Boston, US/ London, UK/ Riga, Latvia – August 2, 2022 – Lokalise
, the leading continuous localization platform, today announced the results of its global research report about companies’ sustained growth strategies for 2022 and how critical localization is to realizing those plans.
With the current volatility of the financial markets, many companies are forced to reprioritize their growth strategies and goals. The data shows that localization is a safe and sustaining growth strategy because it enables companies to expand their customer base in a scalable way by serving more people around the world.
Lokalise commissioned Dimensional Research to survey 506 qualified participants with growth, product, or localization strategy responsibilities from numerous countries across five continents.
Some of the key findings from the research report include:
Expanding to new geographies is the second most important growth strategy for companies
85% of companies’ growth strategies require localization
84% plan to expand to new markets
87% agree localization is key for successfully entering new geographies
88% of companies localize products today, or plan to over the next 18 months
97% of companies report localization challenges including product issues, delays, higher costs, and errors
78% said a dedicated, integrated, and automated localization solution would be extremely valuable
“This report proves that businesses realize sustaining growth involves global expansion through localization,” said Petr Antropov, Co-Founder and CRO of Lokalise. “Increasing efficiency also becomes a priority when other growth opportunities disappear during an economic downturn. Localization comes out as a safe bet in addressing both: sustaining growth and increasing efficiency.”
