Websites, Apps & Social Media
For a brief overview of how to translate a website, visit our FAQ page.
Because there are a variety of things to think about when translating a website, we have created a quick and easy website localisation checklist for you. This checklist lays out all the things you need to make decisions about before starting your website translation. For example, do you need different language versions to be search engine optimised for their respective markets? Will you need images reviewed for cultural appropriateness? etc.
We live in a digital world; something which has become even more obvious over the last year. Whether or not your actual product is digital, your website is more important than ever before. To put it bluntly, in most cases, your business’s online presence has become its only presence.
Every savvy business knows this, and shows it with the great care and attention they put in to building their original website, app and social media presence. But what then? What about your international clients and audiences, your global employees and partners? Don’t they deserve more than automated translations riddled with errors? Don’t you want them to understand your messaging, appreciate your brand and values, buy your products?
Driving growth for a major manufacturing corporation
A major global manufacturing corporation, part of one of the largest conglomerates in the world, were looking to push forward their substantial business operations in Europe. They required localised versions of one of their websites for several territories.
Guildhawk has been working for many years with companies that understand the value of localising their digital presence. We’ve worked with companies as different as Freightliner and the Saatchi Gallery, the former on website content and HTML testing, and the latter a culture-based rewrite for the Chinese market. We’ve partnered with digital-first innovators like MetaCompliance, and created APIs and platforms for Mitsubishi and global service specialists.
As a language and technology company, we have a long history of innovating in the digital realm, both for our clients and for ourselves. We know where the issues come from, and how to prevent them. We know what the average digital infrastructure is lacking, and how to fill those gaps.

If you are translating your website as a first step into new markets, but you’re not sure which countries might be the best fit for your business, download our Markets Guide. In this guide, we give an overview of 10 of the world’s biggest markets, with information on their cultures, economies, and business prospects. Use the information to narrow the field, and we can then perform more in-depth research based on your specific needs and growth strategy.
