OS-specific manuals can be created from the same root source.
Publish Content in Multiple Formats
Format content as print-quality PDFs, highly stylized webpages for your helpdesk, and minimally formatted HTML for handheld devices.

International Search Engine Marketing
In all things web marketing, translation is not enough.
When creating content for another culture, there are a number of considerations that must be made beyond language translation to ensure that your message resonates. When launching an international search engine optimization (ISEO) campaign, international search engine marketing (ISEM) campaign, or international pay-per-click (PPC) campaign, there are even more variables to consider.
Have you developed multilingual keywords? Have these keywords been optimized properly on your localized sites? Are you checking your rankings on the search engine of choice in each of your markets? What’s your international link building strategy?
Translations.com is here to help assess the real and potential impact of every portion of your international search campaign. Whether you’re after an organic search rankings boost or want to launch a PPC campaign to target your new market, we’ve got you covered.
Our international search engine optimization and marketing services, which can be combined with any of our other language and business services to create a custom solution, include:
- ISEO/ISEM Consulting
- Copy Adaptation
- Search Engine Research and Validation
- Campaign Management
