This report is the result of research conducted gathering data from multiple sources. Surveys and extensive interviews were held with buyer-side localization managers, vendor companies, and third-party industry observers and analysts to provide a comprehensive analysis in this report.
For insights from the buyer side, we reached out to companies that are involved in different software development, large (Global 100 Software Leaders) and small. We also interviewed large vendors from the Nimdzi 100 list of largest LSPs, as well as smaller language service providers that directly service the software and the IT industry.
This results in an overview that reflects main trends and views, helping us to answer the question, “What is the future of software localization and how can language service providers (LSPs) prepare for it?”
It comes as little surprise that Life Sciences is a sector firmly on the rise. While access to healthcare is democratizing across the globe, the growing needs of patients go hand in hand with technological advancements transforming the way businesses operate.
Nimdzi conducted this research project in cooperation with Translated in Argentina (TINA) and the Argentine Association of Language Services (AASL). The goal was to provide an overview of the language service provider (LSP) market in Argentina in 2019.
New disciplines are continually being created as the way we do business evolves. Trends pop up. Some only for a moment, others for the long-run. Entire market niches come into being seemingly out of thin air. Although it’s not always easy to know where these trends come from or where they are headed, the truth of the matter is that they burst forth in a flurry into our daily lives, and suddenly everyone is talking about them.
Every once in a while, people outside of the localization industry join events dedicated to the language business. We've heard them say we're a nice bunch of people, enthusiastic about our jobs. This feeling surrounding our industry was confirmed once again at MESA’s Content Workflow Management forum in London on 26 February.
