This brief presents the 20 language service providers with the highest sustained revenue increases over the past three years and the 20 companies that grew the most in a one-year period. It is based on the research that CSA Research conducted for its annual report on the language sector (see “The Language Services Market: 2015,” Jun15). For 61% of respondents, 2014 was a good year that represented an increase in revenue. However, the success of these growing companies varies greatly, and few are those that experience huge growth spurts and even less are those that can sustain them in the long run.
This research also presents data on behavior patterns between the companies that appear this year’s lists and the other growing LSPs that responded to our survey. We contrasted the reasons for the increase, the importance of existing accounts to the growth, and compared the services, technology, industries, and regions that grew the most.
