Localization Testing in the Real World


Tapping into new revenue streams means avoiding taboos and legal implications

Businesses put lots of effort — and capital — into market expansion. Tapping into a new revenue stream is a great way to grow a business, but it also exposes it to substantial risk. A new market might have great use, or even an acute need, for your product, but that doesn’t mean a launch will be successful. A product that works flawlessly in one market might fail in another without proper due diligence.

Localization testing helps mitigate this risk by assessing the customer experience in the new market. The strategy is incredibly important, and incredibly nuanced — it’s no simple matter of translating languages and pushing the deploy button. What seems sensible in one culture might be confusing or even offensive to another.

Join our webinar to hear from our panel of localization testing experts. These experts will shed light on some common successes and struggles with localization testing to help you establish a strategy that works.
