					Enhance Your Website With Language Translation Tooll


With the advent of the Internet and the leveling of playing fields
through the medium of the World Wide Web, we have entered an era where
communication is possible even if the other person does not speak your
language. I am talking about the number of translation tools available on
the net these days. Never mind, the human translators where you have to
send a quote and get price. Nowadays, even that is automated. You can
send a quote online with your material and receive a price.

The Internet has enabled us to broaden our market and serve a larger
group of consumers. English was the primary medium of communication
before and the majority of the websites were in English. But apart from a
few countries, there were other countries which did not speak English. So
the world got divided into two groups, English and non-English speaking
consumers. So what was the best way to reach out to the other section of
the market?

The advent of translation tools made the life of website owner easier and
they could begin marketing their products and services to overseas
markets in non-English speaking countries. Babel fish was one of the more
popular tools used for a quick translation.

If you have a web page, you can get a wider audience with the site
contents converted to multiple languages. Language translation is easy
now with the Google translator or Babel fish, however these do not appear
as content native to your site. For a global site that I own, I had to
overcome this problem. Imagine if you could get a web page translated
with the click of a button. This is now possible using Google translate
to work behind the scenes and get your contents translated in real time.
If you have a HTML or PhP page you can get your web pages translated into
ten languages - German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese,
Korean, Chinese & Arabic. Additionally if you own a Wordpress blog site,
you can get your blogs translated as well.

Here are additional advantages to having language translation on your
site:

Increase traffic through foreign search engines

Submit your foreign language webpages to countries which speak these
languages and see your traffic double.

Multiply your content 10 times over. This content is not considered as
duplicate contents as it is in another language. It is all unique
content.

Communication is no longer a barrier. People speaking languages other
than English will still be able to comprehend what you have to offer.
This multiplies your chances of getting new customers.

Lesser competition. There is less competition is non-English speaking
countries as compared to English speaking countries.
The advantage of having an online translator is that it is instantly
displayed and using it does not cost you anything. With a combination of
a good marketing strategy, customer service and communication you can
take your website to greater heights. You just have to be willing to work
hard to make your online business a roaring success.
