Comtec Translations follows own advice and launches multilingual website.

A translation specialist has been following its own advice to produce a multilingual version of its own site with the help of a Coventry web design firm.

Leamington Spa-based language expert Comtec Translations has teamed up with web designers Image Plus to produce three different language versions of its own website.

Comtec enlisted the help of Image Plus to help design English, French and German versions of its website and there are plans to add even more languages in the future.

Sophie Howe, from Comtec Translations, said: "We have been conveying the benefits of having multi-language websites to our customers for many years and so we knew just how important it was to get it done properly ourselves.

"People often think this can be a drawn out process but recruiting expert designers, such as Image Plus, makes the process both quick and efficient.

"As an exporter the benefits of translating your website can have a significant effect.

"Research has shown businesses are up to three times more likely to buy from you if they can access the website in their own language."

Comtec and Image Plus have also been working together to offer other companies multi-language websites with full content management systems.

Alan Hartin, managing director of Image Plus, said: "We were delighted to work with Comtec on this project and we are pleased with the final result.

"When trying to attract customers on the internet it is crucial to make websites as easy to navigate and understand as possible, and the best way of doing that is to enlist expert help."
