The localization industry is undergoing a fundamental shift resulting from the introduction of new technology, automation and AI, new regulations and standards, as well as the increasing complexity of localization projects, which is usually tightly connected with constantly changing client needs. Putting technology front and center is key towards business continuity, but is this enough? Research shows that despite all the talk about technology a considerable percentage of those initiatives don't yield the expected benefits.
NLG’s Director of Operations talks about the new ingredients that should be added to the formula, providing a roadmap for how to help your organization get there. Coupling all that dazzling technology with the right processes, the right people with the right skills, working on the right projects is all the more imperative.
