Website Translation- Make your website understandable to an international audience

As more businesses look for the opportunity to trade with all countries dotted around the globe, many are now looking to a language translation services in order to make that connection possible. For many businesses, the ability to get into the market within most of the world is just not possible, which leaves a large portion of the market untouched by that particular business. With the introduction of the Internet, businesses have been able to allow more potential customers to discover their products and services. However, as some businesses have their website in only their native language, discovering that more than 200 million web users speak either French, Italian, German or Spanish, shows just how many potential customers are being missed due to the communication barrier between business and customer.

In order for a website to work and enable sales to occur from foreign markets, it needs to be in the customers own language. This enables the customer to know all the information he or she requires about the product, and also allows for them to leave you feedback if necessary. Statistics show that web users are more likely to purchase from a website which communicates in their own language, which will be because they have been given the opportunity to read all the necessary information. They also spend double the amount of time on the site than usual when it is in their native language, which gives the possibility of multiple sales/interest. The more a customer knows about a product or service, the more likely they will be to give you a sale. If they are left confused due to a poor quality translation or no translation at all, they will be less likely to be interested or could be left embarrassed for misunderstanding your website. Across the world, two thirds of Web users actually don’t speak English, which shows you just how much traffic your site and business is losing due to it’s limitation for many potential customers.

Although good web designs, images and diagrams all add to the overall effect and impression which you will be able to make to those who visit your site, it is primarily the text which you include which will help sell your business. By using a website translation service, many businesses have now been given the opportunity to reach the larger portion of the market than they were unable to before. In order for it to be successful, you need to ensure that the translation of your websites are as good in quality as your English website and ensure that it does the best possible job it can to attract the correct target market. A good quality website translation will not only help you in reaching overseas customers, but also it gives you the possibility of gaining overseas business leads as well. Using translation services for your website will not only help you in the expansion of your business ideas and possibilities, it is the first step you need to take in the hopes of making your business global.
