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.
