Our findings in follow up interviews suggested more that the maturity of the outsourcing industry in each of the countries is responsible for the sorting of the countries rather than a specific language correlation. It appeared to be an outsourcing corollary to 'nobody gets fired for buying IBM'. When specifically ranking language versus other selection factors it finished 3rd behind technical expertise and price.

Follow-up interviews did also lend credence to the idea that culture similarity is important, but determining what constitutes the relevant aspects of the culture that must be similar and scoring those proved to be beyond the scope of the survey.

Erik's name is spelled with a 'k'. It is in the article spelled correctly and incorrectly. Also, shoot me an email (ropremo_at_Y!) and I can send you a non-skewed version of that graphic.
