San Diego, CA, December 06, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Imani Lee, Inc. and Imani Lee Language Services has been providing language services to organizations around the world for over 17 years. In this regard, e-commerce providers are underutilizing their primary sales channel by limiting the ability for non-English speaking consumers to engage and purchase from their websites.
As e-commerce continues its rapid expanse globally the stakes are high for online retailers. With 6,900 languages spoken globally, in order to reach 84% of the most beneficial buyers an e-commerce website needs to offer a minimum of 10 languages.
Of the 7 billion people on Earth, 3 billion speak the ten 10 languages listed below.
Languages/Speakers of the Languages
1. Chinese - 1.3 billion total speakers
2. Hindi/Urdu - 970 million total speakers
3. Spanish - 550 million total speakers
4. English (Yes – English in #4) - 328 million native speakers. 1.8 million total speakers but many with varying degrees of proficiency
5. Arabic - 260 million total speakers
6. Portuguese - 230 million total speakers
7. Bengali - 203 native speakers with 253 million total speakers
8. Russian - 145 million native speakers. Adding other countries where Russian is spoken it is 300 million total speakers
9. Japanese - 130 million total speakers
10. Punjabi - 120 million total speakers
Each year, as more countries achieve middle-class status for their citizens, more people are getting internet access and joining the ranks of e-commerce shoppers. However, only 52 percent of the most visited e-commerce websites globally provide multi-lingual support in up to 6 languages.
Lee E. Martin, Chief Executive Officer of Imani Lee, Inc. stated, “We recently observed the U.S. Cyber Monday where over $9.4 billion of e-commerce spending occurred which was a 19.7% increase over 2018. This year, Black Friday online sales in the U.S. experienced a 22.3% increase. In China, Singles Day, which occurred November 11, reported nearly $70 billion in sales. This annual Chinese marketing event is the world’s busiest online shopping day. If more organizational leaders endorsed and provided the necessary marketing spend for multi-lingual expansion of their e-commerce channels, they could increase hard dollar return-on-investment (ROI) via additional product sales. It is evident that this trend in global shoppers is only accelerating and Imani Lee is here help organizations capitalize on this important movement.”
