There is a shadow industry driving the growth of ALL global brands: Localization. Let’s talk globalization, localization, translation, interpretation, language, and culture, with an emphasis on how it affects your business, whether you have a scrappy start-up or are working in a top global brand. Topics are taken from the most recently published market research from Nimdzi Insights (and other sources) and will feature guest speakers from time to time. If you have suggestions for new topics or guests, or would like to be a guest yourself, please reach out to our producers at [email protected] to pitch your idea.
All episodes are available via multiple online providers - Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher - download and listen regardless of where you manage your podcasts.
It's earnings season and several publicly traded companies from the Nimdzi 100 — our ranking of the 100 largest language service providers (LSPs) in the world — have released their half-year results for 2022. We at Nimdzi collected, normalized, and analyzed the data in an effort to see how 2022 is advancing for the language industry and to check if our growth projections are panning out.
Imagine this: you decide to expand your very successful and popular mobile cooking app to other markets across the globe. You want to reach a wider audience and maximize your return on investment. You start by contacting translators and localization experts to ensure your app’s content is accessible to audiences from different countries. But is that enough?
As Nimdzi’s co-founder Renato Beninatto likes to say, there have only ever been three disruptive innovations in the language industry: e-mail, Translation memory software, Machine translation, and Google Translate in particular. But is there anything else? An idea so innovative that it could transform and reshape our industry?
The Nimdzi 100 is one of our flagship publications. It includes a ranking of the top 100 LSPs by revenue, a watchlist of large players that don’t disclose their revenues, and a detailed overview of the size and state of the language services industry. The Nimdzi 100 is widely considered an industry standard and is read by tens of thousands of people in the translation and localization space and beyond. LSPs, localization buyers, investors, savvy job seekers, and analysts will benefit from this free resource.
