Why you need multillingual knowledbase

If you’re reading this article, you probably want to know why you need multilingual support when working with customers worldwide. You are well aware that English is the most spoken language globally. But English is in third place in terms of the number of people who speak it. At the top of this list, you can find Chinese and Spanish.

Also, Internet World Stats says that most Internet users live in China and India. And more than 1 billion people in each of these countries. In Europe, where people speak 20+ languages – the population is about 740 million. While in the US, this figure is over 330 million people. Just compare each market’s size and how many more people you can reach by adding more languages.

If your target audience is in the US or UK, you do not need to think about multilingual support. But if you have clients from Europe and other non-English-speaking countries, create appropriate language versions. The percentage of people who know English in a country may be minimal, and knowledge in other languages is an advantage. Here’s the information on why you need multilingual customer service, its benefits, and how to do it.
