New Web Launches: Language Management Industry Flourishes

The surge continues—in website language adaptation. According to Will Fleming of MotionPoint, an increasing amount of high profile Fortune 500 companies are launching Spanish-language sites, noting that his company has signed deals with two Fortune 500’s in the past week. Here is a list of new launches announced by MotionPoint:

General Electric Appliances –

Taco Bell (Yum Brands) –

The State of Washington Department of Financial Institutions — (click on espanol link)

Lumber Liquidators –

BankAtlantic –

Dawn Foods —

“We continue to see a significant and growing demand for robust Spanish-language website capability.  There are two key drivers of this demand:  (i) companies whose websites are strategic to their business (e.g., transactional, integral to the brand), and (ii)  clients who benefit from reaching a multi-lingual market quickly and with fully functional sites (i.e., 3 months or less),” says MotionPoint Vice President Ben Field.

In terms of demand by language, market and region, Spanish continues to represent the highest demand, followed by a large and growing demand for Asian languages, says Field.
