Translate Website Bulgarian to English
When we translate your website from Bulgarian to English, we use a two step approach:
- A native Bulgarian fluent English speaker will translate your current Bulgarian website text from Bulgarian to English. The Bulgarian will understand your text perfectly and make a translation without spelling or grammatical errors.
- A native English speaker will proofread the text and localise the text to make it convert more website visitors to customers.
We use this approach as, although a lot of Bulgarians speak and write particularly good English, you only get to really know how the locals speak when you lived in a country for a significant period.
The second translator will also be responsible, if required, to load the page onto your website as they will be able to perform perfect search engine optimisation (SEO) as they know the exact terms that are being used to search for your products and service.
If you have any English speakers that you want to review the text, then we will send the files to you to review and correct.

- The second translator will proofread the text and make any improvements that they feel that will help to convert more website visitors to customers. The second translator will also upload the page to the website, if necessary, and perform the SEO in Bulgarian so that you will rank for your target keywords.
We understand that you make not have a Bulgarian speaker who is qualified to review the translation in detail, so you are relying on us to do a perfect job.

Businesses That Benefit from Website Translation Service in Bulgaria
Companies Doing International ecommerce
For anyone doing business in international markets, website translation as almost 60 percent of buyers said that being able to get information about the product in their own language was more important to them than price.
Companies in Countries With More Than One Language
There are obvious countries with more than one language such as Switzerland (French, Italian, German), Belgium (Dutch, German, French), Canada (English, French).
Yet, it does not even have to be an official language of the country for it to make sense to translate your website into. Many countries have sizable subgroups of people who speak a second primary language such as English in Bulgaria..
Companies Operating In (Inbound) Travel and Tourism
Especially if you are presiding in a popular holiday destination then it is very important that travellers can find information about your business online that they can understand. That is especially true for:
- Hotels, hostels, and other accommodation
- Transportation providers
- Landmarks, sightseeing, culture
- Tour and event organizers
Having access to a fully translated website in their mother tongue makes it much more likely someone will book a tour with you, stay at your place, or take advantage of your services.
This is also valid for other businesses that cater to tourists such as hospitals and government agencies.
Companies Who Offer Digital Products
For businesses with physical products, it is not always easy to branch out into other countries. There is a lot to consider such as shipping costs, opening local brick and mortar branches or storage facilities and other real-world concerns.
However, companies who deal in digital products and services have no such concerns. All they need to do is localize the offerings on their website. They already have the means to sell to anyone any time. This makes it easier to branch out to other parts of the world.
However, besides translating products, it is just as important to adjust the website they are being sold on. That usually means translating landing pages, documentation, and other web property.
Another industry benefiting hugely from website translation in the digital space is the e-learning sector.
Companies Who Want to Improve Their SEO And Search Traffic
When people search for anything on the web, they usually do so in their own language. That means, if your site does not exist in the language your potential customers use, they will forever be oblivious to your existence.
In addition to that, translating your site to have more than one language allows you to cast wider net because more people will be able to find you online.
Setting Up Business In Bulgaria
If you are an international company that is setting up to do business in Bulgaria then you will need to communicate with your new customers in Bulgarian.
Many of the younger, well educated Bulgarians speak English, or sometimes another foreign language, but when they are not speaking to a foreigner then they will be speaking in their mother tongue.
The older generation, that were schooled in the Communist era, are far more likely to speak Russian than English even if they are successful businesses men or women.
So it is vital that you perform your digital marketing in Bulgarian to attract the customers that you need to succeed.
Some of our team are native English speakers so we can clearly understand your business and explain any complications it to our multi-lingual Bulgarian staff.

Website Localisation Services
Website translation is the first step towards the internationalization of your business but there are other considerations are to be considered to ensure your website is successful such as website localisation.

Precise, culture-sensitive website translation is the key to success in online markets and can only be created by native speakers or someone who has lived in the target language country for some time.
Mistakes in this area can be very costly in terms of reputation and revenue.

Website localisation, on the other hand, goes beyond this and considers other factors which might influence a customer visiting your website, such as colours, imagery, or design.
Depending on your target language, it may be necessary to modify some elements of your website, such as currency, time and date formats or design, in case of right-to-left reading languages such as Arabic.
