Localization in Oracle WebCenter Sites
By Christie Flanagan on Jul 10, 2013
Web site visitors have high expectations for the sites they visit. Increasingly, they expect to access your website and your content in their preferred language. Whether you serve a diverse local community or you compete in markets around the globe, the ability to engage your customers in their preferred language can mean the difference between business success and failure.
Engaging customers in their preferred language often means translating content from one language to another. Translation can be a complex and expensive process if not managed properly, so success implies having the tools to manage and deliver not only the various finished translated content, but also to manage the process of content translation.
With Oracle WebCenter Sites, organizations are empowered to translate and deliver their web presence into appropriate languages – as much or as little as needed. Granular control enables marketing to manage translation costs: translate a single article, a page or an entire site, as well as control of when to translate, and who or what service to use for each translation. The same business interface provided for content creation and contribution allows you to easily manage multilingual content as well as the translation processes. Simple click-to-translate and seamless integration with third party automated, crowd-sourced, and expert translation services provide an easy-to-use but deep integration of the translation process into site management.
