Digital Transformation of Contingent Labor

The way we work had changed long before the Covid-19 crisis. And with the recent pandemic, the way work gets done might be changed forever, permanently.

The role of the external workforce or the contract workforce was instrumental for organizations to thrive in the digital era. The recent shift in workforce trends as a result of the pandemic has further strengthened the case for a flexible and robust external workforce to succeed during the testing times.

Lose the Bucket and Turn on the Taps: The Rise of Translation as a Service

I like to think about translation like access to fresh water. Not so long ago — and still in many parts of the world — getting water was hard. You’d get up first thing in the morning, get a bucket, walk (sometimes for miles) and then come back and do it again.
