Website localization (also known as l10n) is essentially the process of adapting your original website through language, design and cultural elements to provide a relevant experience for your new target audience.
Naturally, translation plays a core role in website localization. Adapting your website for different markets primarily involves taking into account the local language(s).
A website localization project can seem overwhelming at first, but it doesn’t have to be and the rewards of increasing your potential audience are significant.
Translation and localization are different however they go hand-in-hand and you can’t have one without the other. To define the terms:
Website translation is the process of translating the content of your website into different languages.
Website localization however, is the complete solution, where aspects such as formatting, image replacement and SEO are also factored in.
