Do your website visitors speak a language other than English? Are you located in a diverse area where people speak multiple languages? Do you have offices in multiple countries? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you’re missing out on a huge opportunity if your website is only in English.
How to Make Your Website Multilingual:
There are two basic ways to make your website multilingual:
- Add additional content to your site in other languages.
- Use a translation tool to automatically translate the content on your site.
Both options have their pros and cons. Adding additional content requires more effort but the quality of the translation could be more accurate than using an AI-based translation tool. The translation tool is easier to implement and doesn’t require you to have to keep multiple sets of translated content in sync, but the resulting translations may not be as accurate as copy translated by a native speaker.
So choosing the right approach depends on a number of factors including your budget, the number of languages you need to offer, and the quality of the translation you need. We can help you figure it out with one of our complimentary consultations. We’ll show you the options and help you pick what’s best for your situation.
