Open source technology has changed the way enterprises work and create products and services for their customers. Linux, Android, MySQL, Chrome and Firefox are some of the most popular and used products built on top of open source technology. Open source offers new opportunities to language service providers as well with solutions for machine translation, CAT tools, file format converters, quality check tools and even project management software.
