This French survey, which was first conducted in 2006-2007, is consistently answered by some 50 translation companies. This year, it clearly shows the complexity of the French market, with maturing translation companies and growing professionalism, but also with a clear distinction between the capital and the rest of the country. The results are freely available (in French) on CNET's website.
UK-headquartered translation companies are currently invited to participate in the 2015 UK Language Market Research conducted on behalf of the British association of translation companies ATC.
