How to Plan & Budget for Localization Projects

How to Plan and Budget for Localization and Translation Projects Whitepaper

Did your previous translation and localization project slip, exceed its delivery schedule or did not meet your end-users’ quality needs? We often hear complaints about vendors that failed in one or all three requirements: Budget, Schedule and Quality!

Not at GlobalVision, our yearly surveys, consistently show that we can meet all 3 criteria 98+% of the time!

Let’s face it, to succeed in today’s business environment, companies in all industries have to think globally. The ones that don’t will ultimately be taken over by the ones that do, or perish. Thinking globally means that you have to release product internationally, on time and with the quality that international users expect! This whitepaper presents you with straight forward metrics that will help you determine the budget and schedules needed for your translation and localization projects to succeed. Don’t request a translation bid without reading it first!
