Common Sense Advisory’s Global Leaders research service includes:
·12 reports per year: Each month, clients receive a new, comprehensive report on a topic that is customized for language and globalization services buyers.

“When I founded the firm eight years ago, it was clear to me that buyers of language and globalization services have targeted needs for data and benchmarking on very specific topics within the realm of localization and global business,” commented Don DePalma, chief research officer at Common Sense Advisory. “The Global Leaders Research service empowers those individuals charged with localization tasks to directly link their efforts to bigger corporate issues that affect their organizations,” he added.
