Remote Working in the Language Industry

Language services professionals work remotely more often than any other industry.

The language services industry is more remote-worker-friendly than any other industry, Nimdzi Insights uncovered in a recent report. You could say this makes sense, given the global nature of our business.

We dug deeper to learn whether our “common sense” assumptions about our industry are true. Not only were they confirmed, but we learned additional insights too:

  • Vendor-side workers are more likely to have remote working situations than client-side workers.
  • Linguists are the most likely team members to work remotely full-time, followed by vendor managers and sales personnel. This is understandable, given that these functions benefit from close proximity to supply chains and clients, which may not always be near a brick and mortar office. 
  • Remote work is not highly correlated to years of experience in the industry. 
  • Gender plays no role in whether an employee works remotely or from the office.
