Translation of websites requested very often. The internet has supported globalization and you can see that markets are growing ever closer together. This also presents numerous companies with language challenges. So not only the content on the website has to be translated, but also entire menu bars, navigation elements, etc. The translation of websites is nowadays a cost-effective method to reach international markets. English, German, French, Italian, Russian and Spanish are the most common second languages in Europe and many people can read and understand these languages. However, there are cultural differences that can lead to misunderstandings that can have a disruptive effect on your message. Interaction with you improves for the customer if he can communicate in the local language. For website translations – whether in whole or in part – rely on the Leikin translation center.
Many companies and organizations have already recognized the advantages of partial or full translation of a website. Although we recommend that you translate your website completely, you can of course also request this only for segments of your website or online shop.
Our approach to website translation
We generally use one of the following two approaches to translate your website:
– You can either send us the content to be translated, so that all encodings and markup languages have been removed (.txt, .doc, .rtf), or
– we translate the text directly from the source files (.asp, .htm (l),. php, .xml, java and many more). In the latter case, we will download your page, count the words and then send you a corresponding offer.
Translation of the graphic elements
When translating graphic elements (.jpg, .gif, .png) we can either deliver your translation in an Excel table so that you can assign the content within the company. Alternatively, it is possible to process the order via an external webmaster or DTP specialist (desktop publishing). If you prefer that we take care of this task, just send us your source files (.psd, .fla, ai, png, etc.) and we will make sure that all graphic files are set up correctly.
