    Translation has been growing for several years now. Companies need it a lot as they need to grow outward if they want to stay in business. This means opening new markets which requires a lot of translation. People move around a lot so a lot of countries are pressed to get their services translated for various ethnic groups. One such example is the Obama care website fiasco, which wasn't properly translated into Spanish.
