You may have heard about the importance of multilingual SEO and website localisation. In this blog, discover how these easy-to-implement aspects of your digital content can boost your international reach.
Making digital content for the wider world
In a nutshell, localisation and multilingual SEO efforts involve tailoring your content to suit international audiences. It is important to listen to your customers’ needs, and if they speak a different language, this becomes one of them.
Common Sense Advisory surveyed 2,430 web consumers in eight countries to learn about how language affected their purchasing behaviours. It resulted in some fascinating results.
72.1% of consumers spend most or all of their time on websites in their own language. Whilst 72.4% of consumers said they would be more likely to buy a product with information in their own language.
The most surprising outcome of the survey was that 56.2% of consumers said that the ability to obtain information in their own language is more important to them than price.
The key takeaway? More than half of consumers are willing to pay more if you are willing to give them information in their own languages! It’s time to reflect on your own website. Is your content geared towards these findings?
Optimising your online presence
Translating, transcreating and localising your content is the first step to international success. The potential return on investment means it is a no-brainer for many expanding companies. When embarking on this digital journey, keep these benefits in mind to focus your content creation.

Improve your chances of ranking for a specific region
You’ve identified that your product is hugely applicable to a specific region of Norway. With deliberately localised digital content, you can improve your ability to connect with this specific customer base.
