The way of doing business has changed drastically. It is rather easy to develop a customer base in today’s Internet era than it was 20 years ago. E-commerce is the new way of the world. A company in India can have consumers from all over the world, can sell their products to people from different regions of different countries.

According to statistics by Internet Retailer on e commerce sales growth from 2012 to 2017, the sales has increased from 230.56bh in 2012 to $453.46bh in 2017.

It is clear from the stats that E-commerce has brought in new consumers. Its growth
has led to the growth of many companies. It has created the perfect platform for
global recognition.

In 2017, the frequency of online shopping has increased about eleven times for most age groups.

Translation plays a vital role in the growth of any business. When people come across sites that are in their native language, they are more likely to be interested in staying on the site, buying from the site, and visiting it again. In case of a site that is only available in English, then the chances of a non-English speaking viewer leaving the site is extremely high.

In fact, a survey conducted on people from different countries asking them how strongly they agree or disagree on the fact that they would buy products when the information is in their own language – 55% of consumers prefer buying from places where information is in their own language.
