"When I bought an apartment in Ronda in 2001 and a house in 2003, Paul was an invaluable help in my dealings with estate agents, lawyers, at the bank and at the notary. It’s too risky to do it all without a competent interpreter. Many do, but I would strongly advise against it."

Top languages on the web PDF
Thursday, 08 December 2011 07:00

Have you ever wondered about the relative importance of foreign languages in the world of internet communication? If you have a website, have you thought about having it translated into other languages?

The chart below shows the top 10 languages on the Internet.

For example, by translating your website into these 10 languages you would reach 83% of the world's Internet population.

On the other hand, when it comes to internet use, the story is different. There are more users in Germany and Russia than anywhere else in Europe.



But what is clear is, that if you’re operating in the Spanish market, your website needs to be at least in Spanish and English.
