Translated, a Rome-based language service provider (LSP), has released the 2022 Imminent Research Report, providing information on future trends in the field of localization.
The company announced the release of the report on May 25. In the 2022 Imminent Research Report, Translated compiles a series of articles, interviews, and other content to provide readers with detailed information about the state of localization and how it’s poised to evolve over the coming years. Named oXXIgen, the report highlights future trends in the industry, noting that the company expects to see major changes in the field over the course of the 21st Century. Localization buyers can access the report for free via Translated’s website.
“Understanding other cultures is a powerful means to see everything with a fresh pair of eyes,” said Isabelle Andrieu, co-founder and chairwoman of Translated. “It opens up a world full of possibilities and paves the way for empathy, communication, and uniqueness.”
Imminent serves as the company’s research center — in addition to the report, Imminent also offers other features, including a Language Data Factbook, an ongoing project that currently outlines linguistic profiles of more than four dozen countries throughout the world.
“With more than 6,000 languages spoken around the world, navigating multicultural communication can be daunting,” the company wrote in its announcement of the report. “Imminent collects knowledge from experts, interprets the findings, and develops its annual report to help businesses understand, facilitate, and ultimately, drive economic value.”
The company will also host a webinar on June 14, touching on some of the topics discussed in the 2022 Imminent Research Report. The webinar will include talks from language industry professionals, such as Salvatore Giammarresi, head of localization at Airbnb, and Vivekananda Pani, co-founder and CTO of Reverie Language Technologies, among others.
Giammarresi, who was recently interviewed in MultiLingual magazine, will discuss the future of the localization field. Other topics to be discussed include the metaverse, the neurobiological underpinnings of multilingualism, and design — all with an emphasis on future trends. Those interested in the webinar can register online at Translated’s website.
