Translating a web site into another language may sound easy and it can be done without even knowing the other language. However, it’s not something to be taken lightly–there are a lot of other considerations if your online business in that language is going to be successful. It’s important to stay away from using automated tools to translate the site; rather, use local translators who fully understand the business in their country and make sure you have local sales staff to back up that business.
