This is the new internationalisation initiative launched by the Department for International Trade (DIT) for medium-sized enterprises (up to 250 employees and turnover < 50 million) based in England.
You will still need to fund a part of the investment (which varies according to where your business is based). But if you plan to do business abroad, it could be the starting point for your international digital presence.
The fund can be used for many activities, like market research, IP advice, translation services, international social media / SEO, trade fairs, independent market visits, consultancy and other commercial services.
ILT can assist you with
Localisation/translation activities (English, Dutch, French, German (Germany, Austria, Switzerland and South Tyrol), Spanish, Portuguese, Italian (Italy and Switzerland), Hungarian, Romanian, Russian, Ukrainian, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, American English, Brazilian Portuguese)
International SEO and social media (Italian, German, Dutch, Portuguese)
Trade fair support in Italy (Milan, Rome, Verona, Bolzano, Torino) and Germany (Frankfurt, Stuttgart)
Language paves the way for your international digital presence, and help is just a click away.
What is localisation?Localisation is a strategy by which you devise how to enter or establish your company's digital or communication presence in a culturally and linguistically diverse context. It goes hand in hand with your wider commercial and product strategy and touches all aspects of a company's international activity. If your product is digital, you need to localise it in the language of your users. Digital marketing activities must be transposed or recreated in the new cultural context to remain relevant. Contractual and licencing agreements need to be accessible in the user's language. And you may need an interpreter to interact effectively with local clients and authorities.
