In this three-part interview series, we get his thoughts on what makes BLEND different, how localization is changing, and his goals for the company in the coming years.

What is Enterprise Localization?

Localization is all about adapting products and services for new markets. Enterprise localization comes into play when businesses look toward global explanation. Targeting multiple international markets requires a multi-faceted localization strategy. 

The localization process requires extensive research. Businesses need to focus on globalizing their website for international audiences. Furthermore, they’ll need to retool their social media channels and use translation services for tor adapting documentation in new languages. Ultimately, it’s about adapting a brand for foreign markets. 

How Can Enterprise Localization Help Your Company?

Enterprise software and localization solutions make it easy for businesses to penetrate new markets easily. With localization, overcoming the language barrier is simple. What’s more, you can connect with your customers the right way, avoiding any cultural conflicts.  

By ensuring your marketing messages are always on point and on-brand, you establish trust with your audience and boost credibility. This naturally enhances the customer experience, helping businesses generate more revenues. Successful localization will also give you a competitive edge. When done right, it can help establish a brand in new markets in a relatively short period.
