Our research covers a broad range of topics: buyer behavior reports, vertical reports, the technology landscape, neural machine translation, market size of the translation and interpreting space, software/multimedia/game localization, and much more. Additionally, Partners can use our many tool comparison widgets to compare thousands of parameters across hundreds of tools and connectors.

  • Consulting

    Market research analysts and consultants are accelerators for your plans. They identify what you may have otherwise missed and should challenge your enthusiasm with a reality check. Whether you’re looking to expand your international programs, fortify your business model, educate yourself on geocultural issues, or enter the merger and acquisition arena, Nimdzi’s team of experts is at your service.

    Nimdzi Partners benefit from unlimited 30-minute Office Hour calls with any Nimdzi expert. Nimdzi Partners can call anyone on the Nimdzi team for feedback on current initiatives, one-on-one coaching, or advice. We’re here to help you and your team succeed.

  • Education

    Managing and training a team can be overwhelming. That’s why our clients turn to us for help. If you’re looking for training programs focused on sales, program and project management, technology or international business development, you can benefit from Nimdzi’s customized programs that address your unique needs. 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.
