Welcome to International Women’s Day 2022, a day to celebrate women's achievements and increase visibility of women’s issues! This year, Nimdzi wants to celebrate the women-owned companies in our industry, with the help of some data from the recently published Nimdzi 100.
The Nimdzi 100 is one of our flagship publications. It includes a ranking of the top 100 LSPs by revenue, a watchlist of large players that don’t disclose their revenues, and a detailed overview of the size and state of the language services industry. The Nimdzi 100 is widely considered an industry standard and is read by tens of thousands of people in the translation and localization space and beyond. LSPs, localization buyers, investors, savvy job seekers, and analysts will benefit from this free resource.
