See the video: Multilingual Microsites: How To Unblock Your International Potential

If you are involved or would like to be involved in international trade, then you must consider the foreign language issues that you will have to confront.

1. Foreign Language SEO

  • Multilingual Microsites

According to Ethnologue, a database of world languages, as of 2021 less than 8% of the global population speaks English as their mother-tongue. As most people carry out searches all in their own language, without foreign language SEO you are missing out on 92% of your potential. Simply put: "If your site is not available in their language, you will not be found."

The quick and easy solution solution is to have your Multilingual Microsite. This will promote your goods and services to the world in 35 languages. Unlock your International Potential for less than £105 + VAT for the year to cover all 35 languages - just apply the Coupon TTS30DISCOUNT31122024 to have your 30% discount on the list price of £149 - VAT.
