IBIS Branding Website Localization Services
In today’s world, maximizing profit involves going and extending beyond national markets. Accessing an international customer base is crucial if a business wants to expand and participate in international trade.
‘Localization’ ties into to the act of altering a product to make it both usable and suitable to a target market. Website localization therefore refers to the process of taking an English, western-orientated, website and moulding it to conform to a foreign audience.
And because the Internet gives companies the ability to reach an international audience, many are realizing that a key step in successfully approaching and selling to an international customer base is through website localization.
Websites, such as those of multi-national companies, are often required to present their websites to a varied group of people. The first impediment is the language barrier. Since websites of multi-national companies, news portals, online auction sites, encyclopaedias, tailor to people of different linguistic areas, it is essential that they are able to express themselves properly. Simply translating the text from one language to another is not a viable answer. Much planning needs to be done prior to the launching of a new product or service. Local customs and taboos, cultural differences, and the right context need to be considered.
The answer to all these concerns can be found through IBIS Branding’s ‘Website Localization’ service. Through website localization, we make sure that your company’s website is not only translated, but is certain to meet the set requirements and the purpose of your customer base.
Additionally not only do our localization experts have extensive field experience, but also take care of quality assurance and regular updates from time to time in case of a change in the original website. Localizing audio and video, which calls for a fair amount of technical expertise, must be done as well. At IBIS Branding we take care of all your audio and video needs, adapting them to suit the palette of your designated audience.
