When deciding between rival online offers, international users often prefer to browse and buy in their native language. So a multilingual web presence is becoming increasingly important for organisations with global ambitions. AST provides cost-effective solutions to create multilingual websites:
Complete website translation with layout check
To support your international marketing and geo-targeting efforts we’ll provide a complete translation of your website into one or more foreign languages. Whatever your campaign goals are (lead generation, conversions or traffic) the assigned specialised translators will invest time to familiarise themselves with your offer. Overall, we make sure the final output is not only optimised but also adheres to your company’s communication guidelines, terminology, and corporate tone of voice.
We can work directly in HTML files or with localisation file formats from all well-known CMSs. We can even integrate directly with your CMS.
We offer site structure options such as in-country local domains or language code subfolders, and landing pages can be search-engine optimised (SEO) in multiple languages.
Once the translated version is uploaded in draft format we’ll carry out careful layout checks as standard to ensure that characters, line breaks and text sections are all exactly where they should be.
Translation in Content Management Systems (CMS)
Many companies manage their website content with CMSs such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. Whether you’ve already generated gettext, XLIFF or other text-based files with your content ready for translation, or you want to use a plugin such as WPML, AST can help set up seamless workflows.
Translation with WPML
We want to make WordPress website localisation as simple as possible for you. To ensure a seamless and transparent process we’ve partnered with OnTheGoSystems, the makers of WPML. As WPML partners we’re perfectly placed to:
Translate your storefront in WooCommerce, BigCommerce and Shopify straight from your WordPress site

Deliver translations directly to your website

Tom Walters, The Dairy Agency
The team at AST Language Services were great at responding to our request and coming back to us with the options available in a timely manner. Our translation project was completed quickly and was correct first time - resulting in a happy client at the end of the job. I would recommend AST Language Services to businesses looking for a diligent and friendly team to partner with on any future translation projects.
I was really impressed with
AST Language Services. They were extremely quick to respond, the information and quote they provided was very clearly laid out, and the turnaround of the work was far quicker than I expected. I would not hesitate to use them again.
Daryl Willett, Sirenum
Professional, Responsive and Friendly. I recently worked with AST and they were quick to respond & offered competitive rates vs. other companies. I picked AST as we shared similar visions with regards to work ethics, company policies and being able to meet the deadline. I was extremely impressed with the translation and surprised that they were able to deliver such a large project in a short space of time, ensuring that I meet my deadlines.
I would strongly recommend using AST - they use native speaker translators which helps when trying to understand your audience and is just a pleasant experience. You won't regret working with them.
