New languages for German and Swiss customers
Zalando will not only enter two new markets, it will also launch extra language versions of its ecommerce website in Germany and Switzerland. Customers will get access to an English-written version of the German Zalando shop, while customers in Switzerland will be able to browse an Italian language version of Zalando.ch.
