Today’s software is built using agile methodology, which is superior at getting new features out fast, in contrast with waterfall. Many in the industry have talked about making Internationalization (i18n) and Localization (L10n) continuous, automated and in step with agile.
Yet, in a Lingoport survey last year, it was obvious that the industry still has a long way to go. For example, merely 8% of respondents thought they did an excellent job at measuring and managing i18n requirements. One respondent summed up the reality of the situation: “We do agile development but waterfall localization.”
Following up from last year’s effort, we are conducting a new 2019 industry survey. To that end, we invite you to take the survey and let us know your company’s level of adoption of continuous i18n and L10n.

The survey takes only 3 minutes. If you enter your email address, we’ll email you the results upon conclusion of the survey.
Plus, for each entry received we’ll donate US$2 to Translators Without Borders. So, please help us in accurately capturing the state of the industry while helping a good cause.
