This entry we will be discussing the importance of language translation on your global eCommerce site. To convert sales it’s best to provide a website in the local language of the country where you want to target. At a minimum the help content should be offered in the local language, and the rest of your site should be in simple English. The level of English should be similar to the major US newspapers, which are written at about the sixth grade level.
