Based on 2021 verified revenues, independent market research firm CSA Research has named Global Lingo as one of the providers leading the delivery of language services globally, ranking it as the 77th largest LSP in the world and the 15th largest in Northern Europe.

Comments the CEO of Global Lingo, Karl Eastwood: “Despite rising global business environment pressures, we are continuing to see business growth, particularly in our interpreting, localisation and live captioning solutions. This is being driven by an increase in digital content and the need of our clients to reach a global audience. It’s not only a testament to the resilience in our industry but also the strength of the Global Lingo team. It is clear that language solutions is an essential service for our clients and a key factor in communicating with their audience.  I believe, albeit cautiously, that this will continue for the foreseeable future.”
