Did you know that a visitor is more likely to stay twice as long on your website if it's in their language?

If your audience is spread across the globe or serves customers in multiple languages within a single country, then you need a multilingual website. So how do you support this need to have content in multiple languages? First, you need a good web content management platform. Then you need a good translation management system.

SaaS is definitely about cost-savings, at least upfront, but it's also about handing over the work required to keep your Web CMS environment up and running to people who are experts and leaving your IT resources to look after other important aspects of your business.
