When your business strategy involves expansion into a new country or region, it’s time to think about website localization. A translated site that is accurate, culturally sensitive and comprehensive helps you deliver a satisfying customer experience. It also drives brand awareness, growth and a competitive advantage.
Because website localization is a major undertaking, it’s important to find the best approach. Considerations range from translation speed and scalability, to technology integration and automation.
