What is Language Service Provider or LSP? Let’s take Horizon Zero Dawn. As an example, in this game, when you want to buy new stuff, or you want to upgrade your armor, you go to merchants and for money, they give you what you want, they give you the service. So in a way, this is what the language service provided us. Of course, they don’t do anything with armor or they don’t sell you arrows to your bow, but they specialize in language services or providing localization to the clients. So with practically means is that you come to them with your request when you want to translate something or you want to localize your software or your app because you want to give your product or service to people around the world in their native language so that they understand as well.
