The Revolution in the Language Service Sector: The Need for Digital Transformation

{November 16, 2023}

A Change in the Language Service Industry

For over two decades, L.TXT has been a trusted partner in the language service industry. We have accompanied large and small companies on their journey, including many that have been with us since our beginnings. Recently, however, we have observed a worrying trend: Our clients, especially smaller firms, are losing long-standing clients, some of whom they had served for decades. This trend reflects a fundamental change in the industry and calls for a realignment.

The Change in the Traditional Model

The traditional business model of language service providers faces major challenges. The core of the problem lies in changes to the traditional model of language services. And these are due to the evolution of the industry itself. The classic model of language service providers, which has been successful for decades, is increasingly reaching its limits and no longer fits into today’s world. A key factor here is the increasing use of machine translations, which has a tremendous impact on the industry. The rapid development of machine translation and digital technologies has changed customer expectations. This trend has fundamentally altered the landscape of language services, as customers now often turn to machine translations for faster, more cost-effective, and in some cases, solutions of sufficient quality.

The Need for Digital Transformation

The future of language services lies in digitization. Language service providers must evolve into technology-based companies to remain competitive. However, this change requires a high level of technical know-how and experience in digital processes – resources that many traditional providers often lack. This is where L.TXT comes in: We have made it our mission to bridge the gap and pave the way for language service providers to enter the digital era.
