Governmental, public, and non-profit institutions face a constantly changing (and expanding) need for language services. Audio and video localization is essential serving multilingual and disabled groups at home. Moreover, these institutions may have to comply with National Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security Administration clearances, as well as supplier diversity mandates. On top of that, both government entities and NGOs may require content for refugee populations or populations in conflict zones, so that sourcing talents may be quite difficult. Finally, grants and funding for these groups must usually be tracked very closely – this can mean extra paperwork and bureaucracy.
For this reason, the main challenges for this industry are vendor on-boarding, which can take months to process; native-speaker casting; and paperwork compliance, which can sometimes double project management time.
