THE 2024 NIMDZI 100

Just Shy Of The Top 100

Just Shy Of The Top 100

While these companies did not quite make this year's Nimdzi 100 ranking due to the growth of other players as well as new arrivals on the ranking, their work in the translation and localization space is still impressive. With continued growth and innovation, they may well find themselves on the list in the future. For now, they merit recognition as leaders shaping the industry and pushing it forward. Though they missed the cutoff this time, their efforts continue to elevate the entire field.


The Watchlist consists of companies that could be in the ranking but are not listed because they do not disclose, publish, or otherwise reveal their revenue. Furthermore, some organizations are units inside larger corporate groups where a small part of revenue comes from language services, and annual reports do not allow researchers to segment out the translation and interpreting revenue. We provide visibility to such companies on the Watchlist to highlight their impact on the industry. 

The reason it is important for us to track these companies is because even though they might not compete for clients, they compete for talent and resources. They also represent opportunities for technology providers and investors.

The companies are listed in alphabetical order.
