I am particularly happy to share this content-rich issue with you following the International Translation Day. I wish all of you loads of work, money and satisfaction out of this wonderful business of languages!
As we are learning to progress in the new-normal world, the language industry is also seeing new opportunities. We are witnessing newer kind of content, new media, new partnerships and new tools. Individual freelancers and LSPs both need to brace up and prepare themselves for the what this new future holds.
This issue talks about various aspects of this very preparation. Quality certification and its need is well elaborated by Sudheen of Crystal Hues. The firsthand experience of getting recommended for certification is shared by startup member, Founder Nikita Agarwal. Our guest of the month, MuqarramKhorakiwala, has candidly expressed the opportunities, the shortcomings and expectations the industry has from Indian language localisation service providers.
The first Quarterly Members Meeting of CITLoB was held to discuss topics of interest and Lalita Marathe and Pradeesh Joseph have kindly summarised the discussions for the readers of IndoVox.
We once again appeal the members to contribute their thoughts on relevant topics and their success stories for our IndoVox.
Hope you enjoy reading this issue.
