In order to attract Catalan-speaking customers and clients, you will have to familiarize yourself with the idea of Catalan localization. Catalan localization is the process of adapting the language, appearance, and functionality of a product or website for Catalan-speaking regions in Spain and France. Catalan presents a variety of unique challenges to Catalan-speaking localization professionals.
To ensure a positive reception of your software, website, and documentation, it is a good idea to work with an experienced localization company. Your localization service provider should employ native Catalan-speaking teams of localization specialists who understand how to anticipate and solve the myriad of potential Catalan localization issues.
