The goal: to generate more leads internationally

TheFork wanted to localize its marketing content into 12 languages in order to raise its profile among restaurant owners and show them the benefits of its tools.

The aim was to build a lasting relationship with the target audience by regularly providing them with advice and best practices in their mother tongue.

TheFork's needs

To work with specialist translators

TheFork wanted translators who understood the vocabulary of the restaurant trade and could quickly come to grips with the brand’s writing style. It was vital to make the localized content just as convincing as the original content by adapting it to the cultures of each target markets.

To manage significant variations in volume

Above all, TheFork was looking for an efficient and flexible solution. The priority was to be able to manage significant variations in volume with total autonomy and to streamline the site’s translation flows.
