Internal LSP: The Localization team at the Portuguese GDC is the go-to service provider for internal clients, while interfacing with external vendors.

On the road to centralization: Local and regional product teams still retain decision-making power for localization. The Localization team is evangelizing the merits of a centralized approach.

New services are being added to the mix: The Localization team is anticipating internal demand, working to include value-add, non-translation services, such as over-the-phone interpreting (OPI), in their portfolio.
