Building Web Sites for the World


The Web makes it incredibly easy for you to communicate your message to anybody with an Internet connection and a browser, no matter if they’re sitting in a café in Moscow’s Red Square, in a farmhouse in Ohio, or in an Israeli classroom. Well, there is one tiny issue: only about 6 percent of the world’s population speaks English natively.1 The rest speak Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, German, French, or one of several dozen other languages. Therefore, if you’re interested in truly reaching a global audience, you need to think about creating a web site capable of not only speaking the visitor’s native language but also conveying information using the visitor’s native standards of measure (notably, currency, dates, numbers, and times).
