      "When Outsourcing, the “natural” process is to start small and grow the engagement over time "

      "Once you get the same results by outsourcing, you no longer want to pay extra "

      "A freelancer may come cheaper, but maybe it’s not a bad idea to pay a little extra for your peace of mind "

      "Investing in technical and language training has proven to be a successful factor in supporting establishing bridges between clients and the team "
