As a web owner you must be obsessed with statistics and analytics. If you happen to take a careful look at your website’s statistics you might find thousands of visitors accessing your site out of which half of them leave the website quickly. The reason for this might be various reasons including language, clumsy site, inappropriate content and the like. While most of these factors can be fixed, web owners fail to fix the language portion. Yes, any person who stumbles on your website need not have to be one who knows English or any other language for that matter. When they find there is no option to change languages, they immediately leave the website. No one is going to waste their time looking for a solution.
