Exploiting the Potential of eCommerce in Europe with Website Translations

Can you break into the market?

The internet seems to be omnipresent in modern life. People rely on it to help them with many different tasks and shopping is no exception. Consumers are increasingly making use of the web when they are on the lookout for goods and services.

Meanwhile, as a business, you might have switched on to the benefits of selling your products abroad via cyberspace. It is quick and simple to communicate with consumers based in other countries now and you may be able to boost your profits in this way. By enlisting the help of a trustworthy translation agency, you can ensure that you’re able to get your point across to your target audience effectively.

The power of the web

Highlighting the power of the internet as a commercial tool, the Interactive Advertising Bureau Europe (IAB Europe) recently revealed that 426.9 million Europeans use the internet and they spend an average of 14.8 hours online per week.

Meanwhile, four in ten web users polled agreed that the way in which a brand communicates online is important.

More European Stats

In addition, it was revealed that 96 per cent of European web browsers research online for purchases, while 87 per cent shopped for products in this way.

Also, nearly half (48 per cent) of respondents noted they use the internet while they watch TV.

Expert analysis

Commenting on the findings, the IAB’s Alison Fennah said: “The ever-wider variety of devices that people use to access online content and the degree to which they do this while using other media shows the deep level of engagement consumers have with the internet today.

“For instance, many Europeans are clearly using the web and watching TV simultaneously, and a third of those are actually consuming complementary content. Those companies that understand and adapt to these changing consumption patterns will be the ones that succeed in the future.”
