Thousands of language service providers around the globe work with hundreds of thousands of professional linguists to deliver translation, interpreting, and localization to organizations and individuals. This active and growing global industry accounts for US$46.52 billion in revenue.

Providers of language services (LSPs) and language technology vendor rely on CSA Research’s annual validated and verified rankings of the top LSPs, including the Top 100 LSPs™, the eight regional rankings, and the fastest growing LSPs, to benchmark their performance against their competitors and to earn recognition among buyers of language services that otherwise may not know they exist. Many buyers issue requests for proposals (RFPs) that specify they will consider only those companies ranked on these lists.

To produce these rankings, CSA Research conducted its 14th consecutive study of the market for outsourced language services and technology. It is based on a comprehensive survey of industry providers that follows our proven practice.

 This ranking report includes:

  • The Year in Review – an overview of 2017 and the first half of this year, focused on the leading suppliers of language services and technology.

  • Rankings – Validated and verified listings of the 103 largest providers around the globe, plus rankings for an additional 92 companies in eight geographic regions.These rankings are based on primary quantitative data collected by CSA Research in our survey of LSPs and technology vendors, plus published financial data for several publicly traded companies. All companies that participated in the survey had to verify their data. Note that this year we combined the rankings for Asia and Oceania into the Asia-Pacific region. 

  • Reported Revenue – listings of revenue in the local reporting currency for the companies listed in the global and regional rankings, as well as percentage change in revenue for the last two years.
