The goal of this survey is to create a comprehensive picture of workplace issues and policies related to gender and family in the language services arena. If you sell, purchase, develop, or otherwise use translation, localization, or interpreting services and technology, please fill out the survey. We will use the data to benchmark the language services sector against comparable studies from various industries. We will also identify any regional similarities and differences within the sector itself. The full results and analysis will be free to the public.

It will take you approximately 20–30 minutes to complete the survey.

The information that you provide is confidential. By participating in this survey, you grant us permission to use the information you provide in aggregate form for analysis purposes. We will not disclose individual answers or comments and will not provide your answers to third parties. We also will not associate information that could identify you personally – such as your job title, department name, or e-mail address – with any results. We ask for your e-mail address for the sole purpose of informing you when survey results will be available for download. If you have any questions about how we use this information, please contact us at

This survey uses the terms “female,” “male,” “man,” and “woman” to  refer to the gender a person identifies with, which may be distinct from their biological sex. These terms represent common gender identities, but we recognize that they may not reflect the experience or identity of all individuals. When encountering these terms, please consider them in terms of which one is the closest fit for individuals.

The survey concluded on February 14, 2017 but we are keeping it open until February 21 to build results for a few countries. Results will be published in April 2017 and will be available at no charge on the Common Sense Advisory website as well as through various organizations active in the language services area.
