Translation is an important part of globalization. In order to be competitive in today’s global marketplace, it is becoming more important for businesses to translate their web sites, user interfaces and documentation into the languages of their potential customers in these rapidly expanding markets. The number of non-English speaking internet users is growing at an incredible rate. According to the Internet World Stats as of November 2015 only 25.9% of internet users were English speaking. The number of Arabic, Russian and Chinese users has been growing at a much greater rate than English users between 2000 and 2015.
