If you sell online, do you sell internationally? Consider using this tool.Posted Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at 11:22 AM
Probably 40% and sometimes more of or sales are international. Besides every day sales, our international folks can help with auctions as well. One of our items would have stopped around $900, but because a fellow in Italy wanted it, the price went over $1,300.
I have been considering an imbedded translator on both my web pages and also in the description of my items for sale on selling venues like eBay.
I like the idea of a translator built in, but when I use Google translate in my other businesses I often have to "fine tune" what is says.
To do that I copy and paste the translation back into Google and see how it comes out in English. Sometimes it is a little goofy so I choose other English words to see if the translator can be more accurate.
It usually works out eventually, but takes a little time so I will see how it works in a selling template. If it requires extra manipulating each time I list something different, which is most of the time, then I will reserve it for higher priced items.
