Translators and Interpreters: The Future of LSP Supply Chains

Monday, 21 September, 2020 - 11:45

CSA Research conducted a large-scale survey of translators and interpreters in all corners of the world. To ensure comprehensiveness and a representative sample in this survey, we partnered with Proz.com and Translators without Borders. The thousands of answers we received enabled us to gauge the demographics, behaviors, attitudes, and challenges of linguists in this day and age. Thanks to the data, we were able to outline what the future of freelance and in-house linguists will look like and how LSPs and buyers need to prepare for it. Come learn about important findings regarding translator productivity, attitude toward various technology, and desire to stick to the profession long-term.
