Most companies recognize the value of serving global online customers with localized websites. But placing the burden of translating, deploying and operating a multilingual website on your IT team is inefficient, risky and costly.
Your developers were hired to provide solutions to keep your flagship primary-market website running smoothly. If their workload is anything like developers’ at most other companies, they’re already overwhelmed with a backlog of tasks.
Your team doesn’t have the extra time to dedicate to managing additional websites in new languages—not to mention the work needed to set up a new server, develop solutions and workflows needed to detect, translate, and load content, build an API, and so on.
Besides time, it’s likely that the members of your IT team also lack the skills and knowledge required for these specialized tasks.
Asking your developers to take on a website translation project is an inefficient use of their time and expertise.
Asking your developers to take on such a monumental project is an inefficient use of their time and expertise, and opens a veritable Pandora’s box of risks and costs. With so many intricate technological pieces and workflows required to build and maintain a localized website, the failure of one could bring the whole thing crashing down.
The side effects can be disastrous: poor user experience from partial translation, broken conversion funnels and other preventable issues can delay or outright derail your efforts to expand to new markets.
These inefficiencies lead to ballooning costs as extra resources, solutions and technologies are brought in to patch the leaks.
Thankfully, all of these disasters can be avoided with a great localization vendor.
