Congratulations! Your company is a success; your website looks fantastic; there are many eager users ready to buy your products and services. But, only 17% of the world can read your website. What if that percentage increased to 50%, with half of the world’s population as your potential buyers. How can this be achieved?: by utilizing website localization services and translating your website into these 5 languages.
Website Localization Into Chinese
There are more than 1.1 billion speakers of Mandarin Chinese. This makes it almost equal to the number of English speakers there are in the world. Additionally, almost 900,000,000 users on the internet speak Mandarin Chinese. The opportunities for obtaining potential buyers drastically increase if your website is available in the 2 most widely-spoken languages in the world: English and Chinese. However, Chinese translation services for your website may prove to be even more beneficial than English. The annual user growth rate for Chinese is 2,650.4%, whereas English’s user growth rate is significantly less with a rate of 742.9%, another strong reason why you should consider website localization into Chinese.
Website Localization Into Russian
Interestingly, after English, Russian is the second most-used language online. Russian has a significant number of users as the language spans large swathes of the globe. Russia is the official language of four countries and is also widely-spoken in 19 other countries. Additionally, Russia is the largest country in the world by territory. With over 258 million speakers in the world, Russian translation services are something you should consider when seeking to expand your online presence.
Website Localization Into Spanish
After Russian, Spanish is the third most-commonly-used language on the Internet as well as the second most-widely-spoken language in the world, in terms of native speakers. There are currently 21 Spanish-speaking countries and it is the most commonly spoken language in the United States after English. If your website undergoes professional website translation services into Spanish, a large percentage of the US population will become potential buyers.
Localization Into French
French has historical roots throughout the world. These roots have stayed and this is shown by the sheer number of French speaking countries there are in the world today. Currently, there are 29 French speaking countries. French is spoken in 26 countries in Africa and is also still spoken in part of Canada. French is also the language of diplomacy and one of the official languages of the United Nations, European Union, international court systems, and others, making it a perfect candidate for website translation services and localization.
Localization Into Japanese
Among Japanese people, 93.8% of them use the Internet, which means that almost their entire population are active online users. Japan’s entertainment sector has bursted with the advent of mobile games and entertainment and Japanese fan bases are extremely active on the internet. In fact, Japan is one of the largest Internet markets in the Asia-Pacific region. As a result, investing in Chinese and Japanese translation services means that large sections of the Asia Pacific region are now potential buyers.
