“With a tech-savvy player like Localex at our side we believe that the Smartcat ecosystem will soon become the solution of choice for LSPs, freelancers and translation buyers in Turkey. Our research has found that the LSPs that migrated to Smartcat and leveraged its no-license approach to collaboration, as well as its payment automation solution, increased their bottom line by 25–50%. Another unique feature our ecosystem offers is the access to a global pool of freelancers and customers, which allows LSPs and translators to extend their reach far beyond their local markets. The sooner new suppliers position themselves in our ecosystem the more benefits they will reap from it in 2018.”
