Outsourcing is beneficial when translation quality is important, and the existing staff doesn’t have the necessary capacity, experience, or technology to do it internally. Another common reason to outsource happens when project deadlines are near, and frequent content updates require fast translation, concierge-level service, and increasing cost-efficiencies over time.

Discover the Disadvantages of Outsourcing Translation

Insourcing saddles companies with more accountability and work but gives them full control over the translation process. However, when translation is not a core competency within a company, costs increase quickly. Beware of $100,00s in hidden costs spent on staffing, translation, web development and project delays. It typically takes 12–18 months to publish multilingual websites in-house. Companies need to consider the opportunity cost of generating revenue now, versus a year and a half from now.
