Localization managers often complain that it’s difficult to assess and compare language services vendors – that they all look alike. When you add the challenge of understanding the supply chain for translation and localization services, even the most experienced procurement staff struggle to understand the complexities of pricing, supplier types, services, subcontracting relationships, and specialties. Some try to solve the problem with complicated RFPs, but find this is only marginally successful.
To address this common challenge, language industry experts from the Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) community formed a working group and carried out research to determine the fundamental parameters by which service providers can be measured and compared. This webinar will examine the results of their research – a list of twelve key dimensions in three main areas – that can help procurement staff compile clear data for evaluation and comparison purposes.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and Véronique Özkaya, Chairman of the Board at GALA, for this free webinar to get a better understanding of the translation supply chain, learn about key metrics by which to measure and assess translation/localization providers, and the questions to ask yourself and your prospective language services vendors before embarking on a project.
