Internationalization is the process of getting a website ready for localization into any language, locale, and culture. Thoughtful adjustments and planning made early and along the way during the website development process vastly improve the globalization of your products.
Knowing how to apply internationalization best practices speeds up time to market, significantly reduces cost, helps mitigate risk, and reduces stress on internal resources. We support clients with all stages of this process.
Just translating text is not enough—it needs to be translated with locale and language in mind. We provide industry-specialized resources in both services and technology. We can work with virtually any resource file format and even have direct integration with version control systems and code repositories to ensure fast, automated, and seamless file extraction and delivery. We also provide visual localization tools to offer both translators and reviewers contextual information with live screens or screenshots.

Frequently asked questions
Website localization is important for reaching customers in new markets to expand your business. While translating words is a good start, a website really has to be localized, meaning that all content, graphics, and images are culturally and linguistically appropriate for the target market.
Website localization helps companies attract new customers, increase brand loyalty, enhance the user experience, and improve their communication, ultimately leading to more sales.
We follow a 4-step process:
1. Internationalization - prepare for localization
2. Localization - adapt all content and imagery for a target language and locale
3. Testing - make sure the website functions correctly
4. Search Engine Optimization - make the website findable on search engines
Many factors play into the cost of website localization, including the language type, complexity, number of visuals, internationalization, testing, and more.
