Language service providers (LSPs) have come a long way in recent years thanks to technological advancements. As we look ahead this year, it's clear that LSPs will continue to play an essential role in the global economy, helping businesses communicate effectively with customers and partners worldwide. Technology will continue to play an integral part in that.

One of the most significant changes we expect to see in 2023 is increased use of machine learning and artificial intelligence in the language services industry. As technology advances, LSPs can automate tasks such as translation, localisation, and language verification. This will increase efficiency and reduce costs whilst protecting the overall quality of language services. The level of quality associated with human interpreters and translators remains unique and unmatched. However, paired with machine learning and AI, the pairing has the potential to create an incredibly effective duo.

Another trend to watch for in 2023 is virtual and augmented reality in language services. These technologies can revolutionise how we communicate, making it possible to interact with customers and partners in a more immersive and natural way. For example, virtual reality could be used to provide immersive language training. In contrast, augmented reality could improve communication in real-time. This is happening in the process of teaching and translating. Not just in the classroom but when it comes to travelling. Instead of looking up the translation to a Spanish menu or an Arabic Street sign, you could point your phone at it; it does the job for you.

In addition to these technological advancements, businesses must adapt to changing customer needs and expectations. As more companies move their operations online, there will be a growing demand for language services that can help businesses to communicate effectively in the digital space. This may include services such as website localisation, social media management, and SEO optimisation. With the developments in AI and digital search, consumers now have more options to find the info they need quickly and precisely.
