At a glance
“We figured that being a French company we needed to have the entire website in French, including the blog; our main audience could understand english, but logistics is a complicated subject for non-English speakers.”
Reaching home audiences
Bigblue, a logistics app, compatible with Shopify, PrestaShop, WooCommerce and Magento, streamline the delivery process for ecommerce businesses selling internationally.
A French company by origin they initially planned to have their website available only in English as it was the most obvious choice when it came to reaching a wider audience. However, they soon realized it also made sense to have their site available in their native language.
A lot of their customers are French and because logistics is a complicated subject they wanted their French audience to understand some of the issues they were raising in their blog. They wanted their content to be accessible to more people as their blog was mostly attracting traffic from English speaking countries.
Their first struggle when it came to going multilingual was that there’s no native multilingual solution available on Webflow. This meant their first attempt at adding additional languages to their Webflow site was to duplicate the pages of their website and manually translate bigblue.co.
Not only was it hard to maintain as they were releasing a lot of content, but they also realized it wasn’t great in terms of SEO doing it this way.

When looking into the options available they discovered Weglot as they found it was the only solution that could both translate a Webflow site and follow key multilingual SEO best practices.

A blog their whole audience can benefit from
