Technology for successful cross-generational translation companies

generational companies are family businesses in which two or more generations have worked. These companies comprise of three elements: the older generation, the younger generation and the company itself (its personnel, equipment and systems). There are studies that indicate that the probability that family businesses survive after each succession drops to only 10%. We will review strategies for cross-generational translation companies and we will identify applicable technology for each strategy. This approach can also be implemented in companies with older and younger partners.
