Translation matters

It’s never been easier to reach new customers from all over the world but being able to effectively communicate requires a bit more work. In the world of E-commerce, your traffic can be truly global, so the need to speak to people in a language they understand is imperative to your success

There’s often the assumption that having your E-commerce store or website in English only will be sufficient, but this simply isn’t the case. Did you know that around half of customers won’t visit your page if it’s not in their language? And even if they do click on your website, over 70% would be more likely to buy your products if the descriptions had been translated  into their own language.

Taking the time to translate your product descriptions and E-commerce store content into other languages could be the final barrier you need to break to expand into new markets globally.

Here at Contentech we have tens of native speakers with many years of experience waiting to translate whatever you need to open up a new world of E-commerce.

Using language as a tool

Nothing speaks to a customer deciding on an item in your store more than reading a product description in their own language. Instantly available, being able to converse in their native language provides customers with the chance to comfortably connect and engage.

By translating your content into a local language, you’ll open doors which would otherwise be closed. The chance to reach thousands more customers all over the world is as simple as offering your product descriptions, customer services and user reviews in a more accessible way.

Rather than being a block, language could be the key you need to unlock eCommerce success. By reaching out to new customers in their own language, you’ll instantly be ahead of your competitors who are only using English across all of their product and category descriptions.

We believe that language is a tool and when used properly, can be one of the most effective techniques to penetrate new markets when it comes to E-commerce.

Quality translation

Of course, translating your online store content can be done in lots of different ways but not all will produce the same result. A poorly worded translation is arguably worse than no translation at all. As well as being stiff and awkward, a poor translation may also include nonsensical phrases or misinformation – all of which could harm your brand.

Automated translation tools are useful for helping to decode occasional phrases or words that you don’t understand but they’re simply not designed to translate full content. Taken word by word, automated translation can miss the overarching meaning of the text and when read by a native speaker, it can sound extremely jumbled and incoherent. Product descriptions need to do just that – describe something accurately with a hint of sales talk.

It’s surprisingly affordable to get a proper translation for your whole range of product descriptions or user reviews, and in the long run it will pay for itself many times over. The potential benefits of human translation are manifold, and will set you apart as an E-commerce store that represents high quality.
