Globalization Firms Go Mainstream

The globalization services and software industry has for years labored under the radar of the mainstream media. But this is gradually changing thanks in part to consolidation among top players like SDL and Lionbridge and investments by smaller players in marketing and PR.

And then there is a phenomenal success of Tom Friedman’s The World Is Flat which is awakening the public to the importance of this industry in helping companies expand globally.

Language Weaver and Welocalize are doing their part in raising awareness by earning a spot on two key industry lists…

Welocalize Makes the Inc 500
Translation services vendor Welocalize announced today that it made the annual Inc. 500 ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. Welocalize ranks No. 407 on the list, with three-year sales growth of 339%. This is the first year the company made this list and I doubt it will be the last.

Language Weaver makes Deloitte Fast 500 List
Language Weaver, a enterprise software developer for the automation of human language translation, has been named a Rising Star on the 2005 Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in North America.
