New service to measure and analyze best practices and competitive differentiators across a broader sample of websites

BOSTON, MA, United States, 28-Jul-2021 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Many businesses want to delight customers around the world with a top-notch digital experience in their own language. However, a lack of knowledge and objective insights hampers their ability to convert their intentions into an effective experience and leaves their international customers with a sub-par experience. Now, global organizations can improve the global online customer experience with a new data product by CSA Research, the Localization Intelligence Analyzer, powered by LocHub. The Localization Intelligence Analyzer connects LocHub’s observed and crawled data to the research firm’s historical repository of data and insights; helping companies make strategic decisions that too often have been informed by anecdotal evidence and gut feel.

“LocHub uses the latest analytic and diagnostic software to provide near real-time intelligence. Think of it as a centralized, and user-friendly visual dashboard that offers a localization scoring system and points out errors you can address and remove. It’s as easy as inserting the URL of the website you want to crawl,” comments Rikkert Engels, CEO and founder of LocHub. “CSA Research’s Localization Intelligence Analyzer, powered by LocHub, allows global organizations to benchmark their performance and contextualize it based on a variety of factors to understand where they stand compared to their peers on multiple axes.”

Organizations use the data and analysis from the Localization Intelligence Analyzer powered by LocHub for:

  • Tactical Analysis: Benchmarks such as language or locale support and the depth to which the site has been localized help companies find and fix flaws in their global customer journeys and identify gaps compared to their competitors. These include performance lags, mismatched content, and other common and even exotic problems with multilingual sites.
  • Strategic Decisions: CSA Research can analyze the sequence in which languages have been added and analyze the incremental effect of language support on business objectives over time by correlating results with KPIs and other measures. By connecting that observed and crawled data to the research firm’s historical repository of data and insights, they can help companies make strategic, data-based decisions.

CSA Research is using LocHub’s unmatched crawling capabilities to expand its long-running Global Website Assessment Index and Digital Opportunity services.

“LocHub enhances and accelerates our firm’s ability to measure and analyze best practices and competitive differentiators across a broader sample of websites in today’s customer-focused digital experience,” adds Dr. Arle Lommel, senior analyst at CSA Research. “It broadens the reach of our empirical data that our clients use to inform their strategic decisions concerning market entry and support in global markets.”

Foreign Translations, Inc. has announced the launch of its new Spanish websitehttp://espanol.foreigntranslations.com. The new layout is specifically targeting Spanish speakers who have a need for translation services. The website will facilitate Foreign Translations, Inc.’s desire to reach the Hispanic market in the United States, Mexico, South America and other Spanish speaking countries of the world. Foreign Translations, Inc. values its multilingual customer base and appreciates the fact that they would like to conduct business in their own native language. This website works to accommodate them.

With the Hispanic population growing to 42 million in the United States, Foreign Translations, Inc. http://espanol.foreigntranslations.com believed that it was the right moment to provide those who are not native English speakers the opportunity to navigate its website as easily as those that do speak English. Visitors to the website will be able to read about Foreign Translations, Inc. quality assurance and guarantees, request quotes, and read about its translators, and processes and pricing. As with every project completed by Foreign Translations, Inc., it makes certain that it surpasses the standard requisite. With this, Foreign Translations, Inc. ensured that all of its company material, f r o m brochures to proposals, is translated into Spanish. As a result, its Hispanic clients are guaranteed to receive all company information in their native language. They will also have a native Spanish speaker available by phone if they need to speak with a live person. According to CEO, Ken Zwerdling, “We have developed a business model where the entire customer experience (keyword search, website, colors, navigation, checkout, company brochures, proposals and even customer service) is in the native language of the requestor.” Zwerdling says, “We are excited to have the opportunity to work with the entire Hispanic population of the world.”

When creating the new website, http://espanol.foreigntranslations.com, Foreign Translations, Inc. determined to develop a new and unique site, rather then just translate its current English website. A great amount of time was devoted to researching preferences in the Spanish market, and customizing it for the Hispanic market. Everything f r o m the color schemes to the images were selected based on how well the Hispanic market would receive them and connect with the company. Other key features of the new site are the ease of navigation so that visitors can quickly download the web pages, and the research behind identifying a hosting provider that would ensure fast connectivity. Foreign Translations, Inc. also extensively researched cutting edge Search Engine Optimization and Multilingual Search Engine Optimization techniques and practices to ascertain that the Spanish language website will be identified by the global Spanish search engines, including research regarding commonly misspelled Spanish words. According to Internet Marketing Director Daryl Woods, “The success of the website starts with the research and paying attention to every little detail. Researching, developing, and implementing the rules of persuasive architecture, copywriting and calls to action combined with search engine marketing and optimization, give our website the groundwork for success.”
