Dutch Website Localization

You already know that to sell to Dutch customers, it's best to speak their language. It is widely recognized that localizing your website is by far the most cost effective way of increasing the client base for your e-commerce site or web application. So, if you're looking to enter into the Dutch market, it makes sense to start with your website.

Media Lingo has years of experience localizing websites for a wide variety of businesses. Whether your website consists of 20 or 200,000 pages, we can offer a complete Dutch localization service. We translate in all programming languages and formats including HTML, XML, PHP, Java and JavaScript. We then deliver it back to you in the same format so all you need to do is upload the site. We may also be able to work directly in your CMS system. Contact us to discuss the options.

Our Dutch Localization service encompasses:

Localization goes a step further than translation - it's about adapting your software or website to the needs and expectations of the target audience. This is considered especially relevant for games providers and online retail businesses, though it is equally beneficial for service providers and any other businesses on the Web, as the adapted content can give your company the edge over the competition.

Factors we take into consideration when localizing your content are:

  • Correct use of spelling variants
  • Adaptation of graphics, for example where maps are used or images contain text
  • Use of local currencies and time
  • Formatting of date and time, addresses, phone numbers and postal codes
  • Choice of colors in line with cultural conventions and associations
  • Use of different business models
  • Writing direction and lenght of text
  • Capitalization and other writing conventions
  • Names and titles
  • Weights and measures
  • Official numbers (such as those assigned by governments)
  • Decimals and use of comma's and periods in numbers
  • Search Engine Optimization

If you're looking to localize your website, give us a call. We can both create and maintain multilingual websites. Whatever technologies you might be using, we'll find an efficient solution to incorporate the Dutch language version into your design smoothly.
