Most established translation companies have developed an internal custom TMS, or adapted a heavily-customized non-translation ERP. A few go beyond that and create client-facing software products. They hire developers and transform into part-services, part-technology companies.

Watch this webinar to learn from TextMinded, translate plus, and Intertranslations:

  • How their software products help their core businesses
  • What does it cost to design and maintain technology
  • How development impacts company structures

Working with enterprise customers requires some integration and development capability inhouse from any LSP, but is it worth going for a full-feature own product?  Should you start developing in 2017? Watch this webinar and hear perspectives from the panelists, and get answers to your questions.

*The panel is moderated by Konstantin Dranch, Memsource.
