"Having a corporate Web site in multiple languages is critical to gaining access to markets where other languages are spoken. If it’s your company’s goal to expand sales overseas or if you are just trying to find out which markets might be receptive to your company’s products, you should consider creating microsites to support your English-language site.
Microsites are specially crafted Web pages written in the languages used by the markets you want reach. The purposes of the microsite pages are to inform visitors about your company and its products and services in the language of the visitor’s choice, but more importantly for your company, the microsite will make your company “findable” in a Web search in other languages. A well written foreign language microsite will utilise the key words that are used by people searching for your company’s products in their languages.
Having a small amount of high quality content may be all your site needs to reach your potential customers. One of the greatest benefits of a multilingual microsite strategy is that you can drastically extend your company’s reach into multiple markets on a limited budget." *
Just a few web pages... it is all you need to gain access to markets where other languages are spoken. Your multilingual microsite will have the English version as the entry point. I will translate your company's core offerings and mission (3-5 pages : 'Home', 'Services/Products', 'About Us' and 'Contact Form') into French and/or Spanish and/or Brazilian Portuguese and/or Portuguese and/or Italian and/or German languages and I will connect/link all versions to each other (EN FR ES PT IT DE). My own microsite is a good example of this. I will provide you with 'metatags' for each page using all localised key words and descriptions that will assist with finding your microsite in Web searching. I will keep the basic formatting of the original design of your website (eg: fonts, formatting, scripts, etc - No graphics) so your visitor will be assured to be visiting a multilingual section of your web site. All pages will be publishable in the same way as your original website. Just upload them in your webserver and you are ready to go into global market...
