Your website is your window to the world and the door to your customers. Nowadays, no matter where you are, you can reach the whole world. Marketing and selling your products or services around the globe has never been easier, but the easier the logistics got, the harder it got to be relevant.
Did you know that the number of languages you need to reach a given share of the global market is constantly increasing? In 2017 companies needed to localize their website and products in 14 languages in order to reach 90% of the internet-accessible GDP, but they will need 17 by 2027.
Also, did you know that, according to an Economist survey, poor translations are considered one of the 4 factors that is most likely to cause the greatest misunderstanding in cross-border communication for organizations at a rate of 23%?
Localizing your website is a serious investment, no matter how big or small, and it should be treated like one. When tasked from our customers with building that door for their customers, we do our best to
- seamlessly integrate with their systems, thus minimize potential technical errors
- successfully convey their brand image without compromising their local presence
- translate with SEO optimization in mind
- perform linguistic and functional testing for a carefree go-live date
WordPress Localization with the WPML plugin
CGT Commit Global Translations Ltd. has partnered with the WordPress Multilingual Plugin (WPML) to offer smooth WordPress integration to its clients.
WordPress is used by more than 60 million websites, it powers over 20% of the entire Internet, including 34.6% of the top 10 million websites, and it is the most popular website management system in use.
WPML is a plugin used by 1 million sites, that extends the functionality of the basic WordPress CMS making it run multilingual.
Streamlining the translation process
Our partnership with WPML enables us to offer our clients a fully automated translation process for WordPress websites. Our clients using WordPress do not need to go through the hustle of manually exporting their content in order to send it to us for translation and then importing it back when the process is over. Also, it is no longer necessary to provide our team access to the back-end of their website.
The WPML plugin offers a pre-set, already streamlined workflow for the clients and our project managers to follow, thus saving a lot of time on both ends. The process of creating and updating multilingual website content has never been easier!
Clients can choose the content they wish to translate and into which languages, add their files to the cart and then with the click of a button send the content to us for translation.
