LSP Back-office

Today, idioma® provide support to many Language Service Providers (LSPs) around the world. A typical LSP usually outsources work to its own translators as a preferred choice, but this is not always possible.

Serving LSPs as a Back-Office

Especially smaller and medium-scale LSPs need someone to turn to when:

  • Suppliers become sick or go on holiday
  • Projects with file formats you cannot handle pop up
  • You experience unexpected peaks in demand for specific languages
  • Your clients start demanding extra quality management
  • Projects are too big with too short deadlines
  • Clients require odd language combinations

Call us in case of an emergency and outsource translation to idioma. We offer a wide range of in-house developed services and solutions to LSPs and translation agencies that improve the workflow and final result. These have enabled us to improve capacity and manage emergencies that other LSPs may face.
