It is an excellent guide for anyone looking to learn and improve their web localization strategies in order to reach global markets. The non-technical approach allows a wide variety of professionals, students, and academics to understand the complexities in this area. The checklists and real-world examples are of tremendous value and allow the reader to instantly gain more insights.

I highly recommend this book.” - Carsten A. Kneip, Program Manager, Microsoft Corporation
