Skrivanek is the 3rd largest Eastern European language service company (LSP), and for the 10th year in a row ranked in the top 100 worldwide based on CSA’s 2020 data.
The language services industry is an estimated 50-billion dollar industry that essentially facilitates global operations around the world. Common Sense Advisory (CSA) annually researches verifiable income for language service companies and ranks them based on that data. As part of this web of 27,000 LSP entities from small local agencies to vast global enterprises, Skrivanek is one of the busiest and most successful.
“This is an extremely dynamic field, always changing and becoming more complex,” says Jaroslava Ouzka, Skrivanek’s Global Sales Manager. “There’s no field of study or industry that LSP services are not involved with. From profit-making to humanitarian causes, if there is more than one country or language involved, there are translators there.”
Study after study reveals the importance of reaching people in their own language. Whether explaining a product or a critical medical procedure, professional linguists are essential. New technologies and new challenges (such as the recent pandemic) have brought new elements into the formula of providing language services.
“We are always incorporating innovative advanced technologies and best practices,” Ouzka says. “But this means we are always adapting, investing in technology, and training our experts. We want to be ready to provide the absolute best language service in every situation and language pairing. And I think we are.”
Passion for language and for the work of connecting people through translation are qualities that define Skrivanek professionals. Consistently high LSP rankings verify the effectiveness of these experts’ teamwork. Our gratitude goes out to CSA for their ongoing industry research that promotes excellence, and to our staff for their tireless commitment to global communication.
