Summary
We often hear from large language service providers (LSPs) that they don’t want to process small jobs. Meanwhile, small LSPs tell us that they want to move up the ladder and compete with bigger players on big projects. What constitutes “small” varies by the size, business plan, and self-perception of the provider. Some set the floor at jobs under a thousand dollars, while others reject projects that bring in less than 50 thousand dollars. They reason that small jobs require proportionally as much management as do large ones and thus produce less profit. While that’s true, it misses the point that these lesser projects often serve as gateways to new clients and markets. .
