1. How to integrate SEO into the translation process to maximize global success 

When expanding internationally, there is a common misconception that SEO, and in particular technical SEO, should be done once the website has been built. 

However, by implementing any SEO recommendations after a website has been translated, there could be extensive rework which will delay a website launch and impact on budgets. There are also some aspects in a site’s infrastructure that are essential to optimize in advance to avoid extensive rework later. So, how do you go about building this into the translation process?

3. Ex-Pats Talking About the Use of English in Content Marketing 

Doug and Kelly quickly jump on an interesting topic that most American marketers don’t think about, the acceptable use of the English language in Content Marketing. If you are like their team, getting out of the states is not a regular occurrence and interacting with anyone from another language or country can be a difficult task. As Doug notes, they have become so self-centered as Americans that we expect the world to be just like us. 

Because of this, the rest of the world has had to shift the approach to the languages they use, and English becomes the defacto second language. The big question for us is what form of English? 

In this show, Doug Kessler, an American in England, and Kelly Hungerford, an American in Switzerland, discuss the topic of Global Content Marketing with English at the core and several other Ex-Pat topics you won’t want to miss.
