One Hour Translation is handling many more requests from China and other countries
For retailers in China, the Internet has become a window through which they can sell their goods directly to the rest of the world, especially “retail-challenged” areas such as large parts of Russia and the Arabic-speaking world. And an Israeli firm is helping them reach those previously hard-to-get customers.
According to One Hour Translation, the Israel-based firm that is the world’s largest online translation agency, requests for translations by Chinese online retailers has climbed dramatically in the past year as retailers and manufacturers reach out to new customer bases. Requests for translations from Mandarin to Russian rose approximately 81% during that period, and for Chinese to Arabic, requests were up about 52%.
