Website Translation – How to Earn More Money by Localizing Your …
By Donna J. Jodhan
Just a few suggestions for you on this topic. Many businesses often fail to localize their translations and as a result they miss out on generating more revenue. So many companies for example would develop websites that offer products and services to the Chinese market but where they go woefully wrong is when they use photos of Caucasians instead of photos of Chinese persons. Most consumers are known to react more favorably when they see products being advertised by persons of their race and/or culture.
So, if you are advertising to the Latino market, then you need to show photos of Latinos advertising products to Latinos and ditto for the Chinese market, the Indian market, and so on; and one last thing. Make sure to use the local language of the consumer market in question. Example, if you are advertising to the South American market, then you need to use the Spanish that is spoken in South American and not Castilian Spanish as spoken in Spain.
I am going to leave you with a really great reference to check out. One that will help you to get the picture more clearly. Please see below.
