We localised Outokumpu’s extensive website into Simplified Chinese, Italian, German and Finnish.

Outokumpu is a global leader in stainless steel, employing over 7,600 people in more than 30 countries.

Looking to expand in the Far East, Outokumpu asked Web-Translations to localise their extensive website into Simplified Chinese. Beyond translating the static website content, Outokumpu had many other assets such as case studies which had to be edited and localised. Based on the successful localisation of the Chinese site, Outokumpu then opted to localise the site into Italian and German, and more recently, into Finnish.
