Take The 2016 Global Market Survey!
Each year, CSA Research conducts a comprehensive survey to size and characterize the global market for outsourced language services. This year's survey launches on January 27th and we strongly suggest all language service providers (LSPs) and language technology vendors to participate.
Why should you participate?
You make your industry more visible.
The mainstream media regularly cites data from this survey in articles about the language sector. Information about the services available from LSPs, the size of the market, and the distribution of suppliers is interesting to business readers - and the companies that buy language services and technology. The expansive list of media outlets below shows you just how far this information goes. These outlets also ask us for insights and datapoints from our other research derived from The Global Market Survey.
You get information about the market.
Companies rely on the rankings and results to benchmark performance against their competitors. LSPs that complete the survey will receive the survey findings for their region, including the rankings of top LSPs in the region, which they can use to compare their results with their counterparts.
You can attract buyers' attention.
Should you qualify for the regional or global ranking lists, your company will earn recognition among buyers of language services who otherwise may not know you exist. We have seen many buyers issues RFPs that specify they only will consider companies ranked on CSA Research lists.
You will gain an additional piece of research.
This year we are offering an additional brief, “Why Language Service Providers Fail to Grow”, to all companies who complete the survey by February 29th. We selected this piece of research specifically to help guide companies to grow their business.
Whether or not you qualify for the rankings, the information you provide only strengthens the quality of the information we make available to enterprises, government agencies, NGOs, and individuals that purchase your services, in addition to sizing the market.
