The Drum Recommends is a free service designed by The Drum to help marketers find relevant, trusted agencies. Recommendations are based on reviews by the people best placed to judge their expertise – their clients.

Every year, The Drum Recommends receives thousands of ratings from advertisers. Marketers complete a survey that scores their agency’s performance, the quality and range of their services, as well as price. In order to become recommended for a service, agencies must receive a minimum of three client ratings.

To mark this week’s Deep Dive focus on Globalization on The Drum, we examined which endorsed agencies offered language and localization services – that is, helping to translate campaign and marketing assets into the right language for different markets.

The table below shows each of those companies, alongside their staff headcount and the locations of their offices.
