2018 Complimentary Executive Summary



One of the Best Resources for Your Business

The ALC Industry Survey is the only cost-effective survey for the language service industry that has such a depth and abundance of detailed data about companies worldwide.

Since 2004, the survey has been providing key data to Language Service Company (LSC) owners, helping them better strategize and grow. This completely confidential survey is a key resource to the language community and provides unparalleled insight into profitability, KPI, marketing, personnel, technology, business challenges, and pricing.



It’s One of a Kind

You can find some similar data in a variety of places, but it is usually only a top level overview, or you can only get comprehensive data on just one or two topics. With ALC, you get that depth.

And, even if you can find such extensive data, it is limited to one small geographical region. Although ALC represents the U.S. market, respondents to this survey span the world. The survey has data from the US, but also from the rest of North America, South America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.

You can afford this survey! Almost no one else can provide this much data, but you will pay far more for it. The ALC Industry Survey is a bargain based on how much value you will get from it.



Reasons to Fill Out the Survey

  • Companies that fill out the survey get the final report and data for free or at a discounted rate.

  • An hour of your time to fill it out is a small investment for the huge return in value of the report.

  • The more data that the survey collects, the more accurate the results and the analysis.

  • It is completely confidential; an independent  firm manages the survey and all data, and no one at ALC (including members, the board, or staff) can access any specific data related to any company.

  • Data from this survey is critical to the efforts of standards organizations such as ASTM and of advocacy groups such as JNCL-NCLIS.

  • Benchmark yourself against your competitors.

  • Learn about ongoing trends.

  • Discover new tools, technology, or other resources that competitors are using.

  • And we know that you are interested in pricing, but the ALC Survey can help you find your unique selling proposition to become more value driven.

The Association of Language Companies would like to thank charter member Randy Morgan for starting the ALC Industry Survey many years ago, and for working tirelessly to keep it afloat and grow it in those early years. We built upon his original vision, and there would be no survey if it were not for Randy.
