I'm trying to do some market research into the size of the language industry, with particular reference to English localisation (UK, US, CA, SAE, IN, etc.) Does anyone have statistics or resources as to how many independent freelancers work in localisation globally (seems impossible to get any estimates!) or the size of the market as a whole? Any relevant stats would help!

Have you had a look at the Common Sense Advisory website https://www.commonsenseadvisory.com/Home.aspx ?

I've had a look and spoken to them, they release a paper each year based on current market analysis but you need an annual licence to access it. Was wondering if anyone knew any other good resources?
