Building a Well-Localized Web Experience
Increasingly, localization has become a significant element of long-term, global branding strategies. For Fortune 500 companies, the driving motivators for translating content are to meet local customer expectations, improve customer service, maintain or increase brand value, reach more customers in markets where they already have a presence, and address local market regulations. Localization requires companies to strike a balance between the preferences of a specific locale, brand identity, and enough return on investment to ensure a sustainable branding effort. Brand managers must understand what true localization is, know the resources available, and leverage those resources to streamline and manage the whole process. These steps will help ensure the company is reaching the target demographic and receiving ample response and return.
