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 – http://espanol.geappliances.com/enes/
Taco Bell (Yum Brands) – http://tacobellenespanol.com/enes/
The State of Washington Department of Financial Institutions — http://www.dfi.wa.gov/ (click on espanol link)
Lumber Liquidators – http://espanol.lumberliquidators.com
BankAtlantic – http://espanol.bankatlantic.com
Dawn Foods — http://espanol.dawnfoods.com
“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.
