Based on 2021 verified revenues, the annual rankings are the result of the language industry’s most comprehensive, large-scale survey of the language services and translation technology market by CSA Research

The language services and technology industry includes more than 27,000 players worldwide, ranging from boutique local agencies to large global companies. This diverse group of language service providers (LSPs) and translation technology vendors adds up to a multi-billion-dollar global industry. Based on 2021 verified revenues, independent market research firm CSA Research has named Global Lingo as one of the industry challengers providing the delivery of language services globally, ranked as the 90th largest LSP in the world and 21st largest in Northern Europe.

Global Lingo is a multinational language service provider specialising in 6 key sectors, employing over 60 full-time staff across 5 global offices and partnering with over 6,000 linguists covering any industry or niche. They specialise in translation, localisation, minute taking, interpreting and transcription services on top of many other language solutions for companies across the globe.

Comments the Chief Operating Officer of Global Lingo, Karl Eastwood: “I am proud to be leading such a resilient and professional team at Global Lingo, who have continued to provide exceptional language solutions throughout these testing 17 months. It is a testament to them that we continue to evolve and ensure that our solutions always meet our clients’ needs. With year-on-year revenue growth of 26% as of 30th June 2021, we look forward to generating further profitable growth throughout the remainder of 2021 and beyond.”

LSPs and language technology developers support global experiences in other languages, delivering essential translation, interpreting, and localisation outsourcing capabilities to organisations and individuals around the world

Meeting this expectation fuels an indispensable multi-billion-dollar industry of language service and technology providers that keeps growing to support global digital transformation, help companies and governments improve customer experience, and respond to continuing globalisation,” comments Dr. Donald A. DePalma, CSA Research’s Chief Research Officer.
