Whether you need to get a translated version of your website up and running with minimal development overhead and within a few days, or if you want a more controlled and well optimised integration of your translations with your website, we can help.
There are two key approaches to website localization that we offer.
Both involve a mix of tech and service solutions, and the right approach for your site will depend on various factors including your existing tech stack, your budget and your timeline to launch.
There are a lot of advantages to having the translations flowed back into your host Web CMS, PIM/PCM platform, or other data source for your website. These platforms are usually significant investments and come with a lot of powerful features.
Connectors facilitate easy transfer of content from a platform out to translation, and then pulling the translated content back and into the correct locales.
The table below compares the two approaches to localising your website with an indication of typical costs (actual costs for your site may vary depending on the volume of content your site has, and the subject area).
|On-the-fly Translation||Translation Connector|
|Typical implementation time||1-3 hours||7-8 hours|
|Developer work required||0-2 hours||7-8 hours|
|Search Engine Optimization||kinda||yes|
|Translations reside in host CMS||no||yes|
|Typical tech licence cost||£500 per yr*||£99 per yr*|
|Typical cost of high-quality translations||£2,500 per language**||£2,500 per language**|
We help clients map possible solutions and select the right one. Choosing the wrong technology solution and services partner can be difficult to unpick.
We offer you the benefit of our market knowledge and experience of implementation and running website localization projects, so that your organisation can avoid those pitfalls.
Regardless of the chosen approach to localising your website, there are technical setup decisions to make that will impact your site’s visibility and performance online.
From the choice of using top-level country code domain names, subdomains or folders, or setting up the right page structure, templates and language tagging, you can trust our knowledge and experience to help you speed up the process.
These requirements also have to balanced against user experience requirements. It’s always a good idea to have a user-centric design to enable your audience to find the information they need, and convert them into leads in the right moments. Combining the UX and technical requirements is often a challenge.
We will help you make decisions so that your site has the right foundation to build on, to enable success in all your online target markets.
