Spend Matters 50/50: Lionbridge Technologies – A Provider to Watch in 2015

100 companies - 100 days

We announced here and here our two (not ranked) lists: Spend Matters 50 To Know and 50 To Watch firms for 2015/2016. In the first case, this is our view of the 50 solution provider type organisations in the procurement industry that every senior procurement leader should be aware of and understand. The 50 To Watch are the up-and-coming firms  - those with interesting and relatively new solutions for our market. The 50 To Know are the key organisations in our industry that procurement executives need to have on their radar.

Having announced the lists, our US colleagues are now featuring each of the 100 firms in turn with an article giving an overview of each, with some headline Spend Matters thoughts on them. So on this site we will be giving you a brief extract of the US article, plus adding our own comments where we have anything useful to add from a European perspective. Sometimes we do, sometimes we don’t!

Here is what our US colleagues had to say about Lionbridge Technologies:

Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. is a hybrid service and technology provider, specializing in language translation and localization solutions and services (with additional solutions and services for software testing and data management) ... Lionbridge services and solutions are based on both people (including large numbers of contract language translation/localization professionals) and a growing range of technology applications (including machine translation and crowdsourcing) ... Services and solutions can range from limited service engagements or projects to overarching service agreements with large global enterprises (under which Lionbridge will address large portions of the company’s translation and localization requirements, traditional and digital). Services and solutions are also organized to meet unique needs across different vertical sectors.

There's more on what our US colleagues have to say about Lionbridge here, but in Europe ... well, I have not come across them, to be honest. They have offices in 14 different European countries, which is impressive, and being in the translation business, I think we can assume they have an international outlook! But you will need to read our US article for more, I can't help you much here.
