F. SNEAK PEEK: NEXT ISSUE OF MultiLingual

The next issue of MultiLingual features a focus on "Startup Localization". If you are a subscriber, this issue will be at your fingertips by mid-April.

F.1. The Language of Unicorns by Jacob Stempniewicz

Traditional businesses are tied to their physical location and have no need to localize. On the other hand, eCommerce and mobile apps are accessible from anywhere and by anyone, including people who don't speak your language. Startups have localization in their DNA.

F.2. The catch-22 of startup localization by Louise Faherty

The number of companies actually localizing their products in the startup scene is at a low simmer. Looking through the endless one-to-watch startup lists at the beginning of a year, only a handful of upcoming and promising startups are planning to expand their customer base beyond the English speaking world.

F.3. Startup localization and the eCommerce hosting landscape by Ben Whittacker-Cook

If, conservatively, 40% of the world's population has an internet connection, then that's a potential customer base of around 1.5 billion and rising. Global 'etail' sales are expected to hit $1.5 trillion by 2018, with North America currently the largest regional market for online shopping, followed by Asia/Oceania and Western Europe.
