What is website internationalization?

The Internet means we’re more connected than ever. People can purchase products or services from anywhere in the world and when you’re thinking about entering new markets from a business perspective, you’ll likely have come across the term internationalization.

Website internationalization or for those more familiar with the term i18n, is the process of ensuring your website is set up to handle different languages and your overall website architecture is able to accommodate these multiple languages.

You need to navigate the process of translating, storing and ultimately publishing the multilingual content of your website. Your CMS is the focus of your website internationalization project and i18n is the way of enabling you to then easily localize your product and the content of your website.

What does internationalization involve?

  • Making it possible for you to display the content of your website in different languages and locals is the first step and therefore creating a website architecture that doesn’t involve duplicate pages or websites

  • Your localized website content should live under the same URL within language specific subdirectories or subdomains to avoid duplicate content penalties from Google

  • Setting up hreflang tags within your source code to help Google determine both the language of the page and which region it is intended for

  • Setting up language redirection to display the right language for your website visitor


  • Adapting your website architecture to allow for the different word length of the languages you’ll be adding

  • Being able to display, hide or adapt part of the website depending on the language

  • Designing for right to left languages
