Website Localization and Internationalization Service
We don’t just translate – website translation is only one step in the process of taking it international. Simple translations of website copy is easy for us but localization is a whole lot more for your money! We look at every aspect of your website to make sure it behaves as people will expect when navigating through it in their own country.
Call us today to discuss what you need and how we can help.
Areas we cover in any website localization include:
- Content and Language – do all the words, phrases and metaphors work in the target culture? Localization adapts language, style, tone and message to suit the target locale.
- Pictures – Will your target audience expect lots of text or images? If images then we need to look at how they are used. Would a picture of a lady in a bikini drinking vodka be appropriate in a Muslim country?
- Navigation – do all cultures look at a website in the same way? No. The Western eye does one thing and the Eastern another. Good navigation is about good usability and localization has to adapt to local expectations to ensure visitors stay and your site.
- Data – remember not everyone thinks in Dollars and Euros. Localization looks at on-site data such as dates, times, currencies, phone numbers, units of measurement, forms and much more.
If you need our site reviewed as part of your internationalization plans, please give is a call. We’d love to help!
