NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TransPerfect, the world’s largest provider of language and technology solutions for global business, today formally announced that it was retained by BALR. to localize the brand’s website and e-commerce store into Dutch, German, French, and Spanish. This has resulted in a significant increase in online sales since its launch in 2018.

BALR. is a Netherlands-based international luxury lifestyle brand whose football-inspired apparel and accessories have gained popularity both in Holland and throughout Europe. Emerging markets are a key component of the BALR. expansion strategy. They identified GlobalLink OneLink as their ideal website localization solution, enabling them to localize their online assets without requiring in-house resources or significant IT and project management resources. GlobalLink OneLink has also given BALR. the capability to easily make content updates and have their sites remain current in other languages.
