Language service is, by definition, a global industry. Language service buyers (LSBs) rely upon a network of language services providers (LSPs) to help them on their journey to world domination by increasing their global footprint. How do LSPs position themselves in order to provide the best global service offerings to their clients? Does it make a difference where an LSP is headquartered? How important is it for LSPs to have local offices next to their clients or close to their supply chain? These are some of the questions we will be looking at in this report.
In this report, we look at a sample of over 150 LSPs that have offices in two or more locations. This means that the sample of companies is comprised of “larger” LSPs (generally those with over 100 employees. We look primarily at two main indicators:
By studying trends in these two areas, we can learn how the industry-leading LSPs plan their global growth, and we can draw conclusions on the impact of LSP global growth strategies based on their ability to provide better service to their customers.
Help LSPs create and follow a global expansion strategy
A lot of LSP expansion is not planned. Companies get acquired (coincidental growth), offices are opened to meet client demands (reactive growth), or additional offices are added just to expand capacity because perhaps the local labor market is tapped out (capacity growth). This report allows LSPs to ask the question:
Provide a benchmark for LSBs to evaluate their supply chain
Are you getting a full global service from your vendors, or are you missing out on opportunities because they don’t have the global infrastructure needed to support your needs?

In this webinar co-hosted by Nimdzi and Xillio, we look at technology around localization and connectivity.
Continuous growth and fragmentation have been the key characteristics of the language services market. Let's see what the data says.
Nimdzi has gathered responses from over 100 localization decision-makers to understand what are the deciding factors when selecting which language services provider (LSP) to partner with, both on an individual level, as well as what their companies are looking for.
