Typical answers, when asking why don't you offer your site in other languages, are that it's too hard with Weebly, it's too complicated, it's too expensive or I cannot serve my users in language that I don't understand. All these are only excuses! Weebly recently opened its App Center and you may find Localize Internet there to tackle the first three excuses. The fourth one is in your mind.
Can I offer my site in multiple languages if I don't understand all the languages?
Yes, You can! Picking up correct languages to your site, you will increase traffic tremendously. You don't have to worry about knowing all the languages but to make sure new people will understand enough to know what's your site or product is about. It's crucial for any business to demonstrate and tell their story in an understandable to create interest. If the interest disappears when coming to site and not understanding it they will not continue. Offering enough information in their language increases the interest - potentially buying the product or subscribing the service. It's very simple to translate Weebly website yourself with Localize Internet. For the languages you don't know Localize Internet offers machine translations as well as professional translations to have the site up and running in multiple languages quickly and easily.
Not all pages need to be translated. You may choose to translate your landing page and product page and leave out blog. Think of what is enough to create the interest. You may still offer your support only in one language but at least the knowledge and interest in there for user, visitor or buyer to continue further.
Simply to reach more people. Some may think that single language (e.g English) is enough - it’s most definitely is not. Some interesting facts:
- 3/4 more likely to buy if website is in their native language
- 52% of consumers think that native language is more important than price
- 72% spend most or all of their time on websites in their native language
