Locaria will be hosting a seminar on Thursday 7th of September 2017.

Together with Locaria’s International experts, we will be discussing the challenges and complexity of a consistent linguistic strategy across all digital media, and the synergies between website localisation and online marketing. The event will cover all aspects of localising the content that is required to promote a brand internationally, from building compelling website content and marketing collateral to engaging with prospective customers through locally-relevant advertising activity.

We will also be sharing some insights and experiences from delivering multilingual campaigns for our clients, supporting the argument that localisation is a performance channel in its own right. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of why and how performance-driven localisation, and tailored linguistic support is not only ideal, but a must have to any multi-market and cross-channel online advertising strategy.
