Join CSA Research senior analyst Dr. Arle Lommel for a discussion of the “Reverse Swiss Cheese Model” – a way of thinking about the barriers and opportunities you create for international visitors to your website and business – and how it affects your business success. This approach lies behind the Global Customer Experience Calculator, a free tool that calculates the likelihood that individual customers in our “Can’t Read, Won’t Buy - B2C” panels will make it through the various stages ...

While translation reuses analytics and process KPIs are already part of the localization team’s core deliverables, many miss out on creating business-oriented guidance that can help functions in other areas of the company interpret the degree to which local markets contribute to revenue and growth. As AI and machine learning with other forms of automation advance rapidly, dashboards and their underlying data will continue to evolve. In time, much of the information that dashboards passively rep...

Mismatches in expectation between buyers and sellers of language services are a frequent source of quality problems and dissatisfaction. Many industries address such challenges through the establishment of “grades,” standardized descriptions of the qualities and features a good or service must exhibit to meet requirements for particular use cases. For example, tools may come in “consumer” and “professional” grades that have very different feature sets, and agricultural products may be assi...

In this presentation, Dr. DePalma rethinks the business value of localization in user, customer, and employee experiences. As localization becomes an essential enabler of global content and communication, it must become part of the enterprise business infrastructure. DePalma analyzes this “enterprise-ification” in terms of the people, process, and technologies that will evolve into this business-critical role.

The move to more inclusive language to deliver content that does not exclude people on the grounds of gender, race, class, sexuality, disability, or any other criteria, is changing how companies and organizations communicate. Many large businesses have already defined their diversity and inclusion (D&I) strategy, but what does that mean when it comes to global business, or for local multicultural communities? Does it even translate? The movement began in the United States, but as a global – and...

Enterprises aspire to a global customer experience, but often the individuals who are responsible for preparing the content to support this goal have little ability to assess its effectiveness when it is deployed. In many cases, localization groups think they are doing well because they manage the process and get good results from their vendors, yet their customers discover a far different reality, with mixed language (or unlocalized) content and graphics, links that go nowhere, and a generally ...

The rise of ever-improving neural machine translation and the improvement of other translation technologies is dramatically changing the working environment of professional linguists. Increasingly, translators and interpreters are required to use machine translation and other technologies, but many linguists find themselves pushed to the end of the line in terms of their ability to effect meaningful change or control. By contrast, an emerging approach known as “Augmented Translation” is puttin...

Our big theme for a 2013 report on Agile was that it had broken localization processes. Well, it’s déjà vu in 2021 because localization for cloud products, AI, and content types such as multimedia and AR/VR have now broken the Agile localization process. Time to regroup and make recommendations for how to proceed. Come hear the latest research on continuous localization at warp speed (based on 53 in-depth interviews!) with Rebecca Ray, Director and Senior Analyst at CSA Research.
