Exclusive PAB Languages Offers

Complimentary non-obligatory website check

Multi-lingual website is a website where the content is written in more than one language. The information displayed in different languages is often the same but should be tailored for different audiences.

Website localisation isn’t simply translating a text; it is adapting it to the local culture. Internationalising is moving a site from single-language focus to a more flexible, global perspective. Here are our tips for internationalisation and localisation of your website and web application.

We suggest to our clients that they:

  • Leave extra space – The length of words varies from language to language. Content written in one language may take up more or less space on the page than another language.
  • Don’t use machine translations – translation tools, are not natural speakers and often their translations sound that way.
  • Avoid abbreviations – some languages do not have abbreviations (e.g. Japanese, Arabic).
  • Plan for right-to-left – some languages read from right to left, so if your application is in languages like Greek or Hebrew, plan for the layout to be reversed.
  • Be aware of punctuation and symbols – rules for punctuation differ from one language to another.
  • Be aware of colours – in some countries, red means love. In others, war.
  • Be aware of icons – like colours, don’t assume an image means the same in different cultures.

The culture-focused website is your passport to international business.

If you would like to book a free website check, please contact Ruta Rubina.
Telephone: 07834 453 283

The complimentary website check is available exclusively to EMITA Members during the British summer season, and from 1st September 2019 charge of £429 + VAT per language will apply.
