Software project offshoring is a rapidly growing trend. With this rapid growth, the software engineering research community is facing many challenges like cultural differences, linguistic problem etc because offshore software development is largely different from co-located software development OSD. This variance in software development nature has introduced many challenges. One of them is communication gap between client and offshore vendor. This paper evidences indicate that many problems like time delays, over budgeting etc are directly rooted from this communication gap and some new risks are also introduced by poor communication in OSD offshore software development.
