book, The General Theory of the Translation Company.

  • Global Readiness

    Operating in today’s global marketplace means navigating complex and competing geopolitical and cultural realities with inherent risks. From product labeling issues that incur the wrath of government censors to imagery or messaging that leaves audiences confused or offended, the challenges are many.

    Nimdzi helps you understand the lens through which your international customers view the world—the parameters in your global markets that drive the culture underlying language and communication. Nimdzi offers LSP, enterprise, technology, and government clients customized research ranging from market, geopolitical, cultural and language intelligence to sensitive terminology and image review to content internationalization consulting.

What People Say About Nimdzi

The workshop was indeed super valuable. Miguel has helped us a lot to understand how to measure our impact, what are the limits in isolating localization efforts and how to communicate it.
Emilia Porfiri
Localization Director at Bitso
Communica has had a Nimdzi subscription for one year, and in that time, we have managed to achieved all our target set at the beginning of the year - I am happy to say we have had a successful year.
Tina Julsgaard
CEO at Comunica.dk Translation
The process of bringing everybody into the conversation rather than just a leadership team to talk about it has been extremely helpful because things came up that I wouldn't necessarily have thought of myself.
Stephen Lank
VP Translation Services at Cesco Linguistic Services, Inc.
I just want to say you are awesome! Thank you for all your hard work Istvan.
Marta Kobus
Translation Team Leader at Schneider Electric
I can tell that I had a pretty good knowledge of the market and what goes on, but the consultants were very thorough in their analysis and their proposals. I must confess that past experiences with consultancies had not been excellent. But here I discovered serious added value. Well, who says added value, says added cost. But I can say it was money well spent.
Josep Bonet
Director of the Language, Documentation and Information Management Division at World Trade Organization
Just a quick note to thank you for your fantastic workshop! I can tell you, people can't stop raving about what you taught today! Your style along with the high-quality materials are simply awesome. It was so great to have 50+ folks in the live audience. I can't wait to share the recording and the deck with an ever wider audience. International is a top priority for Smartsheet this year. I'm so glad you were able to help me set this journey up for success. Can't wait for the next workshop.
Carsten Kneip
Director of Localization at Smartsheet
