As LSPs, we have experienced that over many years our professional standards and professional rates have been decimated by profit driven middlemen/agencies within our market. As a result many experienced and qualified LSPs have left the profession and they are replaced by bilinguals (untrained language speakers) by the middlemen, intermediaries or agencies. These agencies often charge hefty fees to the customer while they pay non-professional rates to LSPs.
We have a solution to this and we aim to bring back the professional standards to the clients and professional rates to LSPs through a digital platform by uniting under an ethical and democratically governed cooperative society. LSPs will be language service and booking managers at the same time within the cooperative setting, who understand the client’s/non-english speaker’s needs and logistics of the job.
