The retailer thinks there’s a lot of potential in the Spanish-speaking market and wants to better serve customers in this market by offering most of its online shops in Spanish.
CEO Tom te Riele says that entering the Spanish market was a conscious choice. “We’ve done some extensive research into online search volumes and market potentials. Based on the results of this research, we decided to translate our web shops into Spanish. For Spanish speakers it’s now much easier to navigate through our websites and to place an order.”
