Frederick, Maryland – October 11 – Welocalize, global leader in innovative translation and localization solutions, is a sponsor at the upcoming charity event to raise awareness about the transformative work carried out by The Aslan Project, a non-profit organization working to improve access to pediatric cancer care in low-income countries.

Welocalize Adds Baidu to SEO Global Ranking Capabilities

Frederick, Maryland – October 10, 2017 – Welocalize, global leader in innovative translation and localization solutions, has expanded its SEO global ranking capabilities to include Baidu, China’s largest search engine. This new functionality enables global businesses to successfully establish themselves online in Chinese markets and monitor the performance of their China-targeted digital marketing, SEO and e-commerce activities.

“Getting your site optimized for Baidu is crucial to any global organization driving digital marketing campaigns targeted for Chinese markets. Baidu has a search engine algorithm which has some distinct differences to Google’s and it is vital to understand these in order to achieve visibility in China” said Owain Lloyd-Williams, APAC Lead at Welocalize’s Multilingual Digital Marketing Agency, Adapt Worldwide,. “Adding Baidu to our proprietary search ranking capability enables clients to see how their website is performing in China. This is something which puts us ahead of the game given the limited availability of reliable Baidu SEO tools outside of China. This also expands our portfolio of multilingual digital services for organizations looking to enter the APAC region. Our experts can identify the appropriate keywords that target markets are searching for on Baidu, adapt websites accordingly and provide analytics on how sites are performing.”

The Chinese economy has grown in double-digits over the past few years yet Western companies often find it a challenging market to enter, especially if they have little or no experience working in the region. Baidu has over 80% of the search engine market share in China and to enter and succeed in Chinese markets, content must be picked up in the relevant searches and must be adapted to fit in line with Baidu’s unique algorithm and SEO best practices. Welocalize’s multilingual digital marketing agency, Adapt Worldwide, works with many global organizations to develop and culturally adapt online search and digital marketing campaigns to ensure content impacts the right audience.

“Our business is to ensure our clients are supported on every stop of the global journey and for many client organizations in the US and Europe, entering lucrative Chinese markets is a key global growth objective,” said Smith Yewell, Welocalize CEO. “At Welocalize, we have teams of experts who have the right in-depth knowledge required to culturally adapt digital marketing content and monitor performance and analytics with the latest innovative technology. This extra layer of intelligence on our search ranking capabilities means Welocalize clients operating in China can get ahead of the competition with high visibility on Baidu. This means more relevant clicks and greater revenue from their Chinese operations.”

Welocalize 20 Year Anniversary

Welocalize Celebrates 20th Anniversary

The 7th Largest LSP in the World Announces 20 Years in the Business

Frederick, Maryland – June 14, 2017 – Welocalize, global leader in innovative translation and localization solutions, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Since 1997, Welocalize has grown to become a world leader in managed language services and is one of the most well-respected brands in the industry, supporting businesses across the entire global journey from patent filing through digital marketing, localization and quality validation.

Welocalize founders Smith and Julia Yewell formed the company in 1997 in the basement of their home. The company has now grown to over 1,500 employees based in 22 offices all over the world. Welocalize translates and culturally adapts content for many leading global brands into 175 languages and 400 language pairs and last year processed 1.16 billion words.

“We started Welocalize in 1997 with the idea of helping businesses go global and 20 years later, many of our clients get the bulk of their revenue from overseas. The urgency and importance of Welocalize and the provision of language services has escalated over the past two decades, driven by globalization, increased business activity over the internet and the rapid uptake of digital content,” said Smith Yewell, Welocalize CEO and co-founder. “Welocalize is delighted to be celebrating its 20th anniversary and I’m proud of our hard-working global teams and appreciate the loyalty of our clients and employees whose professionalism has helped Welocalize to grow and succeed over the past two decades.”

“The first word Welocalize translated back in 1997 was pathfinder. We weren’t too sure how to go about translating just one brand name but we did what the client asked of us. We translated pathfinder into multiple languages and delivered it to the client,” said Julia Yewell, Welocalize Co-Founder. “That was one word and today we process billions of words per year. To see one word lead to where we are today has been an incredible experience.”

The Welocalize family of companies includes Park IP Translations, a leader in legal language services, Adapt Worldwide, a multilingual digital marketing agency, Agostini Associati, a leader in financial services translations and Welocalize Life Sciences. Welocalize has made a number of significant acquisitions since 1997 to help establish strong expertise across all industry sectors and to further enable clients to be supported across the whole global journey. In 2012 Welocalize acquired Park IP Translations to establish the company in the regulated industries space followed by the acquisition of Texas-based CD Language Solutions (CDLS) and Italy-based Agostini Associati in 2014. 2016 saw the acquisition of London-based Adapt Worldwide, formerly Traffic Optimiser, and the acquisitions of Europe-based Nova Language Services and California-based Global Language Solutions (GLS), both now known as Welocalize Life Sciences. In June 2015, Norwest Equity Partners, a leading middle market investment firm, announced that it had made a significant investment in Welocalize.

“Welocalize is now serving a wider range of clients and doing things we wouldn’t have dreamed would have been possible 20 years ago. It is the dedication to our four company pillars: customer service, innovation, quality and global teamwork that has kept the company ahead of the competition continuously delivering customer-centric solutions,” said Erin Wynn, Welocalize Chief Customer Officer. “Welocalize is proud to be celebrating its 20th anniversary and I truly believe it is Welocalize’s strong culture and talented global teams who have helped Welocalize grow from a small startup to become one of the world leaders in global language solutions.”

Welocalize helps businesses to communicate with customers, partners and employees around the world, launch new products internationally and deliver critical communications to their target audiences.

In 2016, Welocalize was named by independent research firm, Common Sense Advisory (CSA) as the 7th largest language service provider (LSP) in the world and 4th largest in North America. For more information, visit www.welocalize.com
