Daco Solutions

CASE STUDY

Localisation of the Daco website into 6 European languages.

Daco Solutions is a leading UK manufacturer of Slitter Rewinder and Rotary Die Cutting equipment. It designs and manufactures machinery used for label printing, narrow web and converting industries.

Daco Solutions’ original website consisted of a static brochure of 20 pages. After attending a series of exhibitions across Europe, Daco Solutions wanted to demonstrate a greater commitment to their European distributors and markets. With grant funding from UKTI, Daco Solutions decided to expand their web presence into new European markets.

The Daco Solutions website contains marketing information and technical machinery specifications. This meant that the selection of translators and proofreaders who had both technical and marketing translation experience was a key part of the project’s success.

Web-Translations assisted Daco Solutions in the translation and localisation of their website for a range of European markets, using specific translators with specialist experience. The multilingual website now generates new business enquiries from around the world and these are automatically forwarded on to the relevant distributors across Europe.
