Whether managing a team of three toddlers or a team of remote, international colleagues, Tucker Johnson is keeping track of the leads and the lags. Join this webinar with him as he introduces you to the basics of WIGs and the value of setting up and working towards goals on a company-wide level. Tucker Johnson is Co-Founder of Nimdzi Insights.

It is a given nowadays that when organizations expand internationally or consolidate their existing global presence, they need to invest in localization. This does not simply mean linguistic resources but also technological investments that contribute to translation productivity among other efficiencies.
On October 11, 2022, Google announced the launch of a new AI-powered cloud service called Translation Hub. The announcement instantly made waves in the language services industry and beyond, so Nimdzi took a closer look to see what’s really behind the new offering from the tech giant.
Are your beautifully complex localization workflows keeping you awake at night? Do you feel like they’re controlling you more than you’re controlling them? Look no further! Worry no more! We have a cool, no-frills exercise to help you make them work for you.
Translation management systems (TMS) are one of the oldest language technologies out there. The first solutions appeared in the 80s with the emergence of brands such as STAR Transit and Trados, and the segment has been booming since 2010. In 2022, there are well over 160 technologies of this type on the market.
