Most websites are written in English – it’s the international language so it makes perfect sense. But wait a minute: if you didn’t speak English as a first language, wouldn’t you rather buy from a site written in your native tongue? You’d probably look for a website in the language you speak every day. Here are a few statistics which prove that point.
- People are four times more likely to purchase from a website that communicates in their own language (www.idc.com).
- Over 100 million people access the internet in a language other than English (www.glreach.com).
- Visitors stay for twice as long if a website is in their own language (Forrester Research).

Case Studies: Website Translation Services
Pitmans LLP, a UK based law firm, wanted to promote their new Business Visa website internationally. We translated their website into Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese and Simplified Chinese. We also ran a Global Usability Test on their site to ensure the translation worked linguistically and culturally.
“The team at Global Lingo were excellent throughout, providing a fast response to any query, turning around requests for content within tight time frames and adding value with their Usability service. We are now considering further projects with their support.” Pitmans LLP Head of Marketing
